Happy April! I hope you all enjoyed some quality time with your child, whether you traveled or not, over spring break. Our class seemed eager to return and get back into the swing of things. Hopefully, everyone can get outside this weekend to experience the wonderful weather!
Your child’s Minnesota Amazing Race destination project is due Monday, April 24th. You can send in the video clip in on a flash drive, or email it to me (if it’s not too large of a file). Let me know if you have any questions. I will be compiling all the videos into one class movie. We will have a “movie release” party in May (date TBA).
Your child should have brought home the 3rd (and final) WordMasters list before spring break. Our last challenge “meet” will take place on Monday, May 1st. There is a link to the Quizlet site on our class blog (on the right hand side, under the Language Arts section). Your children have enjoyed practicing the words using that fun site. As a reminder, words from the first two lists may appear on this last test, so children should still study those words, too.
Curriculum highlights: We are multiplying with greater numbers now! Ask your child how to solve the problem 4x60 (or something similar). Next week, we will practice multiplying larger numbers with and without regrouping (i.e. 37x6).
We are busy researching our Minnesota owl. This research will then allow us to practice our paragraph writing. The children will determine how they want to present their research. Stay tuned for more details!
