This week in Language Arts, we are working on Social Studies review that will encourage students to use context clues, find meaning in text, analyze point of view, cite evidence, and compare and contrast for comprehension.
Students have received their SS End of Year study guide, and should begin reviewing it for 20 minutes each night, daily. A copy of it is provided in the Documents section. The guide is 8 pages long and covers content from each of the units we have studied this year. Your child should be able to define and/or discuss all of the terms and concepts within the guide.
Students will continue to write their weekly homework in their agenda. Students are also using an AR goal tracking form. It should be updated weekly, and after taking an AR test. In order to help your child keep track of his/her progress, a parent signature is required weekly on this form as well.
The 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony will be on May 17 from 5-6:30 at the Middle School gym.
Thank you for your wonderful support,
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!
