October 18-22, 2021
I hope you and your family had a great weekend. I am returning to work next week, half days until Thursday. I am super excited to see the students. It’s been a long 8 days!
Please look for an email in the next few days for conference sign-ups. First quarter conferences are required, so please sign up for a day/time that works best for you. We will discuss your child’s progress during this time, and I will address any questions or concerns you may have.
Please ensure that your child is completing homework each night. Most nights, students will have reading and math. Homework does count towards your child’s overall average, so it’s very important that it is completed and brought to school the next day.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a fantastic week 😊.
Below is what we are learning this week:
Math: This week, we will continue with solving two step word problems. Please make sure your child is reviewing their multiplication facts each night. As we move forward in math, each topic builds on multiplication. Knowing these facts makes understanding the concepts much easier. Students will have a lesson and fact quiz on 8’s and 9’s on Friday.
ELA (Reading/Writing/Word Study): This week, I will spend time reteaching needed content because of my absence. We will review material read regarding the Middle Ages. We will also spend time reviewing adverbs, adjectives, subjects and predicates. Students will finish their informative paragraph on Lords and Serfs. We will being our new chapter book – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Students will continue to answer assigned chapter book questions for homework. Please remember that responses should be answered in COMPLETE SENTENCES (the question restated in their answer). Responses not written in complete sentences will result in a loss of 10 points.
Science: Please have students bring their moon calendar to school Tuesday. They will need this calendar to complete questions pertaining to the moon’s phases.
Social Studies: This week, students will read and learn about – People of the Coastal Plain, Piedmont, and Mountains. There will be an open book test on Friday.
