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 a 90 each week and must be turned in by Friday.
We are learning in Unit 3 in Social Studies on The Age of Exploration. The test on this unit will be during the week of Feb. 13.
We will be celebrating Valentines Day on Feb. 14. If students would like to participate in the card exchange, they must bring one for each classmate. Please see the list on our Feb. newsletter for the names. We are also in need of 2 dozen unfrosted cupcakes if anyone would like to donate.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Mrs. James
