This week is a short week but we will have a new spelling unit (19). Please make sure your child is doing 2 pages of the work on Tuesday...then one page everyday after that.
In Math, we will have a short fraction quiz on Wednesday and continue on with fraction unit. In Science we are investigating the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" and learning how this is affecting us and what can we do at home to change some of our habits. Social Studies projects are looking good and most students are completed and working on their presentations...the deadline for the project is April 28th. Then we can begin setting up a schedule for the presentations.
There are two special events happening this week one is the "Jump Rope for the heart" assembly on Thursday...this is a fundraiser for the heart and stroke foundation and the whole school is participating! In our class, we will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of how to golf on Friday...should be great! In health and Career we are working on setting goals for the rest of the school year.
Library books are due on Wednesday..please check and make sure your child has their library books in their backpacks. Let's have no over due books!
Show and Tell
This month’s theme is SCIENCE. On their day, students are encouraged to bring one “mystery” science item to share. Classmates will attempt to guess what the hidden item is by asking questions. Students can bring an item (like a crystal or a wasp nest) or can bring a picture of something science related that they have research (only a few details please). TOYS ARE NOT ALLOWED. If your child is sick for his/her Show&Tell day, he/she will get to make up his/her missed day as soon as he/she returns to school. If your child forgets his/her Show&Tell day, he/she will be encouraged to share (Tell) about something as part of his turn. Children who forget will not be given the opportunity to “make up” Show&Tell.
