Sounds impossible, but this week your children will have no tests! 🙂 The state tests have concluded, we’re starting a new unit in Math, and we’re in the middle of our Reading unit. Therefore…no tests for once!
This week the kids will learn about a few astronauts this week, as we study biographies and outer space. We’ll discuss problems and solutions, rereading, root words and how goal setting can help us achieve more. There will be a spelling list coming home Tuesday. So, I guess they have one test this week. 🙂
In Math, we’ll start learning about different kinds of measurement. We’ll explore customary and metric measurement when it comes to volume and mass. In my Math class, I’m anticipating homework on the following nights.
Lastly, our big field trip to Memorial Stadium is coming up on May 1st. The field trip note will be coming home Tuesday evening (if it arrives from the print shop in time!). Please read it over, and let us know if you are planning on joining us on the trip. If you are, you must sign up as a “Level III” field trip volunteer. The link is provided in the letter, which is also posted on this web page under “events.” As I understand it, registration is good for three years. So, if you’ve done this recently, you should be good to go! Don’t worry, you won’t have any duties on the trip, it’s just for liability and safety reasons.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
