The bonus words for this week are:

In Language Arts this week we are writing the good copies of our poems and making a poetry book. We are also starting literature circles, which is like novel studies but in groups of 5. This Friday afternoon we are having our Poetry Cafe, and would appreciate donations of food or drink to share, as we celebrate all our hard work this month. Students will be performing a poem they’ve memorized and one they’ve written.

In Math we are continuing to work on measurement, but are moving on to perimeter and area of rectangles.

In Science we are continuing to learn about the respiratory system, which we may finish this week.

In Social Studies we are continuing to learn about the continents and oceans and other landforms.

In Bible we are finishing up learning about Abraham’s life and reviewing, then writing a test to see what we’ve learned.

Reminder that we are going to the Science Center next week and a few more permission slips still need to come back for that.

These are the bonus words for everyone:

This week we are finishing up learning how to calculate elapsed time in Math.

In Science, we have a test on the circulatory system on Wednesday, which the students have a study guide for (this went home Friday). Then we will be learning about the respiratory system. We have a field trip to the Science Center in Vernon planned for May 2, and will be focusing on 3 body systems when we go there. The field trip permission slip will be sent home today.

In Language Arts we are continuing to work on Poetry and are finishing up so we can start making our Poetry books.

In Social Studies we are starting to learn about the 7 continents and 5 oceans.

In Bible we are continuing to learn about Abraham.

We also have Peer Mentoring throughout the week and a fun Friday afternoon planned.

Missed School: reminder that if your child is sick and missing school they will need to catch-up on missed work. Missed work is left at their desk, and it is their responsibility to take it home and complete it. If they need clarification they need to ask the teacher, and if they need help, they can ask to stay in at a recess and the teacher will help them. If you know your child will be sick for a few days, feel free to drop by or email to pick up the missed work so they can work on it at home before they come back.

Reminders for the week:

Monday: Field Trip form coming home

Wednesday: circulatory system test, library

Thursday: Idiom Dress-up Day – all students dress up as idioms and be prepared to explain what yours means!

Friday: BMV due, spelling test, fun afternoon, wear as many shirts as possible school dress-up theme

Saturday: Community Garage Sale, Kidzone, Car Wash, BBQ, and more at the school from 8am-3pm. All proceeds go to grad. Should be a lot of fun!
