Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day. Please check your child’s “Daily Folder. 

 Homework Folders

 Every student should be reading an AR book(s) of his/her choice weekly so he/she can meet his/her goal for the second nine weeks. AR points are earned by taking tests at school on books he/she has read on his/her level or above and earning at least 80%. Students can take AR tests on books from our classroom library, school library, public library, or books from home as long as they are AR and on or above his/her reading level. 

*Please remember to sign your child’s AR weekly reading log located in the back of the blue daily folder. Every Monday, his/her folder should be signed.

Your child will receive u3w4 reading homework tomorrow. The U3W4 reading homework is due back by Tuesday, February 26th.  



Peek at This Week and Next Week

Reading- Today we started u3w4. We will focus on weather and how it affects us. We will talk about the different kinds of weather and how we keep ourselves safe. We will complete u3w4 on Tuesday, February 26th.  The skills for u3w4 are ask and answer questions, main idea with key details, antonyms, and identifying verbs-have, has, had. U3W3 words contain the long e sound. The u3w4 comprehension, spelling, writing and vocabulary assessments are scheduled for Tuesday, February 26th.

Math- We will continue chapter 6 learning how to add and subtract 3-digit numbers, including regrouping ones, tens, and hundreds.

Please remember quick recall of addition/subtraction facts. Recalling facts is extremely important and comes in handy for our math chapters. I would recommend spending 10 minutes each day doing math flashcards. 

Science/Social Studies-Learn about weather.

If you have any questions, please email me at  


To Many Happy Days,
