More Important Notes and Last Week’s Review

Posted on

Hi everyone,
My apologies! I had this all typed out last Thursday and never hit “publish”! I’ve made adjustments so it makes sense for today haha!

**PTSO is collecting food to donate to others for Ramadan. If you would like to, your child can bring in a non-perishable food item (bag of rice, oil, macaroni, canned food, etc.,) to place in our donation box.

**PE is finished and we will begin art this week.

**There is an all school Iftar on Wed., May 30th at 6:15 pm in the school Cafeteria. You and your family are welcome to bring a dish and share with others

Here’s a glimpse of our week (last week):
Now that we are coming close to the end of the school year we will be reviewing and continuing on from previously learned concepts. We played games and did activities to practice fast facts for addition and subtraction.

Reader’s Workshop:
This week our focus was creating book clubs! We sorted all of our folder books into 4 different topics of interest: people, animals, bugs, and world. Each day students got to pick which book club they wanted to participate in.

Writer’s Workshop:
Linking with our Books Alive unit for UOI, this week we worked really hard to write and illustrate our own original stories. We made a story map to plan out our setting, characters, and plot (beginning, middle, and end) then we put it all together in our mini books.

Our author study was Mo Willems! The kids absolutely loved reading his Pigeon books. We studied Mo’s use of speech bubbles and practiced using them ourselves. We will continue our Mo Willems study next week with his other series “Elephant and Piggie”.

Just a reminder that we will have MAP testing on May 29th and 30th.
