May Update!

Whew!  May has flown by and it's been a busy month since our last update.  It's been a fun and exciting time in Room 004 as we are working on our last IB unit, completing end of the year assessments, and enjoying our last few days together.

Earlier this month we released our Painted Lady Butterflies!  Students really enjoyed watching them grow from tiny caterpillars into beautiful butterflies.  We even saw a few moving around in their chrysalis!  I don't have many pictures from Release Day, as the butterflies were VERY excited to be in their natural habitat.  In the video below you can hear how fast their wings were flying!

Our next fun event was our SWAMPED! Performance and Awards Day on Tuesday, May 17.  Our students, Mrs. Coleman, and Mrs. Fernander worked very hard on this!   We celebrated our year of learning together with school and classroom awards following the performance.

A few days later, we had our PEP Book Fair on Friday, May 20th!  PEP (Public Education Partners) supplied all of our students with 12 FREE books!  Students had a great time choosing their books and enjoyed reading them when we returned to class.  This should make for a great start to our Summer Reading Logs !! (Bring those back to school in August for a treat!)

This week we had our last fun event - FIELD DAY!  It was warm, sunny morning full of relays and races!  Students were good sports and had lots of encouraging words for their classmates.  The excitement was hard to contain (and continues to rise this week!).  :)
