Special Notes
* Thank you to all of you who made food for us Wednesday in honor of teacher appreciation week, it was very delicious.
* Innovation Day was amazing!  I will put together a video of it in the coming week.  We will do a gallery walk presentation to show off all of our projects; it is always quite incredible to see what the students create.
* Don’t forget to send in pictures for the graduation bulletin board.
*  What a rainy day at the track meet but the kids did phenomenal.  They really made me so proud!  Pictures have been posted on our website.
*  Don’t forget to take the end of the year survey, link is on our website or ask for a paper copy.

MathWe finished unit 11 this week and start our final unit today.  All of my math kids will stay with me for this unit with the test scheduled for May 23rd right now.  Then we do the teapot project for a few weeks if all goes well.
Science The plants have sprouted and the students are pretty excited about it.  We have also continued our work on our biome project, I love hearing the discussion of how students will teach this or that concept to their fellow students.    Next week it is also all about the egg drop, which will take place Friday at 2:00 PM by sticking Mr. Jerry on the kindergarten roof.  We can’t wait!
Social Studies – We have been busy discussing the Constitution as well as its amendments.  Next week we will vote for president as we start our law simulation.
Reading Reading has been limited this week with MAP testing , Innovation day and track meet.
Writing We have done very little writing in writing this week due to all of the other things we had going on.  However, the students reacted to a video by Suli Breaks on their blogs, if you have not seen the video you should take a moment to watch it, it is very powerful.
