Science News

Science tests will be handed back on Tuesday. I had a student who still needed to finish which is why they weren't returned today. We will be finishing up Chapter 4 tomorrow and will test on Thursday. Don't be surprised if your child asks to ride their bike instead of using a car to prevent extra air pollution! :)

Reader's Workshop

This week we are studying Greek Myths. Students are in one of three groups: Pandora's Box, Midas Touch, or Medusa. The students will be reading multiple versions of the myths and compare and contrast them. Throughout the week, the students will be acting out their myth which will be very exciting!
