What a wonderful Field Day we had today! Thank you so much to Mr. and Mrs. Ponder for volunteering to run our Field Day stations! Thank you to Mrs. Jones for securing our volunteers and helping out! Our girls AND boys won the 4th grade Tug-of-War tournament!
Class Dojo- I send reminders through Class Dojo- it would be helpful to get notifications from the app. The end of the year is always busy and this tool helps a lot with sharing!
25 Book Challenge- The final day to turn in organizers is next MONDAY, May 14th. I’ll be checking every day or two to make sure students know where they are. May 17th will be the large after-school celebration for students who’ve met the challenge with all 25 Books and their genres. The 9 week celebration (for all students who got 6 stickers) will be Friday, May 18th right after lunch. This celebration will be for Coke/Root Beer/Fanta floats and Extreme Recess (45 minutes 😉 )
Math- Students are finishing their in-class Geometry projects. Students were given a choice board and had to chose enough projects to total $10. Projects were “weighted” with more complicated ones being worth more money. We then will work on Fraction projects.
Reading – We are continuing to read the book The One and Only Ivan together. The Project Choice sheet was sent home Friday. Students need to chose one of the challenges to complete by this Friday. These should mostly be done at home, but there may be some school time here or there to work on them. It’s a good idea to keep that work in the “Return to School” side of the red folder.
Social Studies- The Constitution and Westward Expansion- We will read the book Dandelions to help us understand the lives, adventure, and struggles of families who moved out west.
Science- Space and Earth Science- There will be a moon phase quiz on Wednesday. Students have the phases and pictures of them in the packet that we began last week.
