Pratt's Primary Corner

Weekly Update- May 11, 2018

Week at a Glance

Reading- Students are loving our new read aloud, Wild Robot. We've really been able to discuss author motivations with this one, because the author does some very unique and purposeful things with his writing.

Math- We just finished up Unit 6 this week. Next week we will be doing an awesome computer science module which will be integrated with math. The math focus will be on multiples and patterns.

Science- We have started studying meal worms this week and will continue for the remainder of the school year. Students will be able to to see how they change throughout their life cycle, and we will conduct some experiments with them as well. We also visited Mr. Bush's classroom (4th grade teacher) on Thursday to learn about animal adaptations.

Social Studies- This week the New Albany Historical Society came to teach us about New Albany in the past. We were able to see some really cool things and learned that New Albany has changed a lot!

Writing- We are currently writing a classroom ABC book. We came up with a word for each letter of the alphabet that represents our classroom and each student will design a page.

Entrepreneur Day

Next week, Thursday, May 17th, we will be attending Entrepreneur Day. This is a time where we will visit the Intermediate Building and be able to purchase items 4th graders have created to sell.

If your child would like to purchase anything, please send money with them on May 17th. Please only send one dollar bills and change (excluding pennies).

Also, if you have extra plastic grocery bags, please send them in so we can use them that day. :)
