    Happy Friday!!

    I hope you have had a wonderful week! Here is what you need to know for next week:

     

    • There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, May 27th in observance of Memorial Day. School will resume Tuesday, May 28th.
    • Field Day will be Tuesday, May 28th from 8:30am -10:30am. 
      • Parents are allowed to attend.
      • Students should wear tennis shoes and bring a towel and water bottle.
      • Hats and sunglasses are permitted
      • Shaved Ice money is due BEFORE field day begins. There will not be enough time to order and pay during the rotations. I have to turn the orders in beforehand. 
    • EOG's will be the following week on June 4th and 5th. It is ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE that your student arrives to school ON TIME and brings their FULLY CHARGED LAPTOP. These 2 components are absolutely essential to have a successful testing day. Failure to arrive on time or failure to bring a fully charged laptop will result in your student NOT being able to take their test on the scheduled day with their class. I cannot stress enough how important these 2 things are. 
    • We are in full time review mode for both ELA and Math. Please remind your student of the importance of working hard and carefully during our review. Encourage them to try their best. Remind them that they are FULLY equipped to be successful! They are going to rock it! I just know it.
    • A reminder that I will not be taking grades after EOGs. Students need to turn in any missing work as soon as possible to avoid poor grades due to missing work. Ask your student to log into the gradebook and show you their grades to determine if they have any missing work. EVERY STUDENT IN MY CLASS KNOWS HOW TO CHECK THEIR GRADES. 
     
    Homework next week:
    • Unfinished work
    • Xtramath EVERY NIGHT
     
    Review Topics:
    ELA Math
    Main Idea Equivalent Fractions/ Comparing Fractions
    Summarizing Adding/Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers
    Firsthand/ Secondhand Account of Events Decimals
    Inferences Multi-Step Word Problems
    Point of View  Division/Interpreting Remainders

     

    If you want your student to have extra practice on these skills at home, they may log into study island and select the skills they wish to practice. 

     

    We are almost across the finish line! Hang in there and thank you for all of your support. Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!
