We still need to work on our behavior with substitutes, but luckily when I am on leave the substitute will have access to the Class Dojo and parent contact information!
I am pushing back some test dates due to my absence. We also finally took our retest on Canvas for Regions. If you would like to create your parent account for Canvas to see this assessment, you may follow directions on the website. I will be sending home more information on this at a later date!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
9-29 Place Value Assessment
9-23 Water Feature's Assessment
10-2 Early Settler's of SC (May Change)
We will take our Language MAP test tomorrow.
Reading: Each night, your child will be asked to read for 20 minutes from a book of choice or their guided reading book. After they read, they will need to answer a reading log question based on that book. They need to answer in at least three sentences and make sure they pick a question from the correct column (fiction or nonfiction).
Word Study: We will begin word study within the next few weeks. Students will be asked to complete these assignments in their reading journal as well. Be on the lookout for this to start.
Math: Each night, your child will have math practice each night that will help them review what was covered in class. Once we have iPad access this assignment may turn into online practice.
Science and Social Studies: Most nights your child will be asked to study for Science and Social Studies in our current units. About 10 minutes should be spent on each subject. Be sure to watch for test dates in their agenda. Some nights they may have a review sheet to complete. I will also start electronically attaching Quizlets to emails and newsletters for them to use to study. When we have the iPads they will have access to a Quizlet app.
iPads will begin coming home with students who have paid the 35 dollar insurance fee will begin bringing iPads home Wednesday September 9th (Orientation must be completed as well).
All students will have access to iPads within the classroom.
