Just as a reminder…
This is the last week for students to check out books. All library books are due back by Friday, May 17. When inventory is finished, I will send reminder notes home with students who have missing books.
As the school year winds down, we are completing projects.
PreK students continue with the Daddy Goose unit. This week the students heard “Humpty Dumpty.”
Kindergarten students started the week with a review of Safety on the School Bus. They also spent time exploring their favorite pages on World Book Early World of Learning. On Thursday, we continued our Beatrix Potter unit with a very long story, “The Tailor of Gloucester.” We talked about how this story is similar to The Elves and the Shoemaker.
1st Grade students also continued their Beatrix Potter unit, listening to “The Story of Miss Moppet.”
2nd Grade students listened to the next chapter of Chocolate Fever. Poor Henry had to face a group of bullies in a school yard. Luckily, his quick wit saved him from any danger.
3rd Grade students listened to the conclusion of “The King’s Daughter Cries for the Moon.” They spent time describing characters and predicting what would happen by the end of the story.
4th Grade students presented their oral reports regarding states. Some students found that there were corrections they need to make for things like missing words, incomplete sentences, etc. We will work on corrections and final print outs between now and the end of the school year.
5th Grade students presented their oral reports about countries. They will finish the year by creating group PowerPoint presentations.
