Peek at the Week
LANGUAGE ARTS -
We will be back to normal this week! There will be a reading, grammar, and spelling test on Friday. Our class will also be focusing on non-fiction text features in guided reading groups.
This month, in our efforts to prepare our students for fourth grade, the reading log will look similar to what students will use next year. Each day, students will be required to write something or answer a question based on what they read during their 25 minutes of reading each day. Students will turn this reading log in each Monday. Please sign your child's reading log and encourage them to do their best work. Thanks!
Students are working on a plant and animal book that reviews what they have learned the past few weeks. We will be sharing these books with the kindergartners! This project will take the place of a unit test.
Students will continue to work on their animal research rough drafts this week.
There will be a test on Friday on Unit 5 Lesson 5. Students should be studying their spelling words each day. They can use https://www.spellingcity.com/ndonnay/ . Test fixes are due each Monday.
CHARACTER EDUCATION -
Each month students should bring in an example of the monthly character trait to hang on our class bulletin board. May's trait of the month is SERVICE. Ask your child how they can show courage at school and at home. SERVICE bulletin board items are due on May 6th. Please turn this in ASAP!
