What are we learning about?
Reading- We are finishing up literature circles. Each student in the group has a role- predictor, summarizer, connector etc. In circles they discuss a book or a chapter they are reading -with very little help from the teacher.
Phonics/ Grammar- We are reviewing all phonics charts.
Math– Keep practicing addition and subtraction facts to 20.
Social Studies/Science- Students are learning about the Engineering Design Cycle. We will be constructing straw bridges this week in the Maker Space Lab. Please see your child’s teacher about straw donations. Flexible and straight unwrapped straws are needed.
Writing- Students are writing friendly letters and summaries
The Chalk Walk is May 30th. Please don’t forget to send in the blue tape and/or baby wipes if you signed up to donate them.
Parents please take the very important Hanover survey to let us know how we are doing. Surveys are due by May 25th.
