Mrs. Jackie D'Alessandro « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Greetings,

This is a big testing week for us. On Thursday we will have a test in science on unit 2, "Earth's Surface". This will be an open book test. A great resource for studying is viewing "Thinkcentral" online. 

On Friday we will have a math test along with 3 language art's tests. A study guide (practice test ) will be sent home Thursday night for math. The other tests are spelling, a coldread, and the selection test on "Volcanoes" with vocabulary. 

This week in reading we are starting 4.2. Our story of the week is "Volcanoes".  Some skills we are learning about are:compare and contrast, compound words and verbs. 

In math we are finishing up in chapter 7 with money and time. Please look for nightly homework and check for accuracy. Also, please check out the online resources through think central for extra help. (passwords in first page of agenda planner)

The behavior plan is currently posted below. Please see attached document. We use a clip chart in school each day. The students are able to move up or down on the chart depending on choices made during the day. If your child receives a 4 or above in their agenda for the day, they had a good/excellent or outstanding day. If your child receives a 3 or lower in their agenda, he/she was not making the best of choices in class. Please check the agenda each night to keep yourself updated about how your child is behaving in school. Your help with reminders at home is much appreciated. 

Please remember that each Friday we will have a coldread reading test and spelling test. Also, on every other Friday we will do a selection (a test on the story of the week and the weeks vocab words) reading test. When your child's reading text book comes home on Wednesday night to read the story and complete a worksheet, that will be the week the test is on. Also, if you look closely at the study guides sent home, they are on weeks 2 and 4 in each unit. Lastly, I am going to post when we have the selection test on the website. I usually do not post the coldread and spelling test as those never change; always on Friday for the entire year. 

All papers should include a name, date and student's number in the upper right hand corner. On notebook paper students should be doing a proper heading that includes a name, date, assignment, subject and number. This is the order it should follow and should be written starting on the first line (not the margin) of the left hand side. Holes should be on the left as well. I know this seems very detailed but, for the most part children are doing a great job with it and also it is a school wide used heading. Thank you for your help with this. 

Always be sure to check this binder each night for papers and behavior communication and homework.
