SOCIAL STUDIES: (Ms. Ellis A-13) Students are currently creating a quiz on Asia, which will serve as a review of the unit. Next week we will briefly look at sub-Saharan Africa, highlighting the effects of European colonization, as well as resources, climate, and landforms. It has been a pleasure working with your children this year… have a wonderful summer!

READING: (Ms. Ellis A-13) Students will continue reading their free choice book.

LANGUAGE ARTS: (Mrs. Sullivan A-15) Students just handed in a final draft of their essay for the short story, The Witch Who Came For The Weekend. Students are working on their fantasy/science fiction book projects in class. Students are creating an interview in which they question one character from their novel. These interviews will be filmed using iMovie. We also will discuss verb tenses and how to use them appropriately in our writing. I have had a wonderful year with your children and wish you a great summer vacation!
