Upcoming events in Room 15 include the 750 Club Doughnut Fest tomorrow (Monday) at lunch time, an Adopt-a-Street Clean-up of Hopkins Street on Wednesday, May 13th (chaperones desperately needed), our field trip to the Hanley Farm Heritage Fair on Tuesday, May 19th (a few chaperones helpful), and our Table Rock Hike with our Book Buddies on Friday, May 22nd (the more the merrier). There’s no school on Monday, May 25th for Memorial Day, and this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Yes, it’s true, I told the kids the best gift they can give is to stay home…but I was just kidding. Really.
In class we’re continuing our back-and-forth study of fractions and geometry, and this week I’ll be sending home new plays for them to practice. All homework reading is from a book of choice. In history we’ve finally made it to the 1800’s and content around western expansion (Lewis & Clark, etc.). We’ll be wrapping up our mealworm science unit and moving on to the last big project of the year: Endangered Species research and expository writing. Stay tuned. Here’s the math homework for this week: Monday, May 4th; Tuesday, May 5th; Wednesday, May 6th; Thursday, May 7th. Students can make use of the student-created tutorial videos when completing their homework.
