Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for week of 11-5-18

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | November 3, 2018 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Wednesday, we begin the 2nd marking period. The students were supposed take their Science benchmark on Friday. However, due to glitch in the online assessment program they will take it on Monday. The Social Studies benchmark benchmark will now be taken on Wednesday, November 7th. 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 a few weeks ago in their binder. I have reprinted study guides for the Social Studies benchmark. They were put in the binders last Monday.

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 begin our unit on weather.

This week in Math the students will work rounding numbers to the nearest 10.

In Social Studies we will learn about Veteran’s Day.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie
