Week of May 9-13
From Stacy and Carol
We have 13 days left with our kids this school year! Let's make sure we make each of them count! This time of year is the perfect time to try a new technique, or strategy.....maybe something you were considering changing for next year. Why not go ahead and try it now???? Since you have built relationships, and expectations are in place, this would be the perfect time to think outside the box!

Social Studies Inventory- From Kaye Smith
Each teacher has an inventory sheet that came with their SS kit. This inventory sheet should last five years. Instructions for doing the inventory is at the top of the inventory sheet. When we trained teachers on the social studies kits, it was part of the training. If you send out a reminder to your teachers, they should be able to pull the inventory sheet from their SS kit.
If for some reason a teacher does not have an inventory sheet, they are linked on the K-4 Social Studies Homepage. The document is titled "K-4 Social Studies Books Lists, 2015-2016." It is an excel document with tabs at the bottom for each grade level.
