Notices and dates to remember:
MAP testing will begin next week. As this is the first time students are taking it, this will be an information gathering assessment. I will be sending results in a week or 2.
Students do not need to study to prepare for MAPs. They SHOULD:
- Get a really good night's sleep
- Eat a healthy breakfast
- Bring plenty of healthy food for snack and for lunch
Nov. 19: Parent Teacher Conferences. Thank you to everyone who has returned them. If you haven't yet, please do so as soon as possible. There is NO SCHOOL for students that day.
Nov. 26: NO SCHOOL - American Thanksgiving
ANYTIME: For our end-of-unit science project, students will be creating dioramas. If you have extra shoe boxes at home, please send them to school.
This week, students began immersion into Realistic Fiction by listening to stories from this genre. We studied what is character looks like on the outside and what they might be like on the inside. We discussed author's crafts and made planning strategies. Lastly, we each made our Tiny Ideas Notebook and wrote down at least 1 idea for our first story.
Next week we will begin 2 digit addition.
