Language Arts –  We took our MAPS tests and the children have all shown tremendous growth in reading and math.  The results will be sent home next week.  We are also assessing the children's reading level.  All the children have moved up levels this year.  Some of them have stayed where they were in the winter.  We continue o work on getting deeper answers and understanding. Please keep reading at home and over the summer.  Let me know if you need anything for summer!


Writing:  We continue to work on D.O.L  (Daily Oral Language-parts of speech and grammar) and wrapping up our writing projects from the year.  The children are getting very good at writing ideas and details, but still need to work on capitals and punctuation! 


Math- We have finished Module 8 and will be taking our test next week.  We will also be starting Module 7 with graphing, more time and money.  The children started to get a good idea about fractions this week!  Ask them about it!
