Thank you Mrs. Ray!
What's going on in class?
The past week in Math students have been learning about dividing a decimal number by another decimal number. Module 2 will wrap up following Thanksgiving break. Just a couple of reminders.... Dec. 3 - Dec. 5 will be our middle of the year I-Ready testing. The following week students will have an interim (basically practice) and test for the state assessments in the spring. I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Nightly reading homework-
Studies have shown that reading just 20 minutes per day will expose students to over a million words per year. This will then likely improve school grades as well as increase state standardized test scores. Please check with your child be make sure they are doing their nightly reading homework and filling out the log that goes with it.
Students keep their Science Interactive Notebooks (INBs) and textbooks in the classroom, but they are always welcome to take them home with them as long as they return the next day.
It’s hard to believe it’s Thanksgiving Break! This week in social studies we wrapped up Ancient India and learned about the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. On Thursday and Friday, the students worked on creating their own Kahoot based on Ancient India, Ancient Egypt, or Mesopotamia. Kahoot is an online review game. When we get back from Thanksgiving Break we will begin learning about Ancient China. Have a fantastic break!
Missing Work/Testing after Break
Students who have missing work in classes should make every attempt to be caught when they return from break. There will be doing quite a bit of testing (ELA & and Math esp.) the last 3 weeks of the semester, and it would be in their best interest to be current on other assignments.
Please charge tablets every night. Many students are leaving tablets in their locker. If your family would prefer that the tablet stays at school, please contact your student's CAT time teacher to make arrangements for secure storage and charging.
Students of the Week!
