Notes from Mr. Payson May 23rd, 2018
In Literacy, in collaboration with Mr. Garner and the 5th Grade, we are studying, rehearsing and putting on a 30-minute version of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. We are mounting this production in partnership with the professional theater group Northern Stage, and it will culminate in our live performance at Northern Stage Theater in White River Junction on Friday, May 25th at 6:00 PM. Please mark the date!
Please remember that the most important homework is reading at least 20 minutes a day, five days a week. Readers are expected to fill out a book ticket (or book storyboard) for every book, whether finished or not. A completed book ticket or book storyboard is expected every two weeks. It is the student’s responsibility to keep a blank book ticket in their homework folder.
This week’s spelling list consists of words which contain the not-often-used letters X, Y, and Z. We will have a quiz on these words on Friday, June 1st. Please take some time to go over the words with your child.
Thanks for reading.
All best, Mr. Payson
