This week, I loved when......
- a student held the door open for their classmates to enter the gym, and in return kids stopped and said thank you.
- the excitement over orange floats!
- every student paired up for science review and all kids worked so well!
- I received a positive note from a substitute.
- all the kids worked together to clean up the classroom.
Tuesday's Field Trip
All parent chaperones should have received an email from me on Thursday and a packet of information from your child's Friday Folder. Please contact me ASAP if you didn't receive the email or packet.
I hope you had the opportunity to read Mr. Amesbury's letter regarding lunches for the trip. Please note that the lunches will sit outside in a pavilion for a few hours. It would be a great idea to include ice packs in lunches.
Last, please make sure your child wears sneakers and apply sunscreen prior to the trip. It's going to be a a great experience!
Reading Interviews - I am just about done with the interviews. I love to see the growth the kids have made since the fall!
Revolutionary War Assessment - If your child finished, you found his/her graded assessment in their Friday Folder. A few kids need to finish up tomorrow!
PAWS - I am really enjoying the new rubric for PAWS. It's a great way for kids to focus on a particular area of the assignment. The middle column is the sweet spot, right where 4th graders should be at this time of the year!
On Monday, June 3rd, they will take the written portion.
