Our first affixes test is tomorrow. Please be sure that your child reviews these prefixes tonight. It is important that your child knows the meaning of the prefix and how the meaning of a base word changes when the affix is added to it. Remember, there is a link on my webpage that will take you to the flashcards. Happy studying!
Our affixes (prefixes):
Next week's affixes (suffixes):
-ful: full of
-er: more than, comparing 2 things
-iest: most, comparing 3 or more things
-ing: in the action of doing something
-ist: someone who
We completed our first book report in class this week. After your child made an independent attempt, we sat side by side to review any components that may have been missing and your child went back to fix his or her work. The next book report will be due October 4th on any fiction or informational book of your child's choosing.
If your child was unsatisfied with their grade, there was a form to be completed titled "Request to Retest". On this form, your child must fill in the topic to be retested on, the grade that was received, why he or she believes they received this score, and 3 activities that have been done to improve understanding of the topic. Activities could be making a Reconstruction poem/song, Reconstruction word cloud on the computer or paper, or rewriting notes in his or her own words. Our retest will happen next Thursday.
Please let Mrs. Drayton know if you have any questions about the test or retesting.
