This week, the class selected their final read aloud book of the school year, and after reviewing and voting upon 6 different choices, students selected a fantasy story called, "Fortunately, the Milk" written by author Neil Gaiman. In keeping with the theme of selecting our last read aloud, students also got an opportunity to select their last chapter book that they will read this school year. Many students combed our classroom library in search of the perfect book, or they selected one of the 5 different choices that didn't get chosen from our read aloud options. Whichever way they did it, students now have a book selected and reading schedule for the remainder of the school year, and we couldn't be happier.
This week, students continued working with customary units to convert measurement using length, weight, capacity, and time. Students used their knowledge of these conversions to solve addition and subtraction equations, as well as story problems. Most students are doing extremely well with these concepts, and you can see that based on your child's Seesaw assignments. Since we use customary units here in the United States on a daily basis, don't be afraid to get your child involved when accomplishing routine tasks like shopping, cooking, or scheduling an event using a timer!
Next week’s math: Customary Measurement: Lessons 10-13
Next week’s vocabulary test: Sharing the Planet
We are officially DONE with OSAS testing! Your child worked extra hard these last 4 weeks, and you should be oh so proud of all their accomplishments...don't forget to tell them "Congratulations!"
Upcoming Field Trip
This coming Monday, June 3rd marks our last field trip of the school year. As part of our final inquiry project, we will be traveling to the Cedar Mill Wetlands off Barnes Rd. and just before NW 118th. The students will be leaving West TV at 12:20 pm and we expect to arrive at our destination within ten minutes. We plan to head back to school around 2:00 pm and expect to arrive shortly thereafter. During this field trip students will be going to 4 different stations to test water quality, and look for indicators of a healthy watershed. We are asking for your help in reminding your child of the field trip (since it is on a Monday), and would love it if your child came to school that morning with tennis shoes, long pants, and a water bottle. If you have any last-minute questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Next Tuesday, students will be participating in Field Day, an event that takes place every year and is considered a celebration of the school year coming to an end. It's hard to believe that we only have two more weeks of school left, but these students have worked extremely hard, and deserve a fun afternoon of outdoor activities. Ms. Cereda (our school P.E. teacher) is putting on the event, and is still in need of parent volunteers, so if you are interested in joining in on the festivities, please sign up to participate. It cannot attend, you can still help by sending your child to school that day prepared! Our field day takes place from 12:50-2:20 pm, and it would be great if you helped remind your child to wear comfortable clothing, and athletic shoes, as well as bring a water bottle and any sun protection gear they may need. If you have any questions about the event, please don't hesitate to reach out!
