Curriculum

Math--This week students will practice interpreting picture and bar graphs. They will take data they find to create and analyze their own graph.


Reading --This week we will review all we have learned about character and setting and how this helps them to understand what they have read.


Science-- We will wrap up our study of the Desert by putting together our final presentation for Open House!







Reminders: There are lots of reminders this week!!


Purple sheets are due by May 16th.



Open House and Fine Arts night Thursday 5-7



Field Day


T-Shirts and Ice Cream: T-shirts for the event will be the grade level shirts that were provided at the beginning of the year by PTA. If a student has lost their shirt, they are encouraged to wear the color of their grade level. Woolley’s ice cream will be a rest/snack station for both kids and teachers. The price for the ice cream is $1.25, and the money must be given to classroom teachers before or on Field day to receive ice cream on that day. The students will have two choices: Vanilla and Chocolate.


Student Lunch/Water: The kids will need to bring a sack lunch to be eaten in the classroom or outside in a shaded area. Please have your child bring a marked water bottle, and encourage them to drink plenty of water throughout the day.


Please remind your students to bring a marked water bottle, and encourage them to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
