Welcome. On this page I will be sharing with you comments and thoughts about the curriculum and keeping you up to date on current projects and upcoming events as we move through the school year.
26 April 2017
In LANGUAGE ARTS this week we are continuing with our Literature Circles (next assignment due Friday, April 28). We are also working on learning our stories. The deadline for telling our stories in class is Tuesday, May 9. In SCIENCE we have concluded our unit on Global Warming. Our Global Conference went very well. I was especially impressed with the insights expressed afterwards about how difficult and challenging they found the problem-solving process to be given so many different competing interests. In SOCIAL STUDIES we are continuing with our chapter assignments (“Daoism/Buddhism” due next Monday, May 1) and our Chinese Historic Site project (due Tuesday, May 9).
State testing continues this week as we wrap up the Language Arts sections of the assessments on Thursday (April 27). The Math sections are scheduled for Tuesday (May 2) and Wednesday (May 3) of next week. Please make every effort to have your child arrive at school on time and well rested on those days.
We will be off on a field trip to the Green Music Center next Thursday (May 4). If you haven’t already done so, please sign and return the field trip permission form that went home last week ASAP.
