  Dear Parents and Students,

We are zooming through October!  We are making progress on our individual goals, but here are a few reminders for you to help your child get the most out of their reading each day:

1. Make sure your child is choosing books within his/her AR reading level. Books should be chosen closer to the high end of his/her ZPD range.

2. Please allow a quiet place for your child to read for 20 minutes uninterrupted each night. This is his/her assigned homework. Thank you for signing the AR nightly log to verify they have read.

3. Nonfiction books should be read weekly and tested on by Friday. Students have multiple sources to pull from in our classroom, and can always check one out from the school media center. This is important because it helps build your child's content knowledge, gives him/her familiarity with different kinds of reading materials, and expands vocabularies too. Thank you for helping reinforce this at home.

This week we are testing on Unit 2! We are reviewing Grammar skills taught for the last five weeks and will send home a review sheet for your child to review on Wednesday night. The cold reads we do in class will be scored together for a final grade.

We are starting a research project on Animal classification on Monday. The students will be using print and online sources to research all about a particular animal from each group we've studied. They are really looking forward to this!  If they want to look more online at home, the web resources we'll be using will be on the media center page under Destiny.

Book-O-Ween is Friday!  The students are very excited to dress as their favorite story book character and bring their matching book to school. The Intermediate Center parade is at 8:30 on Friday if you want to watch and take some scrapbook photos!

In math, we are continuing our multiples of 4 (testing 1 minute on Friday). We are starting Chapter 6: Division!  I'm so proud of how hard our class works each day in centers and our math rotations!  I am seeing excellent team work and problem solving skills in our classroom.

Thanks for sending in your Box Tops for Education! Every little bit adds up!

Classroom donations needed: treasure box trinkets, small toys, fun pencils, and stickers - THANK YOU!
