It's hard to believe it's April...and how NICE it is! I hope eveyone has enjoyed some outdoor time! The class temperature varying quite a bit right now. When the air is running, it's freezing. When it's not running, it's very humid. I have talked to the class about layers and putting on and shedding a layer when needed.
MAP begins next week. We will test the 11th-12th and 18th-19th. We will kick off our testing week with a MAP Assembly for the students next Tuesday. There are things that you can be doing this week to help be prepared for the next two weeks:
*Make a habit of going to bed at a decent time. This means your child gets a full 8 hours of sleep and isn't rushed when waking up in the morning.
*Make a habit of eating a good, HEALTHY breakfast! As much as I like Coco Puffs, they won't provide the energy needed for the days we test. Eggs, toast, oatmeal, fresh fruit are all good choices for a high energy, low sugar breakfast!
*Good attitudes! I have talked to the students numerous times about having a good attitude daily, and especially during the test. If they think they can't, they won't.
* And being here on time! Let students get settled and feel prepared instead of rushing in. Once we start testing for the day, a student will not be allowed to come in the room until we are done with that portion for the day. So schedule all appointments and late drop offs around our testing dates.
Today we started writing our reports for our famous scientists and inventor project. We will continue to work on these in class for the next couple of weeks.
I think that is all for right now. Remember, NO SCHOOL this Friday or the following Monday (April 6th-9th).
Have a great week!
