We are currently writing biographies.  The children have chosen a novel to read about a person's life.  They are taking Cornell notes as they read, and then they'll write a biography using the information they've gathered.   


States and Capitals

The children will be given the challenge of learning all 50 states and their capitals.  The children that learn them will get to attend a special party and be recognized at the end-of-the-year awards assembly.   We have a total of ten students that have passed their states and capitals test.  Congratulations!

Our field trip this week was awesome!  The children were engaged in their tasks and took them seriously.  They worked together fantastically to accomplish the Mission to Mars!


We will begin caaspp testing on Tuesday.  Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and arrives at school on time.  These three things can help your child be successful.  I will not be assigning homework on the evenings before testing.       




This week we'll finish up chapter 9 "Algebra:  Patterns and Graphing".  We'll also be reviewing the math concepts we've learned this year and continuing with the geometry unit.   





This week we'll continue reading Blood on the River.  We've read chapters 1-20, and we'll be reading chapters 21-25 this week.  The children are thoroughly enjoying this novel about the building of Jamestown in Virginia.
