The website has been updated - sorry for making you wait a couple more days! I added vocabulary videos to the Language Arts page. We made them today and will make another batch next week. Also, the word parts lists (word parts to memorize, spelling and vocabulary) have been updated. We will work with the lists this week and next, so the word part quiz for the new Helios Set will be next Thursday, and the spelling and vocabulary quizzes, next Friday.
We are writing a math-related interactive comic book that asks students to use QR codes to solve riddles and find clues around the school in order to reveal the story's conclusion. We will go on the QR Scavenger Hunt around the school tomorrow!
We started rehearsing for our "Gold Dust or Bust" play. We will perform it for the parents and a couple of other classes in the end of May.
The fourth grade will go on one more field trip this year - to Riley's Farm. The trip is on June 2nd. A letter will be sent home this week with information.
The calendar on my home page has also been updated. You will notice the testing dates are different than those that Mrs. DiMarco gave in her phone message last week. As of today, the fourth grade is testing the week of the 28th, not the week of the 21st. We also have LAUSD Math and Language Arts Periodic Assessments that same week. I know it is a lot of testing, but I am hoping it will only be one week long! I will let you know if I hear of any other changes.
Have a great rest of the week,
