 April 3rd


After a tired start after Easter celebrations we are back in the swing this week.  We had 5th grade buddies today and the kids made Statue of Liberty crowns and torches.

This week this children will be doing a lot of writing; I have upped Writer's Workshop to 2 days a week so they can have as many stories as possible to choose from for author day.  They are doing a great job!

We completed the Wonders Unit 6 assessment and the children did pretty well.  Wed we will complete Unit 4 math Expressions assessment.  The children have become terrific at adding up to ten!  Many can use more practice with subtraction and we will continue this over the next couple of months.
