Happy Monday! I can't believe that we getting to the end of the year! I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day weekend!
Language Arts-We will continue working on pronouns in grammar. This week we will be discussing possessive pronouns and contractions with pronouns. Our last grammar unit test is scheduled for Friday, May 24th.
Science-We will continue our study of the solar system. This week we will finish up learning about the outer planets! After this, we will have completed our journey through the solar system! Our solar system test will be on Thursday, May 23rd. We have also been working with an article from our Super Science magazine entitled "Destination: Mars." We will be using this article to help us create our own "Mission to Mars" Journals, where the students will be writing as if they are one of the astronauts chosen to be the first humans on Mars.
Spelling-We are on Unit 33 this week, and our test will be on Friday.
Have a wonderful week!
*Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help build and launch our rockets! We had so many volunteers to help launch, and I wish we could use everyone. Please know that even if you weren't picked to help at the launch, you can still come to the launch! Everyone is welcome to come to the park and watch the launches! We do still have a couple of spots available to help build rockets on the 21st, so if you are interested in helping let me know!
**We had a great time reviewing for our figurative language test last week by doing a "gallery walk." The kids had a great time working with their groups and moving around the room to identify different types of figurative language. Here are some pictures!
