A Note From Mrs. Waters
On May 10th, we will be having a writer's cafe. We would like to invite all parents to come and hear a written piece by your child. This will take place in our classroom at 8:45. Since it is Mother's Day, we'll be reciting a special poem for the mothers.
Next week the students will be taking the Gates test for reading. Please make sure that your child is getting plenty of rest, is eating breakfast and has a healthy snack and lunch.
We are doing an ABC countdown to the end of the year. Please be sure to check the calendar daily incase your child needs to wear something or bring something in to school that day.
The students are starting their second PE unit in swimming on Sunday. Please read the attached letter from Mr. Pratley.
The comprehension strategy that we have been working on this week is visualising.
Made sure that we are using transitions in our writing and that our stories have a conclusion.
