Thank you so much for those of you who showed up to the softball game last Tuesday. I was thrilled to see so many 1-Bu students there. The best part of the game was hearing the screams of my students on the sidelines when I made a good play!
The students had a fabulous time at Monkey Around in the Field Day last Thursday. The class moms spent a lot of time getting everything ready, and I really want to thank them for their hard work in making the day such a success for the students.
We've got a busy week planned this week as well, so I'll try to give you a quick preview of what's to come.
Poetry Exchange: On Tuesday, Ms. Wyks' third grade class will be coming down to our room to exchange poetry with us. They just finished their writing workshop poetry unit, and wanted to share their work with us. This will give us another opportunity to share our published poetry with another group of people!
Adopt-a-Cop: Officer Marc will make his final visit this school year to 1-Bu on Friday. While the students weren't too happy to see him play on the Roosevelt team during the softball game, they truly love every minute he spends in our classroom.
Reading: We were successful twice last week with reading for 30 minutes, but fell a little short on Friday after all the field day fun on Thursday. This week, we'll try again for 30 minutes. The students are extremely motivated, as they want to read for longer than my students did last year! Hopefully this reading stamina will be maintained over the summer.
Writing: This week, we're going to start working on our independent writing projects. The students will get to choose to work on either a nonfiction book, a small moment piece, or a poetry anthology, all on topics of their choices!
Math: We will continue to review and extend previously taught skills and concepts this week. We'll also be reviewing a lot of the games we learned this year.
Science: For the rest of the school year, we will be studying the rainforest. Just like the ocean, there are many layers of the rainforest. We'll focus on the layers this week.
Have a great week!
