News You Can Use 6-10-19 Final edition!

As our year comes to a close, I would like to say  how proud I am of all the hard work  the children exhibit each and every day.  I am thankful to all of you for your continued support, both in and out of the classroom.  It takes time and commitment to raise great children, both academically and emotionally.  These children are off to a great start at Lindbergh and I am excited for what the future holds for them.  Please keep reading and writing over the summer.  I would like to see the children continue to grow, and that takes constant practice.  Continue to work on math skills like adding and subtracting as well.  The Eureka math site is available for guidance as needed.  Use all of your fun family experiences to ask questions and create an environment of wonder.  Below you will find some important notes about events coming up this week.  Thank you again for a great school year!  I hope to see you on Friday morning!

Please join the PTA tomorrow, June 11th, immediately after school to celebrate our amazing  staff members, Mrs. Lorber, Mrs. Bush, and Miss Kim, who will be retiring this school year. We will have some delicious cake and cupcakes donated by parents, Emily Blumenstein and Stacey Krol! We will be located on the black top behind the school, where the upper Elementary dismisses. See you there!

Last day of School: Friday, dismissal 11:45.  Please do not send any backpacks, lunch boxes, or snacks that day.  We will have a treat here.  Please remember if you have medication in the office you will need to pick it up on the last day.  I will be sending home all materials as the week progresses and they can remain at home.  If you have any last books, reading bags, materials, please send them back as soon as possible.  RAZ kids will be available for the summer.  I will be raising their letter level a few letters higher than the children are now to allow for growth.  Please have them read in order and begin answering the questions for comprehension practice.

Our end of the year celebration will be the last day of school, Friday, June 14th at 10:45.  We will be having an ice cream party and send off.  All parents are welcome to attend.  I will be passing out report cards and a special surprise you will want to see!  We will be in need of items for this event as well.  Please respond here if you are able to bring these in.  Thank you so much for helping out.  We could not do this without you!

Language Arts

Last week we began an author study of Eric Carle.  We used his books to discuss illustrations, text to text connections, and author’s purpose.  We completed an informational writing assignment on the needs of a plant for both science and writing.  This will go in their folder for their next year’s teacher.  We also completed the NWEA testing in both Math and Reading.  These results will come home in your child’s report card on the last day of school.  Remember to be practicing long and short vowel word work in isolation by giving your child words to read out of the context of books is a good practice.  Any words mixed that are cvc; consonant, vowel, consonant like bat and cvce; words with a silent e like cave are good to practice.  Fluency is improved when words come naturally.

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we are continuing in Module 5 with practice being able to break apart teen numbers into 10 and some more, as well as reading and writing teen numbers.  Continue to work on counting forward and back from any number.  Even though the unit with adding and subtracting to 10 is over, fluency may not be there yet.  Our end of the year goal is fluency to 5; which means seeing 3+2 and saying 5 within a few seconds, and solving addition and subtraction number stories to 10.  Lots of practice is needed to master this skill regularly. We will be skipping a few math lessons to get through to the necessary information to complete the module.  The children can continue to do all the pages as extra proactive in their homework book.

In Science we completed our  sun and water plant experiment, looking at how water and sun effects plants.  We recorded data on our plants.  We also checked and recorded information in our journal about our  growing beans in bags in the window.    We have noticed the been(seed) opening and the seedling coming out to grow.  In Social Studies we discussed class issues and a list of possible issues we could help kids out with in our school.
