We do not have school on Monday, April 11th! I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday. Enjoy your day!
Hornung is having a small book fair next week on April 14th and 15th. Students can purchase books during lunch time and Thursday evening the fair will be open 6-8:30pm. Hope to see you there!
Third and fourth graders around the State of Michigan will be taking the M-Step standardized test. Students coming to school with a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast can really help them perform best. Some students may feel a little overwhelmed or stressed about this first standardized test they experience. I will do everything in my power to make it a relaxed, stress free atmosphere to make sure they are comfortable and confident! If you child is absent on a testing day, make-ups will occur. The following is the schedule we have arranged for third grade:
3rd Grade (4 tests):
Tues 4/26 ELA – 50 minutes (CAT – headphones required)
Wed 4/27 ELA – 40 minutes (CAT – headphones required)
Thurs 4/28 Math – 45 minutes/45 minutes (Part 1 & 2…CAT)
Tues 5/3 Math – 60 minutes (Performance Task)
Wed 5/4 Make up Sessions
Thurs 5/5 Make up Sessions
We also worked on Spelling Unit 20. The skill covered was adding ing to words and doubling the consonant. Students also did activities on spellingcity.com. Working on writing sentences with our spelling words with capital letters at the beginning of the sentence and punctuation at the end was emphasized.
