Eagle Elementary - Mrs. Grant (May 13, 2016)

From Mrs. Ottinger

Dear Eagle Elementary Parents & Students,

It is hard to believe, but the last month of school is here! It has been such fun sharing books and reading with you this year. I hope I’ve read some of your favorites as well as introducing you to some new books. All library materials (books, magazines, and audio) are due by May 16, 2016. This is 2 weeks before the end of school and will give both of us time to search, locate, and inventory the books that we have. If you need help identifying which books you have checked out, please feel free to contact me at any time.

The students earned a show and tell day (they voted!) so I said they could bring something school appropriate in this MONDAY (tomorrow) and it has to be able to fit in their backpack. It will come home Monday.

Shark Dissection

This day was such a success, thanks to all of our volunteers who helped! Also, thank you for donating items to support our afternoon. :) It was much appreciated!

Book Buddy Hike on Friday

If you wondered why their shoes were a bit muddy, it's because we chaperoned our Kinder book buddies on a hike! (the shoes look pretty good here... it was later) :)

What we've been up to....

Readers Workshop

We continue reading Out of my Mind, which has struck many discussions in our social issues unit of study. The students are working hard finishing their book clubs and will this week.

Word Study

We continue to work on dissecting sentences and will have our last Words Their Way sort this week.


We decided to have some fun and write another narrative before school is out. We are adapting fairy tales and working through a rigorous writing checklist and focusing on sentence structure and word choice.

Social Studies

We finished our learning with this unit and took the vocabulary test Friday. We will start the end of unit project next week.


No more math homework this year.
