We’re almost done with the elementary school finish line! Soon your loves will be middle schoolers – a time of great change. But let’s hope to finish the fifth grade strong!
- No school Monday, May 27
- Boat trip permission slips have been extended to Tuesday. This PBIS trip will be great for all kids. Parents are welcome to come for $10, however, they must be able to drive.
- NWEA is still on full swing! There has been great growth in Math and Reading in the class
- DRA reading test is almost done! Everyone has got up a level, some have gone up 2! I am impressed by this class.
I am being summoned by a waking up toddler! I hope everyone else has a great long weekend!
This will be short.
This week is going to be BUSY. We are almost all done with DRA reading tests, and will begin our spring NWEA starting Monday. So please make sure everyone comes to school on time and ready!
No school Friday, May 24.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
Happy Mother’s Day! And a late Ramadan Kareem!
- Math mid-module assessment later this week. We will spend time reviewing and practicing.
- There is no more fruit and vegetable snacks anymore, so please make sure your child has a snack.
- If your child is fasting, please make sure they wake up early enough to get some hydration. The weather is going to heat up throughout the week, and students are still playing gym and during recess.
We grew these butterflies from larva and released them last week. Hopefully they have found a new home and are happy.
Our lesson from Dearborn Shine about nutrition.
Good evening! Happy May! Hopefully this will mean more sunshine and outdoor recess.
We begin our DRA reading assessment on Monday. These are one-on-one and the results are as soon as I finish checking them. Please keep encouraging, pushing, supporting, and challenging them.
We practiced dividing fractions with counters and straws.
We started some Ramadan decorating and we had a nail salon going for our PBIS celebration.
Finally! We are done with our M-Step! A few students may have to spend some time finishing up their individual tests, but for the most part we are done testing as a whole class…until the end of year NWEA. But for now we are getting back into the swing of things and homework and classwork will be regularly assigned.
Action day. We worked hard Friday. First M-Step and then some gardening. We took a much needed break to some popcorn and snacks.
I hope everyone had an awesome 3 day weekend! I know I did. I spent so much time in the sun Sunday afternoon, I have a slight tan.
- M-Step back at full force this week. Please make sure students are at school on time, have had a FULL night’s of restful sleep, and eaten a healthy breakfast (or come early for school’s breakfast). Please provide healthy snacks.
Monday – Finish reading
Tuesday & Wednesday – Math
Thursday – Social Studies
Friday – Make-up tests
- Wednesday is a late start
- Friday is Shine Day, so we will be doing some planting
Have a great rest of your Sunday!
Playing a game of math review basketball.
We needed some down time after M-Step, so we had 10 minutes to create something that represented “HUNGRY”. It seems to be this year’s reoccurring theme.
I cannot remember why I took these pictures, but here we are using chromebooks.
We have a challenging 2 weeks coming up! M-Step! We start testing on Tuesday and will continue until Thursday. The following week we will do the same and Friday will be for make ups.
Tuesday & Wednesday – Reading
Thursday – Science
Please make sure students are at school on time, have had a FULL night’s of restful sleep, and eaten a healthy breakfast (or come early for school’s breakfast). Please provide healthy snacks. I anticipate a lot of growth and cannot wait to see how much they have learned this year.
There is no school Friday, April 19.
We are doing a lot of review and catch up this week.
Staff vs. Student Volleyball Game – Great job Mohammed, Bilal, and Youssef!
Idioms practice – Students thought the saying was “cake of my eyes” (it’s apple of my eyes). We may need a little more practice 🙂
