We only have four school days this week, but they will be busy! There is no school for the students on Friday, May 12th.
Language Arts-We will finish our grammar unit this week. We will review types of pronouns and learn about homophones and homographs. We will have a unit test next Friday, the 19th. We will also be finishing up our study of figurative language. This week we will discuss personification and hyperbole. We will then use what we have learned about figurative language to write our own original poems. We will have a test on figurative language next Wednesday, May 17th.
Science-We have begun our study of the solar system! We will be discussing Mercury, Venus, and Earth this week. On Tuesday we have a quiz on our solar system vocabulary and the planets in order.
Spelling-We are on Unit 32 this week, and we will have a test on Thursday. The unit is on possessives. It is important that students study how the words are used in sentences, so they know whether the possessives are singular or plural.
Rocket Day volunteer forms went home last week. If you would like to help build or launch, please return the volunteer form by this Wednesday. We will then send a note home next week to those who will be helping us. Thanks so much!
Have a terrific week and Mother's Day weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all of our wonderful moms!
