Language Arts:  This month we are wrapping up our final spelling tests.  May also marks the end of having homework.  The final homework will be due May 18th.  We will be doing more reading and writing, using the skills they have been learning all year long. 

Math:  The goal is to finish the second math workbook by the end of May.  Students will be learning about fractions this month, as well as shapes, graphing, and addition skills.  We are wrapping up our lessons, so that we can use our gained knowledge toward fun activities in the classroom.

Science/Social Studies:  This month we are going to be doing our lesson about insects.  The students will be learning about different types of insects and how they change.  They will be learning the difference between spiders and insects as well.  Our class caterpillars will be butterflies by the end of May and we are looking forward to releasing them. 

We are also going to have our unit on Mothers this month.  The kids will be making mothers day gifts as well as discussing what makes their moms special.

This month we also have our ocean theme.  We will be studying the ocean, ocean creatures, and what you can find in the ocean.

We will be learning about the four elements this month.  We will discuss Earth, Water, Fire, and Air.  This will be the unit that we get to talk about sinking and floating and make boats to float. 

We will conclude the month with our lesson about nursery rhymes.  We will be reading nursery rhymes and learning to recite them.
