We are down to the final days of school! The kids are showing signs of excitement as they anticipate summer break and all the fun things they have planned. Today we are finishing the essay they have been working on that accompanies their social studies project. This paper will be due at the end of class. Students were given Thursday, Friday, and today to finish the paper. The library is officially closed for the school year so students will not be able to check out anymore books. This doesn't mean that they can't keep taking AR tests, so please encourage your child to find a book at home or borrow one from a teacher so they can still meet their AR goals. They have until the 25th to do this. As of last Friday, May 18th, students were to be at 87.5% of their goal. Their AR grades will be updated today and I will continue to update them as frequently as possible, with the final grade for AR going in Friday at the end of the day. The remainder of this week students will continue to build their writing skills through some creative end-of-year writing activities. I am so thankful for being able to get to know all of your students and absolutely love coming and teaching them. Please reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns! Thank you.
This week in math we are finishing up our Zoo Projects. (I have loved seeing the creativity of these students!) Presentations will starter tomorrow (Tuesday) and end on Wednesday.
Our Final Assessment will begin on Wednesday or Thursday of this week and last a few days if necessary. Students will be able to use their INBs (Journals), worksheets, calculators, and Packet Review to help them. This will be the final grade in math class! I cannot believe it’s almost over! What an honor it has been to watch everyone grow academically over this year. J
