We are down to 4 books in our Tournament of Books. Third Round voting will take place on April 25th.
Please remember that Spring Break is from April 13-21. Students will be back in school on Monday, April 22nd.
Las Colinas will have an informational Parent Night for all parents of incoming 6th graders in the Las Colinas Gym at 5:30 on April 23rd. There will be a field trip to Las Colinas for the 5th graders on the afternoon of May 28th.
For the week of April 22nd, here’s what you can expect:
Language Arts: This week we will begin a novel study of the book, Walk Two Moons. It is important that students do not read ahead in the book as there is quite a bit of suspense and we don't want any spoiler alerts. Students will have vocabulary to study as well as comprehension questions for each chapter.
Math: This week we will continue our study of quadrilaterals. The End of Module 5 Test will be on Friday, April 26th.
Science: We will begin our unit on Physical science this week with properties of matter.
States and Capitals: Students have done very well on their tests the first two weeks. This week is another small section. After that, the regions will have more states. Students should continue to review the prior states so they are ready at the end to test on all 50.
