Week 41-May 29th- June 1st

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a great long weekend! We would like to thank the DPTO for the delicious Teachers' Appreciation Lunch last Friday! We would also like to thank all the parents who attended the General Assembly.
It is hard to believe that the year is almost over! With this in mind, we would like to remind all parents that the year is NOT over yet and that it is very important that your child continue to come to school on time with his/her homework complete, including reading at least  10 minutes a day.
Just a reminder, please have your child wear his/her Discovery shirts on Tuesday for the field trip to 'Jungle Gym'. Your child does not need to bring a snack that day, only a lunch. Also, please remember that there is no school Monday and Wednesday is half day. Your child will be going home at 11:45 a.m.
Last, Discovery school will be holding their annual summer camp this year from June 9th to the 29th. If you are interested in the camp, please see Ms. Carolina for more information.
This week your child will inquire into the following:

Language Arts
  • Phonics- There will be no more new words being introduced this year. The class will  reviewing older Word Wall words through various words activities and chants.
  • Reading- This week your child will be reading a new legend this week, The Legend of the Indian Paint Brush. Your child will not only be reviewing the elements of a legend with this story but also examing sequence (beginning, middle, and end) and connecting story events to personal events. 
  • Writing- Your child will be inquiring into narratives and be writing one by relating events from the story, The Legend of the Indian Paint Brush, to personal experience. 
Math- Your child will be finishing Chapter 12. The class will be subtracting a 2 digit number from a 2 digit number without regrouping and reviewing the chapter.

This makes it easier for us to help you look for things if they are misplaced or lost. We also ask for your cooperation by sending back with your child any item he/she brings home that does not belong to him, and to notify the homeroom teacher about it (by text message, email or phone call).
