Thank you for all my parents for helping create Founder's Day!
In Language Arts we are learning about informational text structure. We will also be learning about synonyms and antonyms for our vocabulary strategy. We will have a spelling test this week. If you need an additional list go to my PDF files. This week we are on Unit 2, Week 1 words. 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 beginning Unit 2. Our books are here and we are ready to dive in! Unit 2 covers Native Peoples of North America. Lesson 1 for this week is on Ancient Cultures. We will also be testing on the last region, the Southwest Region, on September 29th. We will know begin to get ready to test on the eastern states of the United States.
Field Trip information was sent home. If you are interested in volunteering please send in the bottom portion of the form that was sent out. Our first payment of $100.00 is due October 9.
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!
