Happy Holidays!


Thank you for helping make our party a success today! We had lots of fun!

Please encourage your child to continue reading every day! Six Flags Read to Succeed flyers went home last week. Students can record the minutes that they read to earn a Six Flags ticket. Also, encourage them to take a break from other video games and get on Stride Academy. Just playing on Stride Academy 30 minutes per day and splitting the time between reading and math would make such a difference!

We hope you enjoy your break with family and friends. Safe travels!

What's Happening...

In the Classroom:

Language Arts - When we are back from break, we will be working on poetry. Students will explore different types of poetry and figures of speech in order to create their own poems. We will also be discussing non-fiction text features and comprehension strategies.

Math - We will start Module 7 as soon as we come back from break. We will be focusing on multiplication strategies, subtracting common fractions and mixed number, and creating and analyzing information Dot Plots and Stem-and-Leaf Plots. For more information about the module, view the parent letter. Continue studying multiplication facts and logging into Stride Academy for individualized support. Study ideas here.

Science - Natural resources will be the focus when we come back. Students will analyze what examples are natural resources and how their abundance or scarcity impacts the ecosystem.

Did you know that you can access your child's information at the Home Access Center? You can set customized alerts if your child is missing an assignment or has a certain grade. There is even an app for that! If you are unsure of your login, please contact the front office to help.

What's my login?

Access Moodle at home at moodle.nisdtx.org. Students' login is: firstname.lastname and password is their student ID number.
