First of all, I would like to wish a Ramadan Kareem to all of you celebrating Ramadan!
This week has really flown by and I can hardly believe that we have only 22 days of school left. I am planning to squeeze in as much learning as possible so these next few weeks will be full and very busy.
Next week we will be MAP testing on Wednesday and Friday morning and will have some make-up time the following week as well if needed.
In Maths we will be reviewing and reinforcing all of the major concepts that we have learned this year through games, small group instruction and using Mathletics and other online activities. Next week the focus will be on number and place value so we will review counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 as well practicing reading, writing and comparing numbers correctly.
In Daily 5 and Unit students will be focusing on using the 6-Traits of Writing to write a report or story about a mode or system of transportation. Our key concept focus for this week will be Function. Students will inquire into how different systems of transportation work and what their purpose is in a community.
We are also going on a fabulous field trip to see a play called ADMIRABLE P’TIT MOUK at Le Studio des Arts Vivants on Friday morning! Details are included in the permission slip which will be sent home today.
