We kicked off May with a fun week! The students are enjoying our bonus activities as we count down our school year. Please refer to the purple calendar sent home to plan ahead.
Students brought home a school supply kit form Thursday for next year. There is also a separate order form for a 5th grade planner. This planner will only be available through this order and is $5. The kit that is offered is created by the 5th grade teachers and specific to what your child will need. It is one stop shopping and delivered to your child's classroom before school starts! Deadline for online orders is June 5th.

A Glance at This Week...
We worked on number patterns and input/output tables.
Social Studies/Science
We wrapped up our last Social Studies lessons and sent home our notebooks. We started our next Science Unit: Electricity. The students were very excited to switch back to Science.
Language Arts: In Reading Workshop, discussed the difference between a biography, memoir, and personal narrative. We enjoyed reading some of these using great picture books and making inferences about these individual's lives. We continued meeting in our book club books this week and also started our new read aloud: SLACKER! In word study we focused on figurative language and poetic devices. In writing workshop we spent time peer editing and sharing our writing with friends.
A Look Ahead...
