Vassar Road Elementary School


Empower. Challenge. Grow.

 Week of May 9-13
     Please remember the class t-shirt money is due Wednesday, 5/11. Students shirts are $6.00 and if an adult would like to buy a shirt it is $10.00
   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. 
   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 working on  Chapter 15 & 16 Skip Counting 3's & 4's and multiplication. Please continue to work on addition and subtraction facts for quick recall.  
   We are working on Persuasive Writing and completing our unit on Fairy Tales in Writers and Readers Workshop. In grammar we are working pronouns, verbs and reviewing nouns and adjectives.  
    Spelling Unit 14, the concept is on "ou" and "ow" words. The test is scheduled for Friday, May 13th.  We will work on this concept with brainstorming words and writing them in sentences.
