Have a great summer!

It was a fantastic year in 4B, and I hope all students have a wonderful summer break - you deserve it! I will miss having you all in my class next year, but I know you will love fifth grade, especially if you read and write often this summer to stay sharp!

Notes for Friday, June 8th (1:40pm Release)

We had a fantastic field day today, and it's very hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day! Students will need their Chromebooks and backpacks tomorrow.

*** Students may leave their Chromebooks at school for the summer if they please, but it assumed that students will take their Chromebooks home.

No homework - Field Day Tomorrow!

However, students still need to bring their Chromebooks and backpacks as usual.

On Friday, we will be singing the School Song. If anyone needs to practice...

And for anyone interested, here is the video I shared with the class of my proposal.

Stay Sharp over the Summer!

On my blog, I have posted two new sites:

1) myON (reading site): Licenses for the site have been purchased by the district for students to use over the summer. There are a variety of texts to choose from, and students seemed to enjoy using it today!

2) OkGo Sandbox (Math/STEAM activities): OkGo is a band whose music videos incorporate very cool techniques, only made possible through math! They now offer hands-on activities for students, and would be great activites for the summer!

** There are a limited number of yearbooks available in the office for $25.
** Tomorrow is Xchange Autographs Day!

No more homework for the year!!!

However, students must bring their Chromebooks and backpacks each day, as we will be working in class and taking supplies home.

* Student Math Workbooks (Student Book, Home Connection, Number Corner) were sent home today and would be excellent to use for summer practice.

* Report Cards and Spring MAP Scores were sent home Friday. The section of the report cards regarding Specials was not included and will be sent separately.
* Students who re-took a MAP test will see their ORIGINAL score on the print out, but their re-take score has been recorded and is in the system. It takes some time to process, and doesn't appear on the initial reports (the printouts you received), so please do not be alarmed.
* Yearbooks were also sent home Friday.
