Weekly Newsletter for 6/8/18

Dear Room 4 Families,

Your child had a great time at field day! Thank you to the parent volunteers who were able to come help assist with setup and stations.

Next week is the last week of school. Can you believe that it’s almost over? Next week is a minimum day week with dismissal at 1pm every day. The last day of school is on Thursday, June 14th. We are planning to have an end of the year pizza party to celebrate our year together. Thank you to the parents who have donated to our party.

On Thursday, we will not be switching classes. We will be ending the year with our homeroom teacher and taking home our work from the year. Please send your child to school with a large paper/reusable bag with handles to carry all of their belongings home with. If your child will not be here on the last day of school, their report card and other belongings will be available for pick up in the office in the beginning of the next school year.

Dear Room 4 Families,

I’m glad that quite a few of you parent volunteers were able to enjoy the Volunteer Tea on Wednesday. We truly appreciate you taking the time out to help us in any capacity.

This week we have been busy with many fun surprise projects, including a birthday surprise for Mr. Chen! We have been working on our final assessments for reading, writing, and math, which will continue into next week. Thank you to the parents who have donated towards our last day of school pizza party. Please bring a paper shopping bag with handles on the last day of school to carry all of our work and belongings home.

This Week in English Language Arts…

We have been making inferences and connections to various texts that we have been reading. We have been studying the world map and the map of the United States as we follow Stanley along his world wide adventures and learning about how different countries are structured. We have been working on prefixes/suffixes, double constant spelling, homophones, and -mb spelling pattern.

This Week in Writing…

We are working on our sloppy copies for our All About Writing and have started to construct the pamphlet for our final drafts, which we will work on next week.

This Week in Chinese…

We finished a lot of things this week! Other than a couple of Reading assessment needed to be done, we worked hard to complete all the assessments in Listening & Word Recognition, Social Studies, and Science. We also threw in the usual word writing sheet, reading on iChineseReader, and writing characters on the Writer app in the midst of all the assessment. We’ll work on the Writing assessment next week and we’ll also start character affirmation project. Please be sure to have your child complete the last homework packet of the year and bring it on Monday. They need it to get the project going.
