For our next book report, we will be doing a Newbery Award or Honor book report. Students will need to read one of these books by April 30. The students will need to have the book in class until May 11, so plan ahead if it needs to be renewed from a library. We will be writing a formal book report entirely in class, so no at home work is needed with this one except for reading it by April 30.
As I begin to think about the end of the year, I like would like a little help from a few parents. I like to have a fun auction for the students to spend their pennies earned throughout the year. If you have any items you can purchase and donate to the End of Year Auction, from now until the end of the May, I would appreciate it. Any inexpensive toys or crafts and fun items for the kids to do during summertime is what I am looking for. Items from the past have been: ice cream cone coupons, rubber balls, squirt guns, activity books. I accept gently used items too, if you want to get rid of something others would enjoy.
From Mrs. Porter - In grammar we have begun a new unit on adverbs. The students will learn that adverbs tell how, when, where and to what extent in regards to the verb that it modifies.
