Starting on Tuesday, May 3rd, our class will be beginning California State Testing. The students will be testing from 8:30 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. daily. Please ensure your student gets a good night sleep, eats breakfast, and is ready to do their best on the test. This is your student's opportunity to show everyone how much they have learned this school year!
Our class is currently collecting box tops to raise money for our school. Please save your box tops and send them in with your student. Thank you to Destiny's family who sent in a HUGE amount this week to get our class started. PTA is funding a class party to the classroom who collects the most. We are well on our way to a win and a lot of money for Woodcrest!
Interventions started for eight of our students right after winter break. They are coming every morning, except Wednesdays, at 7:30 A.M. to get an extra session of SuccessMaker in the hopes of reaching our grade level goal.
All of the students are working hard on SuccessMaker everyday to reach third grade proficiency. Your student is getting weekly feedback on how close they are to reaching our grade level goals. Many students have already reached their third grade proficiency goal and are working on fourth grade standards! Way to go! Be sure to ask your student how many more sessions they need to reach our third grade goal!
Oceans of the World
Your student is currently working on an 6 week unit about the oceans. The students will be learning about the oceans and how the animals and plants adapt to survive in their environment. Please talk to your student about what they have learned so far about the three layers of the ocean and harbor seals.
Fullerton, Fullerton is our Town
For the next four weeks, our class will be learning the history of Fullerton. We will be learning about how our city was established and the important people in history who made Fullerton the wonderful place it is today. Make sure to ask your student about the Tongva people and what an ostrich gizzard does!
