Next week, the Healthy snack host is Chelsea.

News of the week:

NWEA testing has begun. We are 2 tests down and 1 to go. Next week, we will complete our Language NWEA. 

We finished our class book, Kneeknock Rise. Our new class book is, Sing Down the Moon, by Scott O'Dell. This books goes great with our Social Studies work of early colonization and Native American cultures. 

Speaking of Social Studies, the students completed "Text Feature" articles about the Inca and Aztec cultures. Their work included a subheading, short summary, a caption with a descriptive sentence, a map and a side bar. 

Today, the 4/5 wing, students and teachers, got together to discuss playground rules. There have been some recent instances of bad behavior, aggressiveness, and disrespect. We thought it was important to meet as a wing to talk about a few of the issues and discuss the expectations of fun and safe playground use. We want to applaud the positive behavior and understand the consequences for the negative behavior. 

If anyone is interested in volunteering in our classroom, please get in touch. We need adults to help with leading small groups or 1:1; for basic fact practice, reading groups, math helpers, or even being a presenter to our class about your job, education or hobby. 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Conrad
