Poetry FUN... I hope you've all saved the date for our first-ever Poetry and PI Day! We'll be having a pi(e) tasting event in conjunction with our poetry cafe on Friday, March 14 in the project lab and band room (on the back hall) from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM. Please join us for a real treat! If you're available to assist in any way, please see our Sign-Up Genius! (As an added bonus for your participation, parents may sign out their students immediately after the event so as to avoid carpool.) We have finished reading chapters 1-6 in Andrew Clements' book, The Report Card. Our tight schedule has us looking ahead to chapters 7-14 next week, with the ultimate goal of completing the book before the end of March. This book is available electronically as well as in area bookstores if you choose to purchase it. We will be taking review tests in English and Reading (poetry) on Monday and Tuesday next week. These tests will be STRICTLY REVIEW - no new material will be covered. Parts of speech, punctuation, capitalization rules, recognizing poems and fables will be some of the topics for consideration. Students have NUMEROUS grammar worksheets that can be reviewed over the weekend - and don't forget our friend MOBY MAX!! It's time for EVERYONE to be logging on for the "test prep" section.
