    Teacher Notes

    Field Day is rescheduled for next Wednesday. Please remind your child to wear their field day shirt or a shirt that they could get signed on Wednesday. Rain or shine we are planning on playing fun games and activities.

     

    Yearbook orders will be passed out on June 4th.

     

    Math

    The class worked on identifying quadrilaterals this week. We will continue to learn geometry skills next week.

     

    Language Arts

    The class is now researching countries. Please ask your child which country they are researching and why. Some topics they are researching are currency, population, climate, and holidays.

     

    Science

    We finished our bug experiments. We tested the bugs in a “bug race” with an isopod and a beetle. We found that isopods prefer damp soil and darkling beetles prefer dry soil. Did you know that there are 1, 400 species of darkling beetles in North America?

    Math

    This week we worked on triangles.  The students reviewed acute and obtuse and they also learned about equilateral, isosceles, and scalene triangles.  We will continue working on geometry next week.

     

    Language Arts

    This week we read a story and learned about service dogs.  The students loved making text-to-self connections about their own experiences with dogs and whether their pets would make good service animals or not.  We also worked on writing letters to future fourth graders for next year’s students.

     

    Social Studies/Science

    This week we finished reading about the southwest region of the United States. We will be testing on the states and capitals next week.  We also observed isopods and darkling beetles.
