10/01/2018 Unit One Week Five Spelling & Vocabulary Tests
10/01/2018 Mid-Chapter Check Point
Good afternoon! I wanted to share a few quick notes to keep you up to date on what is happening in our classroom:
Homework: Each one of your students should have brought home a homework folder with three math sheets and the Unit 1 Week Five spelling and vocabulary words. As always, homework is due on Thursday. Please remember to read a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes a day, at least five days a week.
Reading: This past Friday we took the Unit One Week Four Reading Test. This is the first time the passages were not read aloud by the teacher. The questions were read aloud and all students were encouraged to read the passages 2 times each before answering the questions. We will continue to remove supports so that we can get a true picture of how well each child is reading, using reading strategies, and comprehending what they read. As mentioned at Open House, we wanted to provide extra support at the beginning of the year to help them adjust to the Second Grade Testing Format.
Math: Mid-chapter Checkpoint for Chapter Two will be on Monday, October 1st. Please look in your child's Friday folder at the end of this week to see the first half of Chapter Two.
Classroom Supplies: Please send in a clean sock for your child to use as a white board eraser. If anyone is able to send in dry erase markers, they would be much appreciated.
