Winters’ Words for the Week!!!

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” ~  Albert Einstein

We are following this thought each day. We are focusing on our critical thinking skills.  It is hard to believe we have entered into the third nine weeks. This will be an intense nine weeks. I am confident the students will rise to the challenges ahead. We have another busy week ahead of us. Please review all of the information under each of the subject headings on my blog. I sent home information about Parent/Teacher Conferences last week. If possible please make plans to pick up your son or daughter’s report card on Wednesday or Thursday. If you are not able to come on those days I will send it home on Tuesday, 2/16/16. I am including several key dates below. Please add these dates to your calendar. If you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, e-mail, send in a note, or come by, and I will do the same.  Take care.

A. Winters 


Key Dates:

Tuesday, 2/9 – Friday, 2/12/16 – Suffolk Education Foundation Activities (information will be sent home on Monday)

Wednesday, 2/10 – Friday, 2/12/16 – Parent/Teacher Conferences (before and after school) (information was sent home last week)

Week 21

Well, we made it through the NWEA MAP reading test, and most students improved their scores from the fall!  Each student set a goal for spring testing.

We had the A. R. party for the second nine weeks on Friday, which was enjoyed by all I think.

We will submit a class Scholastic book order tomorrow, Monday, February 8, 2016, for students that would like to order books.  I handed out coupons for $5 off for each student ordering $10 or more.  There are extra on hand in the class if they have been misplaced.

This week we will work on our book reviews, which I think will be a wonderful way to complete a persuasive writing.  Mr. B. will come in tomorrow afternoon to present a book review to the class.

We will have math NWEA MAP winter testing on Thursday, February 11, 2016.

We will continue working on adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators, and working to simplify by finding the GCF (Greatest Common Factor).  We are finding the LCM (Least Common Multiples) in order to find the LCD (Least Common Denominator) to solve problems with unlike denominators.  We will also work on adding and subtracting mixed numbers, and converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa.

In social studies we will study the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and in science we will continue with oceans.

In reading we will begin learning about author’s Point of View by reading a classic and a fractured fairy tale on Friday.

It will be a busy, productive week!

February 8 -12

Hello everyone.

Parent/teacher conferences will be held differently this nine weeks.  I will contact only parents with whom I feel I need to meet.  As always, if I do not contact you, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  All conferences will be done before or after school February 10 – 12 (Thursday and Friday).  All report cards will be sent home on February 16th (Monday).

Please keep in mind that we try to go outside when the temperature is above 40 degrees. The children love to play outside so please don’t forget coats, hats, etc.

Thanks, as always, for your support.

B. Dennis

Newsletter for week of 2-8-16

Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for the week of February 8, 2016
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have started the 3rd grading period and our skills continue to become more difficult. Please look at graded papers when they come home and go over any mistakes with your student.

Eighteen of the students met their AR goal this for the 2nd grading period which means that they earned the points goal I set for them AND maintained at least an average 80% mastery rate on their tests.

I am finding that many of the students do not have the school supplies that they need. Please check with your student to make sure they have notebook paper and pencils. Please note they will need a shoe box for a science project NEXT WEEK.

If your child forgets to bring home his/her agenda with the homework sheet in it, please go to my blog to find all that information. Mrs. Martie’s blog

Please check that your student is doing their homework.
Important things to know about homework:
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. I am asking that you write the title of the book your child read each night in his/her agenda.
The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly. There is 1 question to answer per day. Please sign and return these to me on Friday.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks in addition to all previous skills:
decode regular multisyllabic words
identify main idea in fiction/nonfiction texts
identify problem/solution in fiction texts

In Science this week we will continue learning about Living Things which in includes habitats, habitat changes over time, and fossils. We will also study Life Cycles of plants and animals during this grading period.

This week in Social Studies we finish studying how communities change and begin learning about ancient Egypt. The students will also learn about ancient China this grading period.

This week in Math the students will continue to practicing adding two digit numbers with regrouping. This is a very DIFFICULT skill for 2nd graders so please look over their math homework. The students will also begin estimating this week. The following skills will also be presented this 9 weeks:
estimate and measure length, weight/mass, and liquid volume
Subtract 2 digit numbers with renaming
construct, analyze, and solve problems using graphs
count and compare a collection of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters with a total value less than $2.00

I will be sending the list of names of the children in the class by a separate email if your student wants to bring in Valentines on Friday. We will NOT have a formal party.

As you can see, we will be VERY busy this grading period with many new skills. I want to thank you in advance for any reinforcement of the skills that you can provide at home.

Mrs. Cindy Martie
