We are already starting our second to last week of school!!!!!  The kids finished publishing their reports today.  We will start the Adobe Spark portion of the report tomorrow.

There will be a spelling test on Friday. It will be our final spelling test this year!

We had a productive day today!  I made it halfway through the class with DIBELS testing :) The kids also started a new research writing project today. I let them chose their topic, and they had to tell me their three headings by the end of the day.  We will continue to research tomorrow AND do the outline.  Next week they will take their information and put it into a picture video with voice narration!

No official homework tonight, however, kids may chose to work on IXL D.23 if needed and some wanted to work on their research.  Spelling test tomorrow!

Students got their yearbooks today.  We discussed proper handling and signing of yearbooks as well.  If you did not order a yearbook and are interested in doing so, please email

Tomorrow is the music concert!  The concert will begin at 6:30, and students should arrive by 6:15.  Fourth grade will be playing their recorders before the concert begins.  Formal spring attire for the concert :)

Tonight's homework is language arts IXL BB.3 and page 335 from the readers notebook.  Some students will also have corrections to make on their math practice page.

Thank you to those of you who sent in school school supplies today :)

Field Day is tomorrow!!!!  Students may wear spirit shirts and appropriate athletic bottoms. If your child comes to school in shorts that are too short, they will miss the activities until appropriate bottoms are brought from home. 

We were out of the classroom a lot today, as we had a make up music class this afternoon.  We still managed to get quite a bit of math done, as well as typing the comparison paragraph the kids have been working on all week.

Tomorrow is also early release!

Tonight's homework is IXL D.24- multiplication practice!  

Tomorrow is May 1- May Crowning!  The ceremony begins at 9:15 in the church.   Please bring a flower to present to Mary during the ceremony.

Friday is Field Day- appropriate attire required!

You'll see the animal report coming home today.  You've already seen the webpage your child built using this information (if they emailed it to you before break).  They did outstanding! This project took quite a bit of time and energy and their final products were very impressive!

Welcome Back!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter Break!

A few announcements:
* The Food Drive has begun!  Please bring non-perishables to the classroom all week.
* Wednesday is May Crowning at 9AM.  Please send your child in with a thornless flower to present to Mary.
* Friday is Field Day.  Students may wear spirit t-shirts and appropriate athletic shorts.  IF THE SHORTS ARE TOO SHORT (more than a few inches above the knee), THEY WILL SIT OUT OF THE ACTIVITIES UNTIL APPROPRIATE ATTIRE IS BROUGHT.
*Friday is also early release!

We got right back into the swing of things today.  We have finished the Journeys readings from the text book and are reading from a 4th grader reader.  We will have our spelling test on Friday morning.  Tonight's homework is page 341-342.

For math, students have practice 12. 8 AND corrections from our math computation practice.

We ended our day taking notes on weapons of WWII.  Our social studies lessons have been quite fun as the kids are very into the facts about the wars!

We've been working very hard on our animal reports!  The kids researched from a book and the internet.  They used notecards to organize their facts in categories.  Then they created an outline.  Next, they typed up a final copy of their report with headings and paragraphs.  They had to include one map and format the document as instructed.  To top it all off, we created a web page about the animal!  They had to include a button, a map, a picture, and a video.  We spent quite a lot of time working on this and the outcome was AMAZING! If you emailed your child's school address they were able to reply to the email with the link from Adobe Spark.

We are half way through math chapter 12 today.  The kids also read our final story in the Journeys hardcover book.  After break we will read from a special reader and read a novel as a class.

Reminder- Thursday is a half day.  Dismissal is at noon.  Please pick up your student promptly at 12!
