Week of May 14
Grades are being finalized, so please check your student's grades online this week.
We will be making habitats next week, so please send a cardboard shoe box sized to school with your student by the end of the week. We will be using glue, so plastic boxes will not work.
Last week we began our project based learning unit. Our class decided to fundraise to help the endangered sea turtles. I am guiding them through the process to raise money, but they will be doing all the work. So far we have picked a product, shopped at different stores for the lowest price, and predicted how much we need to make. We will be developing price and advertising strategies next.
Reading: We will be studying media literacy and learning how to persuade people to buy our product.
Writing: We will be writing persuasive letters to the grocery stores to get the items needed for our fundraiser donated.
Math: We are using repeated addition and repeated subtraction to solve problems and apply it to our fundraiser.
Science: We will be reviewing for the district benchmark (daily grade) on Thursday and Friday.
Spelling (LAST WEEK!): giant, gym, digit, jam, badge, green, goose, gems, gentle, garden, jumps, gifts, frogs, gather, magic, gate, good
