June 4- Last day of school- dismiss at 1:30 PM
Math- We wrapped up our year learning about and classifying two-dimensional shapes. I’ve enjoyed getting to know your students this year and wish them the best of luck in 6th grade!
From Mr. Kelley:
We finished the year with a summer-themed spelling/vocabulary list. Students participated in a whole class mystery in which clues where hidden throughout the room. In social studies, we finished up our study of westward expansion and played a trivia review game.
From Mrs. Nowack:
Science: Thank you to all of the parents who sent in food for our “eating a rainbow” activity. It was fun watching kids try new foods, too!
Reading: Encourage your child to continue reading all summer long! Here’s a link to the Public Library for you to check out!
Language Arts: Students may continue with their writing over the summer, too. Students can access their daily writing by logging in to their google accounts from any computer with internet access. Letter writing is an excellent source of communication and great practice for writing skills!!
From Mr. Peterson:
Science: We have been learning about how limestone caves form, including how limestone and other rocks form.
Reading and Writing: We finished up our This I believe… podcasts. I was so pleased with the results. The kids’ writing was a delightful mixture of funny, moving, and profound. I do hope you stop by and listen to some of the episodes we have up on the website we created for this project – Our Beliefs: Advice for living a good life: https://goo.gl/kDPfP3.
From Mrs. Suhr:
Social Studies - Students finished up the year learning about the state of Iowa. We read and discussed the history, government, and geography of Iowa.
Language - Language got cut short this week due to the early outs. We finished practicing good conversation. Students succeeded in having conversations while staying on topic, using eye contact, and without interrupting. Hopefully they can put their devices down this summer and continue to practice good conversation skills!
