Good morning Timberwolves,

Enjoy the day!
Though I have not received additional information concerning Tanaina's Virtual Talent Show, I did receive information about Tanaina's end of the year, "Bubble Farewell."
This Thursday, May 21st, from 3:00 - 4:00 PM, Teachers and staff will be in Tanaina's school parking lot waving bubble wands to say goodbye and congratulations to our 5th grade graduates, students, and families as they pass by in their cars.
Definately hope to see you there,
It is Monday, good morning!
As we begin the last week of school, please feel free to contact me if you have school items that need to be returned. Items may include a chrome book, classwork, and/or library books.
Students can continue on-line studies with Moby Mathematics, Moby Math Fluency, and/or Lexia. Also, going to Tanaina's school page web site, and clicking on activities, you will find some additional wb sites kiddos find entertaining, yet academic.
The more students review and apply their knowledge, the more they will retain it for the coming school year, and be able to build upon it. :)
Enjoy your day!
It is a Thrilling Thursday! Today is the last day of our daily assigned work, and our scheduled Zoom Session, please look below for today's Zoom Session info.
Next week, students will have time to complete unfinished class work, continue working on Moby Math, Math Fact Fluency, and Lexia.
Your may drop off library books, borrowed white boards, and computers, tomorrow during our Scheduled Friday pick-up/drop off, at Tanaina's school parking lot, 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM, or you may contact me through email, and drop the items off next week.
Next week I will continue to review students' visits to the above web sites, and correct this week's work. I will also continue to add notes in google classroom's stream, and on my classroom school page, under the calendar tab.
Next week will be the week to review Tanaina's Virtual Talent Show and on the 21st, staff is planning a bubbles send off as students and families drive through Tanaina's Parking Lots. Next week I will forward updated information to include times, and verify dates of these events.
Whew, it has been a challenging 4th quarter, and you have done your very best! With one week to go, hang in there and finish strong. :)
Zoom Session: Date: 5/14/20. Time: 1:15 PM. Materials to bring: Art packet, pencil, color box, scissors, glue stick, markers

Past Due Assignments
Date Due: 05/12/2020
Good morning Timberwolves!
This is the last week for daily assignments. You will also notice that this week's assignments are not as many, isn't that great!
As you complete your work, start looking around your home for the school's white boards, library books, and for those of you who borrowed them, chrome books.
I will accept school items on Friday, May 15th, at our regular scheduled drop off classwork packet time, or you may put the items in a plastic bag and hang them on your outside door knob from home, so I can pick them up and return them to school.
Coming up, Tues. & Wed. (night of participation determined by last names, ABC order) Tanaina will be sponsoring a Family at Home Math Game Night, with pizza. Please keep your eyes and ears open from Tanaina's news bulletin, so you may enjoy the event.
Also keep an eye on the date for those who wish to submit a video to Ms. Klapperich for the virtual talent show. We look forward to watching timberwolf talent, next week.
Have a good day!

Good morning second graders, almost third graders,
Another beautiful day! At 6:00 AM I heard a flock of geese fly over my home, and the tulips, along side of my house are ready to bloom.
Mrs. Snell, Rowyn's Mom sent a picture (below) of his thriving seedlings. How are your seedlings growing? Next week I will ask for your plant journal. Before you turn it in, read your weekly observations, to make sure you wrote complete sentences. If your seedlings did not grow, make sure you have a conclusion on why you think they didn't grow.
I look forward to seeing you at you at our scheduled zoom session today,
Date: 4/30/20. Materials: Go Math pgs.: 529 - 544, white board, expo marker
