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.

Peek at This Week and Next Week

Reading~ On Monday, April 22nd we will begin U4W3.  Our class will be focusing will be focusing on how kids around the world are different.

The u4w3  spelling and vocabulary assessments are scheduled for Fiday, April 26th.  The u4W3 writing assessment is scheduled for Monday, April 29th. 

Math~We will  continue and complete chapter 8 in Go Math. The students are learning how to meaure objects using inches and feet. This chapter covers measurement using various manipulatives that we have at school. I have decided not to send homework that goes with this chapter because you do not have the manipulatives at home. Instead, I will be sending home practice from pervious chapters. Please continue working on basic facts with your child at home.
