Mrs. Brooke Williams « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Please see our calendar for important dates!

We have begun Writer's Workshop Project #3, which is an opinion essay. They chose one controversial topic out of three that we have read about in class.  The rubric can be found in the pdfs below.  The writing prompt and planning sheet can also be found in the pdfs.  Feel free to guide them in their planning, research and revising/editing, but this essay will be written in class.   I do encourage them to type their writing.  A due date has not been determined on this project yet, as I need to see the pacing and want to ensure I give them adequate time in class. 

The students have begun their Unit 1 Social Studies culminating project.  They are working in groups to create a poster on a specific region.  The rubric for this project is on p. 29 in their social studies book and is also in the pdfs below.  The due date on this project is Friday, Sept. 26. 

The second payment for the Kennedy Space Center field trip is due October 9.  On October 9th, the second installment of $75 is due for children and chaperones.  This makes a total of $150 paid by this point.  So, if you paid $100 for your first payment, you are only required to pay $50 for your second payment.  Our class will be going on the KSC field trip Jan. 15 and 16.

Your child will need to continue their nightly reading for homework.  They need to read 20 minutes (or more!) each night and fill out their reading log.  Parents need to sign their reading log each night.  Parents, also sign their agenda and clean out the "leave at home" section of their take home folder nightly.

The children do not have a spelling test the week of Sept. 15.  We will continue with regular spelling lists the week of Sept. 22 and Sept. 29.  We plan on starting individual spelling lists the week of Oct. 6.  The week of Oct. 6 is also the week we will start grading cursive on their spelling handwriting words.  The spelling words for the week of Sept. 22 are:

1.  joint

2.  foul

3.  coil

4.  hoist

5.  stout

6.  dawdle

7.  mouthful

8.  counter

9.  brought

10.  bawl

Please let me know if you need anything at all.  I am here to help your child be the best he or she can be, and that takes teamwork.   

Sincerely,

Brooke Williams
