Thank you to all of you for a wonderful auction this year. Thank you to Emilio and Jessica for organizing our amazing art project. It was the talk of the auction. Thank you for your time gathering pictures and for sending them to the team. It was a beautiful project and the children were very proud of it.
Tomorrow is May 1st- I can hardly believe we only have 5 weeks left in this wonderful school year. It is going to go very quickly and I will do my best to keep you up to date with any schedule changes and upcoming special events.
During the next 5 weeks, the children will complete a Geography project for Social Studies, memorize the 50 States, complete a book unit on Charlotte’s Web, publish stories in Writer’s Workshop, and compete our Math unit on Time and Measurement. Yes, we will be busy.
In addition to our regular curriculum, next week we will take our Spring MAP tests. I am really excited for this opportunity for the children to see just how much they have learned and how much they have grown this year. We will have a light homework load next week to ensure the children have plenty of rest and play after school so they are ready to focus/put in the effort it takes on MAP to do their very best. I will also be revisiting our Growth Mindset lessons and reviewing successful test-taking strategies. Our test schedule is as follows:
Monday, May 7th- 8:30-10:00
Tuesday, May 8th- 8:30-10:00
Thursday, May 10th- 8:30-10:00
