    This newsletter covers May 20th - May 31st. (No school on 5/24 & 5/27)
    During reading, we will finish our final unit- Meeting Characters & Learning Lessons: A Study of Story Elements. We will continue to analyze characters, feelings, story elements, and lessons learned. Also, we will share our opinions about the books we read. 
    Word study: The final word sorts will be introduced on Monday (5/20). The test will be on Wednesday (5/29). Please let me know if your child’s sort isn’t finding its way home. 
    During writing, we will start to finish our final unit- From Scenes to Series: Writing Realistic Fiction. Our little writers will be asked to use their superpowers to work with greater independence. 
    During math, we will take an end of year assessment. This will be chuncked over several days. Also, we will continue to work on/reinforce math skills that will prepare us for 2nd grade!

    We will continue to observe our chrysalises. Once the butterflies emerge, we will return them to their natural habitat. It will be amazing to see their transformations. Also, we will switch back to social studies. Our final unit focuses on identifying geographic tools and their uses.
