In Language Arts we are practicing the skill point of view and argument with informational text. We will also be learning Latin preffixes for our vocabulary strategy. We will be having a Cold Read and Spelling Test on Friday. Our words are from Unit 3, week 2. If you need an additional copy of these words you can find them in my PDF documents below. Each night the students will need to read for 20 minutes. Parents, please sign their reading logs for your student. This is the only way I know that they completed their homework. Students were given their homework for the week in their agendas. Homework will be posted weekly on the calendar below.
In Social Studies this week we are continuing Unit 2. Lesson 2 for this week is on Native Americans of the Southwest.
Field Trip information: Parents please remember that fingerprints and the Waiver Papers are due by December 11. The final field trip payment is due on December 11th for both students and chaperones. Final payment for students is $105.00 and for chaperones $85.00.
Thank you for sharing your precious student with me this year!
I highly encourage you to take advantage of the A.R. resources that are available to you online. A detailed letter went home giving you both user instructions as well as your child's password for AR Home Connect. Please make sure to sign up! It only takes a few minutes. It will alert you through your personal email every time your child has taken an AR test, and will inform you what they scored on that test. Your personal account also lets you know what books your child has read since they've been involved with AR. Check it out by clicking on the link below!
