Summer is right around the corner!

You could feel it in the air's the Friday before Memorial Day weekend and it is warm and sunny. The children are definitely ready for summer break!

In math we took our first quiz for unit 6. The students did very well! YEY! Then we began creating a measurement chart featuring attributes we measure, the tools we use and the units in which we measure.

During reading we read and discussed our last issue of Time for Kids. We had a great discussion about walking on the moon!

Following music, lunch and recess we spent time writing realistic fiction. I got to conference with many children. Unfortunately, the students were just not "into" their writing. They were following directions but it was obvious (from my conferences) that many were rushing to say they were finished.

So, we ended writing a wee bit early and headed to the mini-computer lab for a much needed break. The students got some free time to "play" educational games on the Internet. They enjoyed that treat!

Have a great weekend!
