  • Last week the students completed the CST testing.  Thanks to everyone for supporting your children with this State Assessment. Your students seemed relaxed and confident that they did the best that they could.  We could ask for nothing more.
    • There are a few that still need to complete some of their tests.  I have contacted the families who do still need another day or two.  Make-up test days are this coming Monday and Wednesday with me at the annex at Fall Creek.
  • The students are coming along with the YEARBOOK, choosing and editing their photos, and importing their paragraphs of themselves and about our yearly events.  
Now that testing is done, our class time will return to normal.
  • TUESDAY, May 7.  We will continue with our PRESENTATIONS:  Ruby, Chloe, Jimmy and Jon are signed up to present.  If they are not ready, please email me so we can reschedule.
    • WRITING:  I will move forward with the next phase of our argumentative writing, talking about refining the first draft.  I will share examples and we'll be discussing Word Choice and Sentence Fluency.  Their next phase will be rewriting their drafts looking at the these two writing traits
      • HOW YOU CAN HELP:  If you have them share their drafts with me through Google Docs, I can review them before Tuesday and be more ready to take each student to their next step.  OR, please review their draft with them and help them determine their next steps in a revision.
    • SCIENCE:  Wade will continue with his last unit with them on Oceanography.
REMEMBER: NO CLASS ON:
  • THURSDAY MAY 9, AS WE WILL BE LEAVING BRIGHT AND EARLY  FRIDAY MORNING.
  • TUESDAY, MAY 14, AS WE WILL BE RETURNING IN THE EVENING OF MONDAY, MAY 13.

CLASS WILL RESUME THURSDAY, MAY 16, with more presentations, First Aid / CPR, and work on our Yearbook.


PLEASE LOOK FOR ANOTHER EMAIL WITH THE FINAL UPDATE ABOUT OUR CAMPING TRIP.
