I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!
Last week, we had the honor of having an author come to visit us! K.E. Rocha, author of the Secrets of Bearhaven series, came to visit and talk with us about her book series and what it is like to be an author. The kids got to ask questions and were very inspired about both reading and writing after the visit.
Also, in science last week the students used the IPads to research our Scientist of the Month, Jane Goodall. The students enjoyed researching and writing about a real-life scientist!
Language Arts: On Wednesday there is a quiz on nouns. The quiz will cover common and proper nouns and singular and plural nouns. We will be finishing our noun unit this week. There will be a Unit 2 test next Thursday, the 20th. This week we will also be working on how to set-up expository and persuasive writing assignments.
Science-We have begun our unit on the human body, by learning about cells. This week we will start studying our first system, the nervous system.
Spelling-We are on Unit 7 this week, and we will have a test on Friday.
Have a great week!
