Welcome back. Hoping everyone had a wonderful and restful break.
Extra Help sessions for both ELA and Math are being discontinued. The students have covered much of the curriculum for the year in preparation for the state tests. The remainder of the year will be spent reinforcing , developing and mastering these concepts.
Thank you to all who stayed late and woke up early to join us.
The fourth and fifth grade have completed another service project for the patients. This one was called "Hop for Hope."
The fourth and fifth grade classes worked on a Lenten Service Project. We created shamrocks with Green hearts, they were called "Love Rocks". The" Love Rocks" had messages and prayers for patients at Sloan Kettering @ Mercy hospital. The students decorated small white bags, filled them with Love Rocks and gold nugget candy. Thank you Mrs. Hughes for being our angel delivery service.
Math will be a top priority as the NYS Math tests are in Early May.
We will be working on a Measurement unit, we will also be learning how to create and measure angles using protractors. These skills will be incorporating with our ongoing study of fractions. I will be sending home some important study/review guides over the Easter break.
As you can see Math skills are ongoing. It is essential to continue to integrate Math and the many facets into our day to day experiences.
Keep practicing the multiplication facts as well as long division.
