Week of March 5th-9th!
What a beautiful Friday it was for Run the Creek and Creekfest! Everyone had a great time, and ran their hearts out. Thank you for all your support with this fun event.
Monday we will take our Spring Reading Benchmark. It will take a lot of stamina and focus, but the students are ready to show what they know. We will go over their results on Tuesday. I am not able to send the test home, but I will send home their results on Wednesday. It will be a daily grade.
Wednesday through Friday of next week, the students will be shopping for their book club book that they will be reading after Spring Break. I am so excited that we will be teaming up as an entire grade level to participate in a true book club meeting once a week. Some of the reading and assignments will be completed at home, but the majority will be done in class. We will have Google Classrooms set up for their specific books so they can interact with the other classes, and work together on projects. More info to come!
Students are finishing up their Figurative Language Slideshows. I know many are excited to present their favorite slides to the class!
We will continue practicing map skills this week.
No spelling or vocabulary as we are reviewing. We will start back up after Spring Break. Last week we focused on the spelling rules for adding -ing, -ed, and s to the end of a word. This week we will continue those rules and focus on homophones that are commonly confused. Additionally, we will practice the correct way to use superlatives as I am noticing errors in their writing and speaking. This has been a great time to brush up on the spelling and grammar rules that they have been taught from K-3, and just need to consistently practice.
No homework due to testing.
Have an amazing weekend!!
