Mrs. Rish's Class Skills Agenda
Students are continuing to use our friendship themed books to answer the question: "How can I make and keep a friend?" We have taken comprehension quizzes on Frances Frog's Forever Friend, Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend and Yes We Can! Students also are selecting books about friendship when reading with a partner. We will focus on You Will be My Friend! and Chamelia and the New Kid in Class this week.
Students also are reading nonfiction books to continue to expand knowledge of forces and magnets.
We are continuing to work through the five areas of Daily Five. This design gives students lots of practice in the most essential aspects of literacy.
ventured, describe, edge, hesitate, anonymous, unselfish, satisfied, neighborly
Please make sure that you and your child use the vocabulary words each week. Students should be able to understand the word when used in a sentence. The vocabulary tests are read aloud to the students each week.
- Understand Concepts About the Ruler
- Measure and Estimate Length Using Different Measurement Tools
- Measure and Compare Lengths Using Different Length Units
We also are practicing word problems and the addition and subtraction strategies that we have learned.
Please complete 2 Homework Tickets per week. Your child should teach a parent/guardian the math concepts at least two nights per week. Students are bringing home completed homework sheets on a daily basis. They should use two of these sheets to explain the lesson to someone in the household. Each Friday, two completed Homework Tickets should be returned to me.
Read daily. Raz-Kids may also be used for reading time.
Message from the Office
Each student is allowed 6 parent excuses per year (this is a change from years past). Parent excuses can be a hand written note or you may email the excuse to your child’s teacher and copy the excuse to: PPattendance@trussvillecityschools.com.
An ORIGINAL doctor’s excuse may be turned in from the parent by the student. Doctor’s excuses may be faxed to 205-228-3201 ONLY by the doctor’s office. We can NOT accept a faxed doctor’s excuse from a parent.
All excuses MUST be turned in within 3 days of the absence.
