Looking back, it is amazing how quickly the school year has flown by! This week marks our last full week of school. It certainly has become quite warm in the classrooms! Must be all of the brain sweat!
Students have completed their ELA, Math and Science M-STEP assessments! I know that they all tried their very best, and I am proud of the effort they put forth.
This week has been a lot of wrap up. In Math we have finished up our math units and are spending our time reviewing the skills that we learned this year and getting ready for 5th grade math.
In Reading Workshop students are continuing to work on honing their reading comprehension skills. We have been doing lessons from the book Notice and Note as well as incorporating Interactive Read Aloud lessons. Ask your child about our lesson on Words of the Wiser.
Students have been working on their ABCs of… books in Writing Workshop. Next week we will be saving our created books in to our Google Drive accounts so that students will be able to access them from home. Students will also have an opportunity to save photos and videos to drive as well. The access Google Drive with their student email account and email password. All students have this information glued in their BLACK folder which will come home the last week of school.
In Social Studies we are finishing up our Government Unit. We learned about the Constitution of the United States, how it came to be. We focused on the meaning of the Preamble and we will be exploring the Bill of Rights next week.
