Next Week

Up-and-Coming

ELA and SCIENCE: Our story next week is a play called, "The Baker's Neighbor." We will study this genre and have fun performing our play for our peers. Students continue to work on their salmon presentations. This week we spent time researching the life cycle of the salmon and taking notes on Google Drive. Next week we will write our paragraphs an begin designing our slides. If you want to take a look at your student's two-column notes, ask him/her to log on to Google Drive and show you!
MATH: We will finish Bridges Unit 2 this week and take our preassessment for Unit 3.

Next Friday we have a FRIDAY SING!
