Today we ended that last normal week of the school year. By that I mean this is the final five day week for the students. This is the final week where there won't be testing of some sort. This is the final full week where the focus is on learning. From this point forward, we will be in review and test mode. Also, the last week of school is a short week and that week also will have the 4th grade science test.
Today the students took their final science quiz (not counting the exam) of the year. This finished out the Microbiology unit. The quiz was online (for most kids) and of course, the vast majority of them did quite well.
Afterwards, I did have them read or work on their posters. Next week will be all about reviewing.
Lastly, the weekly parent email has been sent out. This is the last Friday edition of the school year. However, I will continue to send them out each week with a finale at the end that I am already working on (3rd draft).
