Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for the week of September 17, 2018

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | September 15, 2018 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope everyone stayed safe during our “hurrication”. I’m thankful that we weren’t affected as much as we could’ve been! We shall try to have a full week THIS week!

Please note that we are collecting Boxtops for Education. You can send them in with your student to give to me.

This week the students will continue to have homework. They will have homework Monday- Thursday unless otherwise noted. Important things to know about homework are:
• The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child’s agenda on Mondays.
• Please make sure your child reads TO you every night. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can visit the library between 9:00 and 9:20 AM.
• 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.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:
• Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.
• Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
• Use information in the story to read words.
• Use knowledge of sentence structure.
• Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.
• Reread and self-correct
• Use vocabulary from other content areas.
• Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.
• Locate information to answer questions.
• Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.
• Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction.
• Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.
• Draw conclusions based on text.

In Science this week, we will practice the Scientific Method, learn about tools that scientists use, and continue our unit on magnets.

This week in Math the students will work on ordinal numbers and patterns, and in Social Studies the students will explore what makes a good citizen.

This is the last week that I will send home a paper copy of the newsletter. If you would like to continue to receive a paper copy, please let me know, otherwise it will only be emailed.

As you can see, we have a busy first nine weeks ahead of us, especially in Reading. I am looking forward to working with all of you this year and I want to thank you in advance for sharing your student with me.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The last week of school is FINALLY here!!! I know you are looking forward to the summer break as I am. I will be spending time with our grandsons and do some traveling. I will also take a class this summer.

We will have an end of the year celebration the last day of school. After lunch the students will have ice cream sundaes. The 2nd grade teachers have decided to provide all supplies needed for the party.

This week we will continue to work on multiplication and 3 digit addition/subtraction. Please continue to work on these skills at home. The students’ Reading Eggs and IXL accounts will be active all summer long.

There will be a recommended summer reading list sent home with the report cards and the students are each receiving some new, free books. Please make sure they read as much as possible. They have made tremendous gains this school year!

Thank you for sharing your students with me this year. It has been a privilege. Best wishes for the rest of their academic careers.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders continue state testing this week. Please reinforce with your students what I have told them about the importance of them being quiet in the hallways.

Please check that your student is doing their homework.
Important things to know about homework are:
• Please make sure your child reads every night (preferably to you) for 20 minutes. This is in addition to the 20 minutes of homework allowed by the school district. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school.
• 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.
• The children now have 12 activity choices.

 

In Reading we will continue to work on all the skills I’ve listed previously.

In Science this week, continue learning about plants.

In Math we will review for the last benchmark test. We will continue to practice adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. If you could practice adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers with your student it would be a great help. This is a VERY difficult skill for many students.

In Social Studies we will finish the unit on economics.
Sincerely,

Mrs. Cindy Martie
