October27-31, 2014

This week in class we will take our Unit 2 English/Language Arts assessment. This assessment is composed of 3 cold reads with 10 questions each and a 10 question grammar test. We will review the skills in class each day.  In the A Glance At our Week section below, you will find the skills your student will be retested on. We will take one cold read on Tuesday, one cold read on Wednesday, one cold read on Thursday, and the grammar test on Friday. Please review the grammar practice sheets that will come home with your student Monday-Thursday.

In Science we are discovering how to classify plants and animals. For our project, I am in need of school appropriate magazines that have pictures of different plants and animals. Please send them in by next Friday, October 31st.

 This Friday is Book-O-Ween! Students may come to school dressed as a book character. Please remember to send in the book with the student. Our parade begins at 8:30. That afternoon, we will conduct a pumpkin research activity. I am in need of 5 pumpkins (any size) for this activity, as well as 5 plastic table covers. Please email me if you can donate and send the items in by next Thursday.

Important Reminders:

Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know. 

 Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be  initialed each night.

Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
