Week of March 16-20

A peak into our week!

The students worked so hard preparing for this Reading and Language Arts Benchmark Test! They were focused and ready t o learn! I really do feel confident in their learning from Unit 4! We will begin Unit 5 starting Monday! I am excited to see how much more they with grow and learn within this next unit too :)

The math students learned about the irrational number of Pi (π). They enjoyed learned about this unique number and its history!

On a sadder note, Ms. Aniya is not a member of our class anymore. To help make her feel loved, we wrote her letters as she transitions to a new learning environment! We will miss her dearly.
