Week of April 16th, 2018

Report Card Pickup – Spring parent teacher conferences are this Wednesday, April 18th.  If you have not scheduled a conference time yet, please email me at mmwebb@cps.edu with your preference.  I will begin conferences at 11:00am, and will end them at 6:00pm.  I will take a break during the 3:00 hour. Please let me know the hour of your first and second choice time.


Mural Painting – Second graders at Ray are painting a special mural.  All second graders will have a chance to work on the mural once.  We are painting on Fridays and we will be using permanent paint. So please send your students to school on Fridays with clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty (or a smock).


Book Fair – The Ray school book fair is this week.  Please plan on stopping by during report card pickup, or send money to school for your student to shop the book fair with.


Walk-a-Thon May 18th – Register your student for the walk-a-thon at rayschool.dojiggy.com and begin fundraising to be entered into weekly drawings for cool stuff – museum memberships, gift cards, sports tickets and more!  Every student who raises at least $50 gets a chance to sink a teacher in the dunk tank on the last day of school.


Save the Date!  Just Get Sleep Fundraiser on May 6th – On Sunday May 6th you will have the opportunity to buy a new mattress in the Ray lunchroom at up to 50% off retail, with 20% of every sale donated back to Ray. Take advantage of this great deal and support Ray at the same time – WIN WIN!


Math – This week we will continue working on Unit 8.   Students will continue exploring geometry. Students will learn about different types of triangles, and symmetry.  Students will also review arrays and their multiplication studies. Students will continue their individualized small group math instruction and Mobymax.  Students may work on their Mobymax at home as well as at school.


Language Arts – We will continue reading our final novel of the school year this week The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau.  This week students will review story structure, and practice using the elements of a good story in their own writing. Finally, students will continue their individualized reading on Raz-Kids.com and Moby Max reading.    


Social Studies – This week we will learn about Belgium through our Passports program.  This quarter I am asking parents to come into the classroom and share their experiences living, and visiting other countries.  If you would like to share a country you’ve been to with our class, please email me at mmwebb@cps.edu to schedule a time that is convenient for you and the class.


Science – Instructions are going home this week for our final project of the school year.  Students will create their own “Save The Insects” brochure about the insect of their choice.  Projects are due on May 4th. In school, we will continue learning about our insects and plants.  Students will continue learning about the anatomy of insects this week. In addition students will continue to observe our caterpillars as they prepare for the next stage of their lifecycle.
