I want to welcome the arrival of our newest members of our class……our chicks! After many tiring weeks of care, they finally arrived, as noisy as ever. We learned about gestation of different animals; what is made using either eggs or chickens and sized different eggs. The chicks will go back to the farm on Friday for their own special Memorial Day celebration!
Math This week we review the concepts learned throughout the year and took our last assessment!!!!! We will work on problem solving and computation for the rest of this year!
Literacy This week I spent testing the level your child has made using the Fountas and Pinnell assessment. Their achievements will be marked on their report cards. In Writers Workshop the children created fictional pieces of writing, including the important elements in a story. (ask your child what are the parts of a fiction story).
Have a great long weekend. Next week we will go on our field trip on 5/30/13. All chaperones should be here at 8:30am . All children should be dresses appropriately and have a bagged lunch, drink and snack! Please contact me if you have any questions.
