Mrs. Rish's Class Skills Agenda

May 6

Language Arts

We will be completing student led projects during the last weeks of school. This Project Based Learning style allows the children to take what they have learned in all of the different subjects and practice these skills in a real world situation.

We are continuing to work through the five areas of Daily Five. This design gives students lots of practice in the most essential aspects of literacy.

Spelling Words

because, friend, good, does, seven, eight, beautiful, read, different, favorite, said, awesome, people, every, before

There will be a spelling test on Friday.


We have completed all vocabulary words for the year.

Science & Social Studies

These topics will relate to the question that students elect to address in the group project.


We will complete our math studies this school year with arrays, tangrams, and odd and even numbers. We also will continue to work with word problems.

Please work on math addition and subtraction facts at home. Students must be able to complete 20 problems in one minute in order to receive a 4 on the report card at the end of the year.

Fun with odd and even


There will be no more homework grids for the rest of the year. Please continue to work on improving skills at home. Students should be completing these activities:

  • Studying spelling words

  • Reading
