Writer's Workshop/Health/Spelling

WRITER'S WORKSHOP:


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.


HEALTH:


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!
