Welcome back! I hope everyone had a restful spring break and were able to enjoy the weather yesterday. Please find some pictures posted from the week before we left. Town halls have resumed on Fridays. Often the younger grades will be given extra recess outside if they are not in the auditorium. The walk-a-thon will be Friday, May 17th. You can register on the Ray website.
What is happening in class this week…
Reading Workshop: We will continue reading in our series book clubs and pay extra special attention to authors craft.
Writing Workshop: We will be writing poetry all week and incorporating figurative language. We will be using Gwendolyn Brooks book of poetry, Bronzeville, as a mentor text. Students will get new words this week!
Math: We will begin our final unit of the year. Today we will be creating and naming equal parts and for the rest of the week studying fractions.
Science/Social Studies: Our insects arrived! We will be studying how they grow and adapt to our environment… We will be watering and weeding our garden and at some point, make volcanos.
