Words: New words to come on Monday/Tuesday (Definitions are taped into agendas at the beginning of each week)
History: Geography and Regions of the United States, Midwest Region
If they pass their spelling pretest on Monday, they do not have spelling homework for the week. If they miss 3 or more words on the pretest, they have spelling homework every night. They may have one or two homework assignments during the week, but I will post them when they do. I know they have a lot of math and science homework, from Mr. Fischer, so I try not to overwhelm them.
They have a spelling test every Friday. They have their vocabulary and reading tests every other week. We work on a certain skill and certain vocabulary words for two weeks at a time. I always email parents when we have tests coming up, just as a reminder. We also have social studies tests on either Thursdays or Fridays.
I update my "Teacher Connection" page every week. On my website, you will find a bunch of useful information. I will post the spelling/vocabulary words for that week, what topics we will be covering in each subject, field trip forms, homework, newsletters, and other important documents. If you ever have any questions, please call the 4/5 center (central office) or email me at email@example.com. I also love getting notes in the agenda and will always write you back! :)
