Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter week of 10-29-18

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | October 28, 2018 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is the last week of the first marking period. The students will take their Science benchmark on Friday, and the Social Studies benchmark on Monday, November 5th. Please help your child review for these tests. They will cover all the things the students have learned this marking period. The science department has provided us with a very nice study guide booklet which I sent home last week in their binder. I have reprinted study guides for the Social Studies benchmark. They will be in the binders on Monday.

I’m attaching another copy of the Trunk or Treat flyer that is happening on Tues.

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 for 20 minutes. This is in addition to the 20 minute district homework policy. 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 the 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 review magnets and matter and start our unit on weather.

This week in Math the students will work on comparing numbers, ordering numbers, and place value, and continue to review past skills.

In Social Studies we will review citizenship and Communities Change Over Time.
