Reading - The students have successfully completed the first portion of the SBAC reading assessment. Wednesday they will complete the final component of this test which is all writing. Talk with them about how they can site their sources and remind them as they walk out the door on Wednesday. Students will be starting a new story next week titled, "Lewis and Clark and Me". This is a historical fiction based on the travels of Lewis and Clark all told from the dog, Seaman's, point of view. What a great story and an excellent read for the summer.

Science - We are finishing up the unit on weather and will start a unit on volcanoes and the Earth's layers in the next week or so. Our final unit will cover rock and minerals as we close in on the end of the year.

Social Studies - We are going to delve into Lewis and Clark in the next few weeks and learn as much as we can about these two great explorers. Not only will we be reading about them in our reading books, but we'll also reading in Social Studies.

Writing - We are on the downward slope of our Poetry Unit. The students will be finishing up this large task by May 15th. This has been a fun and enjoyable way to think outside the box for the students.

May 5th out on the playground. If you have lost the slip just send in an envelope with $3.00 with your child's name on the outside.

Class Cookout - Last Day of School

I would like to arrange a cookout on the last day of school for our homeroom. I would need a parent or two to help with the grill and setting up if possible. A sign-up genius will be sent out in early May with the items necessary. Any parents are welcome to come, just give me a heads up for food counts.

Please let me know if anyone is willing to volunteer and bring a grill to cook hotdogs. We will hold this from 11:30-1:00 along with a Kickball Game (possibly parents against kids if we have the numbers).
