What's New




May seems to be flying by and June will be here before we know it! We are keeping busy in the classroom and trying to fit in so many learning opportunities until the very last minute. Here are some of the happenings/events for the next week or so.


  • As we continue our Informational Writing the students have chosen an animal to research in computer lab and then organize their writing into chapters to inform the reader.
  • During our Literacy time we are continuing to learn about Non-Fiction facts, and text features. We are also starting to learn about an Author’s Purpose (PIE..Persuade, Inform, Entertain), and also the Author’s message or lesson from the story.
  • We are just finishing up learning about time to the quarter hour, and five minutes. We will continue regrouping practice with double, and then triple digits until the end of the year. There are also opportunities for more practice, and challenges for those that need it.
  • This week’s spelling/phonics focus is on words that contain double consonants in the middle of the word, (glimmer).
  • Our May 17th Fieldtrip to Issaquah High School to see their production of A Festival of Fairy Tales is quickly approaching. Because we may miss our lunch in the lunchroom, please send your student with a sack lunch so we can eat in the classroom once we get back. We will be gone from approximately 8:30-11:00; if you would like to join us please let me know as I have a few spots left for chaperones.
  • Don’t forget to check the PTSA website for details about our Art Walk on May 20th. It sounds like it should be fun!
  • Lastly, thank you so much for making Staff Appreciation Week so memorable for me. I’m so lucky to have such a great group of students and parents!


Have a good week,
