Hello,

I trust that you all had a safe and enjoyable spring break. Well it is time to get back into the swing of things.

This week we will be identifying words that rhyme, writing phonetically to answers questions in complete sentences, listening to stories and determining if the books are fiction or nonfiction, and recognizing high frequency words. We will continue working with subtraction and begin to discuss Earth Day and recycling.

Report cards will be distributed on Friday, April 25th.

Thank you and have a great week.

C. Boone

Newsletter week of 4-21-14

4-21-14

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations to the 20 students who have met their AR goals for the 3rd period!  Please make sure your child reads TO you every night.  They can check out books on Wednesday during library.  However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school or at the end the day.  Also, check that your child is doing their spelling homework as the words are part of the reading skills for that week. I will continue sending home reading passages that your child needs to read to you nightly.  There are 2 questions to answer per day.  Please sign and return these to me on Friday. 

In Reading in this last grading period, we will work on the following skills:

2.5 use phonetic strategies when reading and spelling.

2.5b use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.

2.7 expand vocabulary when reading.

2.7a use knowledge of homophones

2.8 read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional texts.

2.8h summarize stories and events with beginning, middle, and end in the correct sequence.

2.8i draw conclusions based on the text.

2.9 read and demonstrate comprehension of nonfiction texts.

 

 

In math we will continue learning about probability.  Many of the students continue to struggle with addition and subtraction of two digit numbers.  I will continue to work with small groups here at school, but please practice these skills with your child at home.

 

In Science we will continue learning about living and nonliving things, which includes habitats. 

 

In Social Studies we will continue learning about wants, needs, barter, and money.

 

Please check with your child about their school supplies.  Some students do not have glue sticks, paper, or pencils. We are also down to our last 3 boxes of tissues.  If you could donate a box, we would appreciate it.

 

Thank you for all of your support.

C. Martie

Week thirty-one!

Well, I know that none of us want this spring break to end, but just consider it a taste of what summer will be….  We must get back to work so that we can proceed to June!

This week we will begin having weekly review quizzes in social studies to prepare for both the end of the year and the social studies SOL test that we have coming up next month.  This quiz will be given on Friday, so use your beloved pack to study your facts!  We’ll be doing lots of reviewing in class.   We will also begin to learn about the causes of the Civil War.

In math, we will begin working with elapsed time (SOL 5.10).  After we complete that skill, we will begin reviewing and reteaching of all previously tested SOL’s to prepare for the fourth nine weeks’ midpoint and the state SOL test.

In reading, we will finish two nonfiction comprehension sheets from the week before spring break and complete a team activity based upon readings from the red social studies textbook.  Students will create signs, graphic organizers, and posters together for a graded assignment.  We will begin building background on the Civil War and its causes.

In science, we will continue to explore sound, and on Thursday, we will complete an experiment on sound with hangers.

This Tuesday, April 22, 2014, we will take the spring NWEA MAP reading test.  Remember that those students that show the most growth (top three) will participate in an extra gym activity with Mrs. McCoy when testing has been completed in the building.

Last, but surely not least, tomorrow seventeen students will enjoy chocolate chip cookies and milk outside on a blanket as their just reward for passing the third nine weeks’ reading benchmark!
