Mrs. Moats' Class

Friday, May 6, 2016

This time of year gets a little hectic with things going on at school! Please be sure to check the green folder each night for notes about up and coming things! Thank you! Please contact me if you have any questions about anything!

Our annual sing off is next week, May 11 beginning at 8:30. Our class has chosen to wear blue or black clothes.

We were invited to learn how to play kickball with our reading buddies! We had a blast!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Here is our week in review:

Spelling/Word Work: *I can make compound words.

Reading/Language: We started an author study on Chris Van Allsburg. He wrote the Polar Express, Jumangi and Zathura to name a few. He is a very mysterious author and illistrator. We will finish our study up next week by comparing and contrasting his books.

Writing: We composed letters to the Daniel Boone Regional Library to persuade them to put in a library in Holts Summit. Last week, we composed letters to the YMCA to persuade them to bring a YMCA to Holts Summit.

Science/Social Studies: Since we wrote to different states last week, we talked about our own state this week. We will finish talking about Missouri early next week and talk about agriculture before we go on our field trip!

Math: *I can use tools to measure length. *I can measure the length of an object using two different units of measurement.

May Character Trait-Forgiveness

Forgiveness means that you accept others even though they have treated you wrongly or made a mistake.

  • I will continue my end of the year reading testing on Monday
