Notes from the Top Dog Teacher

Thank you so much for all the Teacher Appreciation gifts and well wishes this week! I definitely feel spoiled. What a great way to end my teaching career.


Our final field trip of the year is coming up May 17th. We will be walking to McBride park to enjoy outdoor games from both the past and present. We will also eat lunch at the pavilion before walking back to school. If you are interested in walking along and helping please let me know!


Our Fact Frenzy celebration is coming up May 13th. Please send in those white t-shirts for your student to decorate!


If you have time please come up and check the lost and found items! We have lots of items that need to be claimed. All items left will be sent to the clothing bank at the end of the year.

Reading:

Our fairy tale reader's theater's are going great. Students are reading with great fluency and really getting into their parts! This week we will read fairy tales and learn about fairy tale elements.


Writing:

After completing our writing prompt I was so amazed at how far these students have come in writing narrative stories. This week we will continue working in our poetry folders.


Math:

Our math groups will be working on concepts that trip us up.

We will continue to take our 3-minute timed addition tests. If you student is stuck on a fact test please help them practice at home!



Content:

Our "Then an Now" unit is well under way. Students have picked a topic to research and create a stop motion video to demonstrate the change in their topic over the years.

We will also be sharing the homework questions that you provided answers to this week.

It is amazing how quickly things change and students are enjoying learning about the changes.
