Class Dojo

Your child's weekly Class Dojo report is in this folder.

Please know that specialty teachers use Class Dojo

while our students are in their classes (Music, Art, P.E., Computers,

Spanish, Counselor, etc.).

Thank you to Mrs. DeWilde's 5th Grade!

Students in Mrs. DeWilde's class received free books.

Instead of keeping them, they decided to share with other students at Boyd!

They delivered a free book to each child in our class last Friday!

That is definitely caring and sharing in action!

We will write thank-you notes this week.

Reading and Writing

Each reading group will continue at their reading level.

Ask your child how his/her composition book must be completed each day

(date, title, question, answer).


In Writer's Workshop students have planned a short story. They have written rough drafts. They worked with help to edit and revise.


This week students will write final copies, and then they will publish and illustrate!

Math

We will continue working on subtraction. We will focus on fact families!

It is helpful for students to understand the relation between addition and

subtraction. If students know one fact (5 + 4 = 9) , they should automatically know three other related facts: 4 + 5 = 9 9 - 5 = 4 9 - 4 = 5

Unit of Inquiry

Students will continue to research their chosen landmarks in the computer lab. We will also learn about the Pyramids and the Golden Gate Bridge.


We will have our neighborhood walking tour this Thursday morning to look at local landmarks! Please be sure that your child's permission slip is turned in ASAP.
