A Glance at Our Week . . .  

After school camps will continue this week.  Tuesday is Math and Thursday is Language Arts for those who received an invitation letter.   The students who attend the camp will go to car line first, and then they will head back to class with their assigned teacher at the end of car line.   When the camp commences each day, the students will either go to aftercare or will be walked out to a second car line if parents are here at 4p.m.  In addition, tutoring will begin this week.  If your child was invited, he/she would have a note that was sent home last week. Please check your letter for the days (Monday-Thursday days with a 2:35p.m. OR 3:30p.m. time slot)

In Language Arts this weeks, the students will review their Buffalo Reading Responses (opinion essay) from last week about zoos.  They will use their domain checklist to help them see their strengths and areas that need improvement. We will then begin to work on practicing informative writing like we learned the first few months of school. During reading, the students will practice the variety of reading comprehension strategies that they learned this year.   We will also work on using context clues for meanings and definitions of unknown words.   In addition, the students will practice editing paragraphs to help them go over conventions and grammar.  

This week in Math, the students will finish up Chapter 11 on angles. The mid-chapter will be on Thursday and the big chapter test will be next Wednesday. Our facts practice this week focuses on division by 6.

During Social Studies, the students will finish up on Unit 3 which will cover the Civil War and Reconstruction in Florida.   The student will tentatively have an assessment on Thursday. Please remember that the students have access to their social studies books at home on ConnectEd-McGrawHill, and they will have a study guide to complete and look over the day before the test.

Please note that the students will show what they have learned in Writing this year on February 28th during the FSA.  The students will be offered a free breakfast that morning, so please allow time for your kiddos to arrive to school and eat.   Also, the students will be reminded to do their best to go to bed at a reasonable time in order to prepare themselves.    

Have a great week,

Mrs. Delia Collins
