Reminders and Updates
Our field trip to the Parks-Bentley House is this TUESDAY. We are still missing a lot of permission slips. Please send them in tomorrow with $3.00.
We enjoyed our visit with the author, Brad Herzog. Order forms went home on Thursday if you would like to order one of his books.
Tomorrow we will be learning about simple machines and ending the week with a ball and ramp activity that demonstrates friction. In addition we will be practicing ALL of the measuring skills we have learned this year as a review before the NYS Science Test next week.
Historical Fiction Book Clubs (Reader's Workshop)
You should be seeing their "Book in a Bag" come home EVERY night! In addition, please ask your child if they have Reader's Workshop HW. Many students have been forgetting to complete their homework.
Our last unit is called "Literary Essays". We will be reading short stories and using close reading strategies to form our own themes and to evaluate characters.
