This is the last newsletter for this year. We want to take a moment to THANK YOU for a wonderful year! It was been great watching the students learn and grow both as readers and mathematicians! They have learned so much!
Madison Field Trip!
We had a fabulous trip to Madison! The kids sure enjoyed the field trip and we are so thankful for the support of the PTO, as they paid for the entire trip!
Remember to keep reading over the summer and make sure you check out the summer programs at the Waukesha Public Library! Keep in mind that the activities are free and very family friendly!
A couple reminders for summer math: Mathematicians, you will have access to your Tenmarks account over the summer until it shuts down for good. Also, you may practice on Prodigy if you would like. Practice those math facts too!
Reading & Language Workshop
Students have just completed their Book Creator books and have presented to their classmates about the topic that they researched for our historical informational writing. The projects that the students completed to show their learning were informative and creative. The speeches were well rehearsed and fun to listen to! We are all so proud of our writers!
Talking Points for ELA:
What was your favorite book that you read this year?
What was your favorite book that your teacher read this year?
How have your grown as a reader/writer this year?
Last week mathematicians worked on time: elapsed time and money: making change. We will complete the week with some problem solving tasks blending these 2 ideas (time & money) and complete the year with games that review concepts. Mathematicians, you all have grown in your math problem solving skills, math talk and math procedures throughout this year! You have shown flexibility with numbers and an increased awareness of number sense. Continue thinking, persevering, and listening to each other!
Talking Points for Math:
How many different ways can you say the digital time 3:15?
If you buy 2 muffins for $3.15 each, and pay with a $10 bill, how much change would you get?
How has your understanding of math grown this year?
