This week we will be looking forward to...
Tuesday- Class Photo Day as well as a band concert during the am.
Thursday- School Track Meet- although our primary students will not be participating in any events, the school will be alive with excitement. Students love to bring a couple of dollars for concession treats
Guest Author study- Jan Andrews will be here in the morning to talk to our primary classes.
Language Arts- We have finished our poetry unit. Our publishing will be coming home this weekend. We will now begin looking at letter writing. Students will be able to write a letter to a loved one. I will be asking students to bring in an addressed/stamped envelope for the letter we write. Students often enjoy writing to grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins...
Reading- we have been working on our comprehension skills with reading fables. Students are enjoying learning the different morals in each story.
Math- Our current unit in Math is Time- I plan to spend only one more week on this concept as we have been working on it indirectly all year during calendar time. Next week we will begin a mini unit on Fractions.
Socials/Science- We will continue our unit with the West Coast communities and begin a more focused look at the Pacific Temperate Rainforests. Our science lessons will be finishing up clouds this week and we will begin looking at the forests' soils and seeds.
Health and Career- we have been learning about Safety with Hazardous Products. This week we will begin learning about Safety with first aid.
Our artist of the week will soon be Bedrich Smetana- this is a Czech composer that wrote a beautiful piece of music titled Ma Vlast (My Country). One of the pieces in this cycle is The Moldau based on the journey of the river. It is beautiful piece that goes with our water/rain theme for Spring.
