Week of May 8, 2017

 

Ray School Walk-a-thon – We will be holding our walk-a-thon on Friday, May 19th.  We are raising money to fund recess monitors, as well as a filtered water bottle filling fountain.  All students will participate in the walk-a-thon regardless of whether they participate in fundraising, we hope as many students and families as possible will create fundraising pages.  You may use the website  http://rayschool.dojiggy.com to create your fundraising page.  

 

Math – This week students will continue working in Unit 8 which focuses on geometric shapes, and introduces multiplication.  Students can also continue their individualized math lessons on mobymax.com from home.  If you have difficulty logging in from home, please let me know.

 

Language Arts – This week, we will continue reading  The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau.  We will also read “Half Chicken” in our Journey’s books.  This week’s vocabulary words are:  tumbling, flung, tangled, empty, swift, peacefully, stream, and blazed.  We will take a reading and vocabulary test on our Journey’s story this Friday.    

 

Social Studies – We will continue with our Passport series this week, with presentations on Venezuela and China.  All parents are invited to come in and share pictures and stories about countries they have visited or lived in.  Please email me at mmwebb@cps.edu to schedule a time when you can come in and present.  

 

Science – Students have received instructions and a rubric for the research brochures they will create on their insects.  Final brochures are due at school by Friday, May 19th.  Students may turn their projects in early if they wish.  Directions can be found on my website.  Our insects have arrived, and this week students will begin observing the life cycle of insects.
