There will be no school for students on Monday, October 12th. Also, report cards will go home on Friday. Please remember that Friday is also the day that the "report sheets" for the Poster Project are due. Again, this is the handwritten part of the report only. If your child has misplaced it, I have the PDF copy below.
Because of the shorter week, the students will have a "Grammar Pack" instead of their usual "Reading Pack". It is still due on Friday.
During reading, we will continue to cover Main Ideas and Key Details. We will also learn how to correctly use possessive nouns and study meanings of different prefixes. Our comprehension strategy for the week is to summarize as we read.
During Math, the students will enhance their understanding of division by using multiple methods to divide. Ask them about their "fancy math words". You will be impressed with how much they have learned already.
Social Studies will cover the early explorers in Florida and what motivated people to risk their lives to sail here on ships.
Please remember that the remaining balance ($46 for each student and $59 for chaperones) and NOTARIZED permission slip for the St. Augustine field trip are due Friday, October 23rd. Extra permission slips and information letters are in my PDF files below.
Make it an incredible week!
Puzzle Piece Project Assignment coming home Monday! Students will draw a poster to illustrate a scene in a favorite, recently read book. Book selection must be approved by the teacher. A letter explaining this project will be coming home Monday.
St. Augustine letters with permission slips have gone out! Please look for these in your child's binder. We will be going on Wednesday, December 2nd at 5:45 am here at the 4/5 center. We will be coming back around 6:30 pm. If you would like to be a chaperone, please make sure you have completed and turned in a 2015-2016 Volunteer Application Form, along with a COPY of your Driver's License in order to be in the drawing. The chaperone slips are due Tuesday, September 15th. I will then notify you if you have been chosen or not. The deposit for the trip, $40, is due on Friday, October 2nd and the balance will be due on Friday, October 23rd. Please make sure, if you are chosen for chaperone, that all payments are turned in for chaperoning as well by the dates listed above. NO LATE PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. I have attached a copy of the parent letter on my website, as well, so you can refer back to it as you need. Permission slips, NOTARIZED, are due with the deposit.
