Finally some weather that is somewhat like spring! This means three things- our schedules are getting busier, our allergies are becoming an issue, and spring fever is on its way! I am asking for donations of hand sanitizer and soft tissues to help us through the allergy season. Due to the increase in sneeze related disinfecting our hand sanitizer supplies are dwindling and our poor noses would greatly appreciate softer tissues than our nurse supplies! I’ll even toss in extra credit points on your child’s lowest test grade to sweeten the deal! This week’s learning objectives are listed below! Also please check our our upcoming events on the Important Dates page to the right. Check out our new laptops! Woo Hoo!
Math: This week we are reviewing skills to prepare for the next RAC test. We will be focusing on converting fractions to decimals, line plots, multiplying fractions by a whole number, and solving word problems.
Language Arts: We are reading “Encantado” this week, which is a non fiction story about the Amazon River Dolphin. We will be researching both Amazon River Dolphins and Bottle Nose Dolphins and writing a compare and contrast essay. The prezi below is one that we will be using to introduce this essay format.
Science: We are learning about plants. We have studied their life cyles, photosyntheis, and parts. We will be reviewing this week along with charting the progress of the seedlings we planted last week. We were surprised to see seedlings when we came in on Monday!
The Prezi below will help to review for our Plant quiz on Friday!
