Writer's Workshop/Health/Spelling


We are working on Descriptive/Informative Writing in our homeroom. We will also be "teaming" with Mrs. Bealke to work on Persuasive Writing during the month of May.


We are continuing to "team" with Mrs. Blankenship on a unit dealing with Feelings and Relationships. The students have enjoyed working as a WHOLE grade level (with Mrs. LeMay's Class) during this time. The focus for this week was Empathy.

SPELLING: We just finished up with prefixes and suffixes during the past 2 spelling units. Next week is a review unit. Remember there will be 25 words this time!
