Weekly Update! May 3-7, 2010

Our very last Colonization Settlement Round takes place on Monday. We had a great time simulating colonial interactions in the New World. We learned a lot about history, social interaction, and basic needs for survival. The American Revolution is coming up next in social studies.

This week is the last week before OMSI Camp (May 10-14). Please be sure that your child has a packing checklist and is well prepared before next Monday when we leave.

In our math group, we are beginning the individual work samples in class. When working on homework with your child, please remember to encourage them to show all of their work and have them explain all of their steps, including checking to make sure their answer is correct.

Lastly, Art Night is on Thursday night at 6:30pm! It will surely be a wonderful event, and I hope to see everyone there! After all, over the past two weeks our 5th graders have worked hard on art projects with their Kindergarten buddies, and it has been delightful to see them work well together. A few pictures are included below.
