MAP IS OVER! The students did a great job and worked hard. I am VERY, VERY proud of their hard work!
The last 4 weeks of school will be just as busy. Here is what we will be working on this week:
Writing- We have finished reviewing writing narratives.We have a few short lessons we will review next week and then we will go ahead a work on our 4th quarter writing prompt, which will be to write another narrative.
Reading- We will be working in our reading groups and I will also begin administering the DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment) to every student.
Spelling- We took a little spelling vacation while we took the MAP. We will start back on our words for the next 3 weeks of school. We will be working on List 22.
Math- We have been learning about fractions and comparing fractions over the last week. Next week we will continue working on comparing fractions and begin learning about equivalent fractions.
Science- students will be learning about the life cycle of a plant.
This year we will be visiting the George Washington Carver Museum in Diamond, Mo on May 4th. The cost for the trip is $7. Your child should have brought home a permission slip last week. Let me know if you need another one or you can click HERE and print one off. Permission slips are due by this Wednesday, April 27th.
