The students did a fantastic job on their
speeches last week. I am proud of how they all got up in front of their
peers and performed without any hesitation! That is remarkable!
With that said, we would like to congratulate Luke, our FIRST place
winner of our classroom Tropicana Speech Winner! Our SECOND place winner
was Kennedi, and our THIRD place ribbon went to Keegan. Good job to everyone!
This week in Math, we will continue to
prepare for 5th grade. We will have Math homework for each lesson
throughout the week. Our next test will be the following week. We
will have math facts for homework each night, and an assessment on Thursday.
During Language Arts, the students will work on how to cite information
from different sources. We will also revisit "Sequence" in text
structure and figurative language found in literature.
We wrapped up our Unit on Matter last
week, and we are moving on to Energy and Its Uses. In Social Studies we are working on Florida in Modern Times. The students have been working on a mural representing the Great Depression.
Take a moment to view our calendar below.
We have our Celebration of the Arts on Tuesday evening, and our students
may wear their 15-year Celebration shirts on Friday if they ordered one last
As always, please email if you have any
questions. I can't believe we are in our last week of April!
Make it a great day!
