RETEST...we didn't study!
I was disappointed in these grades because I gave them study notes. From the test scores I could tell that some of them did not study.
We love to work with our reading and play buddies.
Everyday the kids ask do we get to experiment?

On January 22nd our class wrote about their dreams. You will find these creations in the Wednesday Folder.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Science: We are continuing right with our study of Matter. The students are loving the experiments that come along with this unit. Next week we will study dissolving and particle size.
Math: We are studying measurement, this week we have been working with rulers to measure the nearest eighth of an inch. Beginning tomorrow we will work with perimeter, area and volume.
ELA: Students are beginning to focus on intentional writing for a prompt. We have already written to the prompt:Write about time you were brave and next week we will write towards another prompt. Reading groups are meeting as usual. Word Study groups have begun to look for words around the world that they can add to their groups.
Social Studies: Soon we will be finishing up our World War II unit. The students have absolutely loved working on this unit. I am excited that our Valentine's movie will be about WWII.
