Week of January 25th-29th
The 1st Book Report was sent home....a biography to be put on a Snowman template. If your child needs a book to work on the project....they can get a book in the library. The Book Report is due Monday, 2/1.
Nightly of homework, typically of math (the concept learned that day) and/or an ELA assignment will be sent home Monday thru Thursday. The homework is due the following day unless otherwise noted on the paper. The Reading Log is no longer part of the homework.
Centers are work the students work on during reading. The worksheets may not be all completed each week because they are in reading and unable to complete them all. I do not count this against any grades unless they are not using their time wisely. Also, the worksheets do not have to be returned unless it is stated on the paper. They can be completed at home for reinforcement of a concept but is not required.
I do send home work if it is not completed because they have not used their time wisely. It helps reminds the student the assigned work is important and let parents know the work is not being completed.
In Math this week, we are working on Chapter 5 & 6 ....Multiplication. Please continue to work on addition and subtraction facts for quick recall.
We are working on Summaries and Series Books in Writing and Reading Workshop. In grammar we are working pronouns, verbs and reviewing nouns and adjectives. Spelling Unit 4-4, the test is scheduled for January 29th. We will work on this concept with brainstorming words and writing them in sentences.
