CLASS UPDATE

In Reading our class kicks off an amazing book entitled Crispin by Avi. The setting of the book is in Stromford, England in the 1300's. Crispin deals with the theme of the "diamond in the rough" and some pretty intense situations...the Plague, Feudalism, betrayal, perseverance, and much more. This week's reading strategies and skill focus will be in Predicting Outcomes and Summarizing. In this book we will also do spelling and challenging vocabulary weekly. We took our Spelling/Vocab pre-test today so they have the words and the meanings are on this page. At the top, click Spelling Vocab tab to see the words and meanings. The test will be Friday.

In Math we will be kicking off our new unit of study on Geometry

In Science we wrap up the Periodic Table Unit of Study with the test on Tuesday and we begin the Body Systems Unit. Ask your child what they have learned about Grossology!

Our class won their second class-earned party! We voted today on a Stuffed Animal and PJ Party with Pizza and Rootbeer Floats and the Jurassic Park original movie. Let me know if you would like to help out at the party with Pizza pickup, or Root Beer Floats

Finally, our big Talent Show is on Friday and we have a couple students involved: Janie, Charlotte, Coral, Elyssa and Jillian. 
At 1:15 we have the Big Spin in the Cafeteria followed by Spring Break!

Please remember to check your child's progress at iGrade.com and sign in under student with the login/pass that you created earlier this year. I would love to see more kids get on the Honor Roll in the last trimester!

When we get back from spring break we have a field trip on Tuesday, April 11th, to the Tech Museum. (This was the trip that was previously cancelled and then rescheduled)
