Mrs. Colleen France « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

There are no spelling words this week due to delving more into our weekly nonfiction story, "Earthquakes" and taking our weekly reading test this Friday.

Founder's Day is almost here! Our booth has been approved and it is a take on the fun game of archery. Come and share in our school fundraiser from 5-9 on Friday, September 12th. If you would like to volunteer, please jot me a note in the agenda or an email. We look forward to seeing you there!

Picture Day is coming! Thursday, September 4 your child will be photographed for the school yearbook so school uniforms are required. Pricing packages were sent home so please have your payment ready for the photographer first thing Thursday morning. Smile!

This year Language Arts and Social Studies are connected together online under www.mcgrawill-hill.connected.com. Our focus skill is on character, setting, plot and our vocabulary strategy is synonyms. Our comprehension strategy is compare and contrast. Weekly Language Art Assessments will take place on Fridays. Spelling tests will be on Fridays, unless other wise noted, and our skill this week is on words with long e sound, such as evening and zebra. In writing we will begin to focus on informative essay writing, which will encompass expository writing skills. Students will be able to explain why about a topic and use details to prove the main ideas about the topic.

 Math and Science are connected together on www.thinkcentral.com.  In math we will start with multiplying one-digit numbers. Continue memorizing those multiplication facts from 0-12. Please practice these nightly. We also have timed fact practices each day, with a timed quiz on Thursdays. Your child will have fact homework Monday-Wednesday. Our Chapter 2 Math Test will be in September.

Science will continue with Unit 2: Rocks and Minerals. Our Science Test for Unit 2 will be Friday, September 12.We will have Unit tests that will be posted ahead of time and also written in the agenda by your child. All science tests are open book.

Our class is collecting box tops and soup can labels.  Please send any you may have in with your child anytime.

Thanks! Mrs. France
