Weekly Update

Hello Families!

Three Weeks Left! I can't believe it! The year has just flown by!

Here's a look at our week:
In math, we will revisit fractions, especially fractions on a number line and equivalent fractions. We will not have math homework, but there are some good games on our blog that students could try at home for practice. We will have a math quiz on Thursday. In reading, we will continue our book clubs. Has your child told you which book he or she is reading? They each picked a book that interested him or her and have been reading and discussing with their book club. We will also be taking the RI (Reading Inventory computer-based reading assessment) this week to determine an updated reading lexile level. In social studies, we will wrap up our unit about Thurgood Marshall, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Cesar Chavez with an assessment on Wednesday. A study guide went home last Thursday. In writing, we will continue working on poetry and a top-secret writing project that has nothing to do with a certain holiday coming up on Sunday =) Your child will be also presenting his or her selected poem this week. I recommend having your child practice standing and presenting the poem at home. Everyone selected a poem at school if they did not already have one. If your child brought or brings their poem home, please make sure it comes back to school.

We will have a visit from the school counselor and a visit to the science lab this week.

This Thursday night is our GATOR GALA. Please join us for this wonderful event! The program begins at 6:00 in the gym and then we will move around the school for various activities. A few of our classmates are participating in open mic night at the Gator Gala. It's not too late for more to participate. Please let me know if your child would like to be added to the list. All they have to do is read their poem (same poem from the class presentation) during the open mic portion of the evening which will take place in the media center.

This Friday is FIELD DAY!!! More information will be coming home regarding what should and should not be brought to school that day. Hopefully the rain stays away!

Please remember that our last scholastic book order is due this Friday. A coupon for a free book went home last week. I have a few more coupon codes if you need another. Order online HERE. Our class code is P2Y3C.

Please let me or Mrs. Levi know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks!
