Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of May 16th
A Note from Mrs. Myerson
We have TWO more lessons in our Journeys Reading curriculum left! That will take us to the end of May, and the rest of the year will be review and assessment in Reading. We are also starting our 9th and final unit in Math. This week in Science, we will have our friends from Rutgers University Haskin Shellfish Research Lab come visit our students and educate them on the importance of Oyster Restoration. We will be painting and bagging oyster shells to drop in the bay! For this shell bagging activity on Friday, we are asking for parents to send in an old t-shirt and sneakers (that you won't mind getting dirty) with your child so their clothes don't get ruined.
This week will begin our final Reading Level assessments to determine overal student progress in Reading. I look forward to meeting with students one on one to assess their reading levels and to see just how far they have come! We are getting ready for 2nd grade!
Finally,if you have not done so, please sign and return the Cape May Zoo field trip permission slips! The trip will be held on Friday, May 27th!
