This week we finished up our measurement unit, comparing lengths in customary units. We celebrated our fantastic fiction! We celebrated our growth working together with a unity party! Yesterday, report cards went out. Look for them in your student's backpack if you haven't already seen it. Thanks to all the folks who already returned the envelope!
With your student's report card, I also sent out aquarium and whale watching permission slips. Please return these slips! The total for both of these field trips is $62.00. We have scholarships available if needed. For the whale watching field trip, expect more forms!
Today, we had the opportunity to have a guest author speaker, Liz Wong, author and illustrator of Quackers.
She read us her story, talked to us and showed us her revision process, and drew some of her characters. We were so lucky! Look for a book form if you're interested in purchasing Quackers.
To keep you busy over spring break, I sent refresher forms on how to log in to Reflex, Epic and Reading Horizons. Your students should be familiar with these programs. The directions can help you help them if necessary.
Lastly, enjoy your spring breaks and see you in a week!
