Please see our calendar for important dates!  Check out our April newsletter below for important information.

Tropicana Speeches are here!  This is an exciting opportunity for the children to refine their skills of developing a speech and effectively communicating orally.  I am going to walk them through each step to ensure confidence and a positive outcome.  I have given the Tropicana timeline below.  Please be diligent in following this timeline.  

April 22nd--Speech written entirely.  This is something they will be able to work on in class during independent time, but this is mostly to be done at home, with your guidance.

April 27th--Notecards completed.  They will have a little bit of time in class, but this also needs to be completed at home.

April 27th and April 28th--Dress Rehearsal.  This is their practice day.  They will practice their speech in class.

April 29th--Speech Day.  The children will complete their speech in front of judges for their final score and to see if they move onto the next level.

We are finished with Unit 5, The American Revolution, in Social Studies.  They are working on  a culminating project for Unit 5.  This project is called "The American Revolution in a Bag" and is due on May 1st.  We are now working through unit 6, which involves our nation's government.  In Language Arts, we are reading a classic.  "The Little Prince" is not a book they would choose to read themselves, but it ends up being one of their favorites.  If you haven't read this French classic, you should!  Of course, they are writing their hearts out as well!

The students will have regular spelling words the week of April 20th.  Here is a list of the words:

1.  prewash

2.  disable

3.  discolor

4.  mistaken

5.  preheats

6.  mistrust

7.  incorrect

8.  disconnect

9.  preview

10.  prejudge

Please let me know if you need anything at all.  I am here to help your child be the best he or she can be, and that takes teamwork.   

Sincerely,

Brooke Williams
