Mrs. Baker's Class Newsletter

May 4,2017

What is going on?

Writing: We will be writing personal narratives or realistic fiction with a defined theme.


Spelling Words and Grammar: We will be studying the use of abbreviations.

We are done with all our sight word for the year.


Reading: We will be starting our drama unit. This class will do very well! We have some actors and actresses for sure!

I will be working on reading assessments.


Math: This week we will introduce the concept of multiplication by discussing the connection of repeated addition. Students will model, create, and describe multiplication situations in which equivalent sets of concrete objects are joined. We will end the week with a creative activity where students will create a set of buildings/windows using arrays!


Science: Students will compare and give examples of the ways living organisms depend on each other and on their environment such as food chains within a garden, park, beach, lake and wooded area. This involves learning about different types of food chains and the players in them: producer, consumer, and decomposer. We will end the week by creating a food web in the classroom.

This and That...

Volunteer lunch on 5/24 - We are so lucky at Patsy Sommer to have fabulous educators who give tirelessly to provide wonderful learning opportunities for our stallions; wonderful staff who support our students & learning community; awesome students who are talented learners & leaders; and an amazing group of parents and volunteers who give of their time, talent, and treasure to support our school community!
