Continuing our sayings of the month, many speech and language students will be learning about and discussing different flowers. (April showers bring May flowers!)
In 6th grade resource math, students are learning to graph, locate and identify ordered pairs. We will start integers, too. They are working hard so they are ready for 7th grade!
In 6th grade support and coteaching classes, students are working on writing poems, creating characters for stories, studying Roman cultures, reading “No More Dead Dogs” and creating tessellations in math.
It is hard to believe that it is already May and the school year is winding down. First graders have learned so much and we are very proud of the improvements everyone has made.
We are preparing for our SAT-10 test on May 7 and May 8. The test will focus on reading comprehension and math. Please ensure your child has a good night’s sleep and breakfast in the morning.
1st grade teachers will also be administering the FAIR and ORF assessments in addition to end of the year benchmark tests in reading and math. We are excited to see the results as we know students have worked so hard this year.
For those who are decorating the Mother’s Day Cakes, that will take place on May 11.
Please continue to read for at least 20 minutes each night.
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
Several Manatee Academy band and chorus students will perform tonight, April 26th, in the district-wide event: Music in Our Schools at 7pm at the Fenn Center in Fort Pierce 2000 Virginia Avenue, 772-462-1521.
