*** If you read this before 11 AM on Monday, there has been a change. I WILL NOT be at a training Monday and Tuesday. So I’m at Ray. Yay!
Our Research Projects will now be due on Friday the 7th. I chose the topic of States because I wanted the students to look up information in a variety of sources. If they take notes and write from those, the report will be in their own words. I thank parents for help with the reading.
Parents – there is a Curriculum Night for each grade level this week. Remember a notice in the HW folder? The purpose of this event is to prepare you and your child to start next school year already clear on the expectations. It will be very informative.
We continue to work on all academic subjects. It is fun to hit the basics and review as well as try new things. We’re a little bit all over the place in MATH. We’re trying to get better at MENTAL Computing. It is great to see the students feeling like they can “do” things they didn’t know they could do. We want to end the school year with the best grades possible and celebrate our accomplishments.
The book we are reading aloud is The Music of the Dolphins by Karen Hesse.
The librarian in me wants to provide a list of recommended reading for the summer – especially the books on CD at the Library.
As always, thanks for your support.
