It has been a busy week, MAP testing is complete and journals are being creativity decorated! Our 1st student-teacher conference is wrapping up and a guide to "reading material appropriate for you" gave them guidance in choosing a "just right" book. We will begin to examine examples of great reading responses so we are not "retelling" the story but digging deeper into the book for a stronger understanding. "Blooming vocabulary" this week are the following: gaze, shiver, grizzled ,mournful, harsh and scarred.
Please make sure your child is reading nightly. In our discussions this week, many children were honest and said they are not reading nightly. Please help support this positive, researched-based activity. The goal for September is 30 minutes per day! How do we get better at anything? PRACTICE, PRACTICE AND MORE PRACTICE!!
We had our first spelling test this week on Friday. The spelling, grammar, and vocab packet was due the Thursday prior and a new one will be handed out at the beginning of next week. Students will always have roughly two weeks to complete the packet. In each packet there will be a letter to parents to guide you in a spelling activity with your child at home. Please ask them to review the packet with you and engage them in this activity (it requires your help!). Thank you for your support at home.
Please make sure you take a look at your child's Math Take Home Folder and sign the sheet inside. This week you will see homework, class activities and our first quiz in their folders. Remember to please take the sheets out before returning it with your child.
Next week we are going to take a closer look at worms and their role in decomposition.

Please help us out by looking into your student's band schedule. Remind them of the day of the week they have practice and the time. Next week will be the "black week."
