Learning for 5/15

Good Morning Students and Parents!
As you know, we have a few important dates coming up next week so please be sure to check Mrs. Brown's email from May 8th for specific details. Here is a list of some of the important dates:
  • May 18 - Virtual Field day
  • May 19, 20, 21 - Curbside pick up of student belongings and drop off of books, technology, etc.
  • May 21 - End of Year Class Zoom (I will send you the link that morning.)
  • May 22 - Last Day of School/Neighborhood Staff Car Parade
** I will send you an email Monday morning giving you end of year activities you can do during the week.  You will also be writing a letter to your 5th grade teacher introducing yourself.  I will send you all of that information on Monday.  Monday is virtual field day so you will not work on the letter until Tuesday, unless you want to.
**Check out Reading Google Classroom for the link to sign up for an optional end of year meeting.  

Here are your learning opportunities for today.

Language Arts:

  • Please continue working on your iReady reading diagnostic. You have until this afternoon to finish it. Remember to do the work on your own, try your best, and take breaks when you need it. (I see most of you have finished this which is wonderful!!).
  • 45 min of independent reading
  • You may also choose to go on iReady "My Path" reading since many of you are finished with the diagnostic.
  • FLIPGRID - I also added two fun new Flipgrid topics that I hope you will enjoy!
Math:
  • Your fourth grade teachers are not assigning new iReady or Math Practice Buddy this week so you can focus on your reading diagnostic.  If you would like extra math practice, you may go on "My Path" on iReady.
