Week of May 29 – June 1, 2018

Our State SOL Math test is tomorrow. The students have a WS that covers a few of the SOLs included on the test. It is due tomorrow morning. Remind students to get a good night’s sleep, good breakfast, and come to school ready to do their best. They should create a solid Brain Dump and show all work necessary to prove their answer.

Reviews

I am sending home the Math review packets tomorrow as they are finished with them in class. Use them to make corrections or review. Use the answers in the back to check them, but I require them to show all work on paper.

A Science WS is also coming home with work for Tuesday – Thursday nights. They are to use the yellow Science packets. If they cannot be found, there is a copy of all 4 online under STAR (review).

IXL and Study Island are also good sources of review items.

Week of 5/14 – 18

We are reviewing all curriculum taught in Math and Science. We will be finishing up the Math Review packets some time this week. I will send them home after we finish, so students can use them for review before the test. Have your child go through the booklet, correcting any incorrect answers and reviewing all other format of questions.

The Science can be seen on STAR under review. The booklet they are now using in class can also be used for review, as well as the 4 NW packets collected throughout the year. All material in packets is potentially on the test. Science is generally more application rather than just recall. The test is half 4th grade and half 5th. All material is included in the books.

Homework will be on an as needed basis, but nightly review of packets is highly recommended. If you have any specific areas of concern, I can send some practice in those areas to use at home.

Testing dates:

Reading – Thursday, May 17th

Science – Wednesday, May 23rd

Math – Wednesday, May 30th

Thanks for all you do at home to help your child at school.

Field Day 5/4

We are asking for cases of water from anyone who can donate. It is going to be pretty hot on field day. The students will need to replenish water throughout the day. If you are able to send in packs of water, we would very much appreciate it.

Also, remember to apply sunscreen before they leave home and send a hat. There is limited shade outside.

Thanks for all you do.

Week of 4/3- – 5/4

We are attending the Middle School Orientation tomorrow. Several students still have not turned in their permission slips to go. If your child has not turned in their slip, please send a signed note tomorrow giving them permission to go or send me an email giving them same. They will only be gone approximately 2 hours. They will visit the school they are zoned for using home address.

The make up day for snow day March 13th will be made up by turning June 14th in a full school day. This is the last day of school and was previously an early release.

Math – We are reviewing in class, but don’t want to send the large packets home. IXL, Study Island, or STAR are good places to review at home. I will send work to complete at home as the testing date nears.

Monday – None

Tuesday – Practice 4-7 Using Divisibility Rules

Wednesday –  Thursday – None

Thanks for all you do at home to help your child at school.
