We are working hard on Writing each day in class for students to continue to make great growth and improvements in their writing. They have already grown so much so now we are working on making their writing even stronger. They can do amazing things as we continue to work to give their best!
Please make sure that your child continues to read nightly and records their reading in their log. This is graded weekly. We want to make sure every student meets their personal AR goal this week. I know they can do it, but we also need your help to monitor their progress and sign their log nightly.
Encourage your child to also study spelling nightly. As the words get more difficult, more practice is needed! Homework is required for students who score below an 85 each week and must be turned in by Friday.
Please make sure to have your child study their states every now and then, as we will have a States test each 9 weeks. We want to ensure that students keep those states memorized! The next States Test will be Monday, January 30th.
We are learning in Unit 3 in Social Studies on The Age of Exploration.
