 Here’s a look at what is happening in our classroom!

 Social Studies: We have just started our unit on Native Americans! Our focus will be on Northwest tribes and how location affects daily living.  Students will have the opportunity to look at artifacts and items used by Northwest tribes to hunt, build, and create everyday items. Each student will be writing a “Why Story” and create a mask to go with the story. We will invite you in to hear our stories when they are finished J

Testing: We will begin testing this week. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time, is well rested, and eats a good breakfast! This week students will complete one the English Language Arts tests. We will be using headphones during testing- I have close to a class set, but students are more than welcome to bring in their own to use.

 ABC Countdown: The end of the year is quickly approaching! To celebrate our final days together, the class will participate in a fun activity each day that represents a letter of the alphabet. The list of activities will be sent home today. Please note dates there is something students can bring to school or wear!

Book Order: Book orders coming home today will be the last for the year. Order by May 16 to stock up on some books for the summer!


Have a great week!
