It is hard to believe we have entered the final stretch of the school year! It has been an amazing year. This will most likely be my last "real update" for the year so I would like to take a moment to thank you for such an incredible year. We have grown in so many ways; we have learned together, we have laughed a lot, we have cried together and we have lifted each other up in prayer. Thank you for partnering with me throughout this year and for entrusting your child to us here at SASEAS. Know that I will forever hold this group of fantastic students and families in my heart and feel blessed to have been a part of the journey.
While we are winding down, there are still a few loose ends to tie up before we call it done! Here's what we will be doing for the next couple of weeks:
Religion: We will finish our study of each of the Commandments. They will have a test over all 10 Commandments next Wednesday.
Reading: We have finished "Book the Third: The Tale of Miggery Sow". This week and next we will see how their lives intertwine and discover what becomes of this mouse called Despereaux, the rat named Roscuro, Miggery Sow and the Princess Pea.
Written Expression: This week each child has their own Spelling list. We looked over the list of "Core Words" that all fourth graders should know by the end of the year and allowed them to choose 30 that they are still struggling to spell correctly. They will have activities to do on Spelling City each night. Our WOW for this week is dexterity. We will not be doing a "normal" prompt, but will once again incorporate a little art and creativity.
** Mystery book reports are due on FRIDAY May 25.
Math: As we tie up loose ends here in Math, we will concentrate on two digit by three digit multiplication, dividing by a two digit number and simplifying and reducing fractions.
Science: We will wrap up our study of electricity this week and take a quick look at simple machines.
