Spelling Words: Lesson 5
We'll take a pretest over these words on Monday. Children who miss one or more words will bring homework home on Monday, as well. Homework is due on Friday.
We'll take our test that day, too!
This week, we’ll be finishing up our first topic in math. We'll review fact families and strategies for solving word problems. On Wednesday, I'll send home test practice homework. We'll review it in class on Thursday, and we'll take our first math test on Friday!
Keep practicing facts, too! Students are expected to pass their +5s test by the end of the first nine weeks (Oct. 14th). Students have 30 seconds to correctly answer all 13 problems. Your child should bring home a graded fact test each night so you know which facts your child needs to practice. If you're not seeing these fact tests, please let me know. They've been known to get stuffed into desks and forgotten from time to time!
You in a Box
This week, Rose will be in a box. We look forward to learning more about her!
