The Stegemoller Scoop

What's Happening in Room 505!


Notes:

  • Thank you SO much for all the donations for our holiday party next Thursday! I really appreciate all the support!
  • I will not be here on Monday and Tuesday. I will be attending a conference in Indianapolis. I'm excited to learn some new strategies to bring back to the classroom. : )



MATH


We will be reviewing ALL skills that we have learned this year. I will be starting Unit 10: Area and Perimeter when we get back from break. If you feel your child is moving too quickly in his or her math class, please let me know so I can find them a different classroom. Most likely, they will come back to my classroom instead of switching.


Please make sure your child is practicing their math facts at home. Addition 0-12, Subtraction 0-12, and Multiplication 0-12. I suggest using Flashcards, Flash to Pass (App.), or print free pages online. We give the students 50 problems to complete in 3 minutes. If you need to know what your child is working on, send me an email.


READING


We will be taking a 2 part Benchmark test on all the reading standards we have taught this year. It is aligned with our reading series.


Third Quarter Change!!

Starting after Christmas Break, I will be teaching my homework class for reading. This is crunch time before ISTEP and IREAD. If your child is in Miss Twyman's room, they will stay in her room.



WRITING


We will be starting our Persuasive Writing Unit. This one is my favorite. In addition to writing, they will be doing friendly debates on different topics. : )



I hope your child has a restful break!


Happy Holidays from my family to yours!!

REMINDER!!!

SRI and SMI will be tested the first week we get back from Christmas Break. Please make sure your child is finding time to read over the long break. My concern is that scores could drop if students are not continuing to read and practice math over break. We will be sending home Christmas Break homework to ensure that students are still reviewing skills.
