Carnival is coming soon! Mark your calendars for May 15th. We need classroom volunteers to run games and help setup. We also will be making a basket for the raffle. Our basket theme is Family Movie/Game night. Students will get Bucks to spend at the carnival store when they bring items for the basket. Snacks, movies, snuggly blankets, family games, etc. would be great!!! Thank you!
I can’t believe it’s May already! We are deep in many projects and I am really so excited about all the things that the students are doing…we have almost completed our electronic books of the animal reports that students wrote. They have created pages, dropped in pictures, cited sources, created a bibliography and done a voice recording on each page. Your children are great writers! They have started their last writing project, which is an opinion piece. In two days they have learned how to state and support their opinions in their writing. They are getting ready (finally) to take the math test on addition and subtraction with regrouping! We have kids that have already met their Reading Counts goals and some that are over 100 points! Lots of excitement in our classroom these days;)
We will be doing our second round of self manager applications on Friday. I have some students who have really worked hard on improving their behavior in our three major areas of Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible. If your child has met the goals, they will bring home a signature sheet next week for you to sign.
