Volunteers are needed for both morning and afternoon shifts to help supervise and direct games. To help you plan your volunteering shift the 3rd and 4th grade field day will be from 9:30-11:30am and 1st and 2nd grade will be from 1:00-3:00pm. Kindergarten parents please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to be part of their end of the year activities. The field day games are centered around a theme and all created by Mrs. Fox. So all we need is YOU and your excitement to help make this a success!

If you are interested in helping out in the morning or afternoon and want to be part of a fun filled day, you can contact the field day coordinator, Amy Roudebush, by email at or by phone 317-690-1709 and she will be happy to assign you a spot and a game to direct. Please make sure you have completed a background check and the anti-bullying video online before volunteering.

Your help is much appreciated and we need YOU to come out on May 29th and enjoy with us CRES Field Day 2015!! Make your kid's day and come out and PLAY!!!

We will finish Frindle this week! We have been working on comprehension strategies: connections, questions, predictions, and visualizing. The students have been writing down sticky notes of their thinking as they read to work on improving their comprehension in chapter books.

Then we will begin our Final Unit - Book Clubs. Students will be choosing their own books to read with a group of students and share their thinking in their very own book club.


We will begin our last Unit of Study - Poetry. Students will be reading lots of different poems and creating poems themselves.

Word Study

We will move into Multiple Meaning Words or Homonyms this week. Homonyms are words that are spelled the same but mean different things. For example, fine which could mean a payment you owe 'You owe a fine for the library book' or a good feeling ' I feel fine today'.

We will read the book called The King Who Rained along with Amelia Bedelia books that are FULL of homonyms.

PBL WEATHER UNIT - Wonderful Wacky Weather

We are finishing our weather projects to SHOW our expertise over weather :) Information to follow regarding times for project showcase.


We will begin Unit 15 - Measuring Length, learning how to measure length, adding & subtracting measurement, and comparing different types of length.
