A Peek at next Week:  September 5th-8th. 


We will complete unit 1 week 2 in Wonders on Wednesday, September 6th. The essential question for this week is how are families around the world the same and different? For unit 1/week 2, I will read the stories and all the answer choices to the class and guide them through the directions. The U1W2 assessment is scheduled for Thursday, September 7th. The assessment will be graded but the grade will not be recorded. As we progress through unit 1, the expectations for working on reading tests independently will progress. Assessment grades will be recorded beginning with unit 1 week 3. 

Please have your child read an AR book of his/her choice over the weekend so he/she can take AR tests.


Our first math assessment math assessment is rescheduled for Wednesday, September 6th.
