Weekly Report - Week of January 13-17, 2020
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Please make sure that laptops are charged each night. We will be finishing our MOY (middle of the year) benchmarks this week, and if laptops are not charged, students cannot take these assessments.
Below are some important upcoming events as well as reminders. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org HOMEWORK IS POSTED ON SUNDAY EVENING FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK.
Math: This week, we will continue learning about area. Please ensure that students are completing homework and reviewing their math facts each night. Students should be showing work on their homework. Homework that is missing work will result in a loss of 10 points.
Reading: We will spend this week reviewing main idea and supporting details. We will also continue with our chapter book – There’s an Owl in the Shower. Chapter book questions should be completed each night and be in complete sentences (the question should be restated in the answer). Homework that is not in complete sentences will result in a loss of 10 points.
Science: This week we will begin our new unit on forces and motion. In this unit, students will understand that motion affects the speed and direction of objects.
Social Studies: Students will have a test on Friday on the three branches of government. A study guide was sent home on Friday.
Word Study: This week’s spelling words and lessons will be on contractions. Please make sure students are studying their words nightly so they are prepared for Friday’s spelling test.
