I believe this will be our last list of spelling words for the year. The last three weeks we will review high frequency words and probably do some dictation sentences.
The Burris Young Author’s Day will be held on the morning of May 17th. PTSO is providing doughnut holes, but we need to provide apple juice for our class. We usually break into groups to share stories and discuss the writing process and parents are always welcome to participate. Please let me know if you would be willing to provide juice or work with a small group of children for about 30 minutes.
Hat Day is also scheduled for May 17. Students are asked to wear a hat to school and make a monetary donation which will benefit ARF (Animal Rescue Fund).
In Social Studies we have finished our study on maps. Students should be able to use the compass rose, map key, and find our state on a map. Children have also been introduced to the seven continents and 4 oceans. Maybe if you travel this summer you could engage your child by asking them to help read the map.
My math class will begin studying fractions and the children always enjoy making a Fraction Monster! The remainder of the year will be spent reviewing important skills. Many of our math book pages have not been completed because they don’t match common core standards very well. Please use these extra pages as practice over the summer.
