We have a fun and busy week ahead of us!! But first, snacks are dwindling in the classroom-please bring enough for 34 students!!! Many thanks, they are asking for snacks!!
Also, ISAT’s are March 4th- 7th. Monday through Wednesday will be reading and Math and March 7th-Thursday will be science. Please mark your calendar. (and see Science for Science/Language Arts homework for the next 5 week or so)
No school for students this Friday-Staff Development Day.
Thanks for the Kleenex tissue that has been coming in-we could still use more!!! We have lots of runny noses, coughs and colds in the classroom!!!
–A friendly reminder that your child should come to school prepared with pencils, a red marking utensil for corrections and good energy to study!!!
Language Arts: We will be focusing on Questions using Graphic Features, recognizing suffixes and working with -able, and -ible and participles. We will have a test on Thursday.
I hope your child showed you all the books that they have read and been tested on in AR!!!! I have seen so very many gains it just makes me smile!!! Thanks for your help!! They seem to be enjoying their reading and their stories!!!
Homework: (see science) But, I will also tell students to take home their Journeys Book for re-read the story-“The Life and Times of the Ant.”
Math: We will complete lessons 6.9 and 6.10-working with latitude and longitude and reviewing division. We will practice for our Unit Test on Wednesday and have our Unit 6 test on Thursday.
Homework: Monday and Tuesday 6.9 and 6.10, Wednesday, review and study for the test. Test on Thursday.
Science: We have completed our Electricity Unit. The science ISAT covers Life Science, Earth and Space, Physical and Scientific Inquiry-to name some. Over the next 5 weeks, we will have about 20 short lessons , using a lot of vocabulary, on each of these sections in science. We will be completing some of these in class and some of these will be for homework.
Homework: We set up a folder today and got through the first lesson-there are aabout 90 or 100 short lessons. Your child will have a worksheet each night that they will be responsible for reading and completing both sides of the worksheet-2 lessons total. Please have them tell you the homework system that we have put in place -again, for the next 5 or so weeks. They should be bringing this new folder home each night for review on what we did in class and to complete the next -usually-2 lessons for homework. Thanks for your help-it should be fun!!
Social Studies- We will be slowly finishing up Chapter 3- land resources, map reading, our neighboring countries,and looking at different regions that the United States is divided into.
If we get through all of this by Thursday afternoon it will be wonderful!!! 🙂 It sounds like a lot, even to me!!! Have a good week. Jean Clement
