Week of May 2 - 6, 2016

Here’s a peek at next week:

Reading: Since we will begin spending half of each day with our Project Based Learning Classes next week, our schedule will change.  We will have a little time for reviewing reading/language arts skills from this school year.  Our recess, activity, and lunch  time will be moved up due to the altered schedule.  

Writing Workshop: The students will be working on various projects during their writing time for the remainder of the school year.

1. Rock Collecting Story with Comprehension Questions
2. Math Spring Time Story Problems
3. Scholastic News: Insects that will Rock Your Summer!

Students will engage in Project-Based Learning starting on May 2nd and going through May 11th. The students will go to their chosen PBL class from 12:30-2:30. Ask your child about the unique learning experiences they engage in!

End of The Year Celebration

 We will serve lunch to the kids (pizza party) and then we will have stations set up outdoors or in each classroom for the classes to rotate around with fun activities planned at each station- one being an ice cream sundae station…what kid won't love that?!  So what we are hoping for and asking for is a donation from each family to help us to pay for the food and supplies needed to make this party successful.  If each family is willing to contribute $5-$7 towards the party, we should be able to cover the cost of every child.  Please send in your donation (we can only accept cash) in an envelope to your child's teacher labeled "End of Year Party." Thank you so much for your help and making this party great for our children!

We have snack every day. Please encourage your student to pack a snack each day. Lunch time can be a long time to wait to eat. :)
