In reading, we read to a friend and worked on our fluency and expression. We got to use my favorite series, the Piggie and Gerald books by Mo Willems, to practice. We had so much fun doing this! I LOVE it when laughter fills my classroom!!!
AND... let's not forget about our new favorite Friday tradition: reading buddy time with Mrs. Hillenburg's third grade class! We look forward to this time every week. Why didn't we start this earlier in the year?!?!?
Thank you so much to everyone that was able to join us for our Spring Concert. I think the students did a GREAT job!!! It was fun to see Mr. Heller, Mr. Morton, Dr. Medlin, and Coach J as the Village People!

WALKING FIELD TRIP
The first grade students will be walking to Zott’s on Thursday, May 1st. We will be leaving the school shortly before 2:00 and will return around 3:15. The cost will be $1.00, which will get your child a tasty treat! Please see the permission slip that came home attached to the newsletter.
Our 3rd and 4th grade students will be taking the MAP test next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and the following week on Tuesday and Wednesday. This does change our schedule. We will have special classes in the morning instead of the afternoon. To help break our day up, we have some special activities planned for the first graders. Each first grade teacher will be doing a different science experiment involving ice cream. The students will rotate to a different teacher each day until they complete all three science experiments. The second week we will be doing the same type of rotation, only we will be reading books and completing a craft or activity to go with each book.
WOW!!! As a class, we did FANTASTIC on the Unit 7 test! The students worked so hard and it really paid off! Now we will move on to our standard and non-standard measurement unit. This unit is a lot of fun and the kids always love the activities that go along with it.
