Weekly Updates 4/8/19

This Thursday is our field trip to the Life & Science Museum in Durham. If you were one of the chosen chaperones please plan to meet us there at 10:00. We will leave school at 9:30. Please purchase an admittance ticket when you get there as we will already have ours. We will meet you in the parking area outside the box office. We will eat lunch when we get back to school. Please pack a hefty snack for your child to eat in the morning before we leave for the field trip. Please have your child wear their field trip shirt. I will bring a sign out sheet to the field trip if interested in signing your child out after. Thanks!
Spring picture info will be sent home today. Spring pictures are Thursday. We will have pictures taken after the field trip. These pictures are not used for the yearbook and for personal use only if you choose to buy them.
Here are the things we will be learning this week:
Math— We will continue learning about graphing data. This week students will start to solve problems based off of data on a bar graph or pictograph. We will create graphs after we play “Rock, Paper, Scissors…Shoot!”. Students will also start a graphing project with a group in which they have to collect data, create their own graphs, and create questions based on the data they collected. They will present these projects at the end of the week.
Social Studies- We will continue our unit on maps. We got a little behind last week so this week we will be learning how to read a map and students will complete a STEM activity where they create a large map on poster board and drive a “car” to various locations on the map using cardinal directions. We will also be learning about the continents and oceans.
Reading– This week we will continue reading standard RI 2.3. Students will be practicing writing and understanding procedural steps in a passage.
Writing– We are continuing our writing unit on opinion writing. This week students will be reviewing a movie and writing a review about it!
Tower of Books-The final tower of books is due on June 12th.  The final book tasting will be June 21st at 12:00. Mark your calendars! This will also be a final writing celebration!
