It was great to see so many of you at open house last night. We enjoyed having the opportunity to share more about our routines and have you explore your child’s classrooms.
Math- Students will be taking their mid-module math assessment on Thursday next week (Sept. 6th). Please be sure to check their lesson exit ticket scores (when they are sent home) because that provides more insight to their understanding of that particular lesson. They don’t have one every day, but a few times a week.
Science- We’ll be wrapping up our unit on understanding the scientific process and moving into learning more about life science-interdependence and how animals live and survive in their environments.
Reading- We have continued working on main idea with Tarantula Scientist as well as figurative language, character traits, and using context clues to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. They will be taking their first formative assessment on these skills on Wednesday.
Writing- We completed our first writing prompt together as a class. This will be an example that each student will be able to use to work on their own writing piece next week.
S.S. – Scholastic News has been ordered and the first issue should arrive at the beginning of September. This will be used in social studies along with our textbook.
Reading- students are expected to read 5 out of 7 nights and record it on their reading log. Parents should initial each night and these are due every Friday.
Spelling- Students should complete the nightly spelling activity and keep in their binder for check in the next day. If all nights are complete ahead of time students can turn their work in early. They need to keep the word list to study for their test on Fridays.
Math- Students have a worksheet to complete each day when learn a new lesson (Mon.-Thurs.). These are due the next day and checked over in class by the students so they see any mistakes that were made.
Conduct cards are being sent home today. Please sign anywhere on the card and return it on Tuesday.
There is no school on Monday due to the Labor Day holiday.
If you’d like to order from the Scholastic book catalogs, orders can be done online or returned by September 7th.
Have a great weekend\!
