Week of May 14th, 2018

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).


Walk-a-Thon May 18th – Register your student for this Friday’s 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.


Math – This week we will continue with Unit 9.   Students will continue exploring area and perimeter, and review many concepts from this school year.  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 continue reviewing inference.  Students will continue to work with story structure in their writing. Finally, students will continue their individualized reading on Raz-Kids.com and Moby Max reading.    


Social Studies – This week we will learn about Iraq 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 – This week students will finish sharing their insect projects with the class.  In addition, students will learn about the important role insects play in our ecosystem.              


 If you have any questions, please e-mail me at mmwebb@cps.edu or call me at 773-535-0970.
