I hope you all had a relaxing Spring break. I was able to talk to each scholar about their spring break and it sounds like everyone had a wonderful week off. This week we jumped back into our routines and hit the ground running to finish the year off strong. Here is a look at what is happening next week:
Monday: May crowning ceremony at Holy Rosary at 2:00. We will be walking over to Holy Rosary about 1:45, please make sure scholars are dressed appropriately for the ever changing weather! Scholars may bring a flower to place in the crown. The flower does not have to be anything elaborate, just a simple flower from a garden or a carnation from the store.
Thursday: Thursday is an Early Release day.
Friday: No school!
Next week I will be sitting down with each scholar during ELA to conference and review their MAP test goals for Spring. During this time scholars will be working on some independent ELA activities. One of the activities will be becoming an expert on an assigned colonial trade. Scholars will be reading articles on their trades and keeping their notes organized with a graphic organizer. I will also have some Newsela articles for them to complete as well.
We will do Spelling as well next week; look for the homework packet to come home on Monday.
In Grammar we will continue working on verbs. Our main focus will be on past and future tense verbs.
In Math we will be working on 2 digit by 2 digit division problems and 3 digit by 3 digit multiplication problems. We started working on the division problems yesterday and will continue our practice on Monday. I plan on starting the multiplication on Tuesday and finishing it on Wednesday.
In Social Studies we have been cruising through Chapter 5. Next week we will look at how Wisconsin became the 30th state.
In Science we will be working on wrapping up Chapter 3 on plant and animal adaptations.
Have a great weekend everyone!
