Happy April Room 306 Families!
April is Poetry Month so this week we are kicking off our unit with lots of exciting activities with poetry. If you have any favorite poem books at home you want to bring in and share please do so!
We are also finishing up our Fractions Unit so we can begin our Measurement Unit next week :)
MOST IMPORTANTLY, this is our TESTING WEEK- don't worry, as we've discussed, it's just a practice as our school is piloting the Smarter Balanced Assessments (formerly the CST/STAR testing). We will work hard on taking these tests on the Chromebooks but with zero stress! Just testing out the waters of this new State Test so you'll be ready next year for when it really does count :)
IMPORTANT: Students NEED to be HERE AND ON TIME each day we are testing, otherwise they'll be sent to another classroom for the entire morning. They will then have to make up the test at a later date with other students who also missed a testing portion.
What's Happenin' in Room 306?
