Week 6

October 8th, 2017

Sadly, our reading of Wonder comes to an end this week. It has been an enjoyable book to read and has been an outstanding example of how we are to show kindness and compassion to others in this life. We will be celebrating the main character’s birthday Tuesday. (If any parents would like to help with that please email me.) Also there will be a cumulative test on the book Friday.

Along with the progress reports last week, I sent home a rubric and summary of the Wonder project. It is due Nov. 3. Students have a creative license to complete the project as they see fit, but all the requirements listed on the form should be included.

We are currently working on week 6 roots and vocabulary words. For homework this week, students are to choose how they would like to record the roots (ex. foldable, flowers, flashcards, or tree). This should be turned in by Friday. They also need to be making flashcards for the vocabulary words weekly and collecting them with the previous weeks words as they will see them again.

Week 5

October 2nd, 2017

Interim reports will be sent home Wednesday along with all the graded materials thus far. Students are required to return the signed report AND all the work Thursday. This will be recorded as a homework assignment due to its importance.


Monday: Study for Story Elements test Wednesday and start your roots and vocab cartoon.
Tuesday: Study for Story Elements test and continue cartoon.
Wednesday: You will have a test on story elements. Continue working on cartoon.
Thursday: Your Science Roots tree should be complete so you can study it for the quiz Friday. Also study vocabulary words by making flashcards, etc. These quizzes are cumulative, so save all your word cards and keep studying the ones from the past.

This week we will continue reviewing social studies and science skills in preparation for the end of the year test. SS will focus on famous Americans and holidays, while science covers natural resources. In math we will continue graphing and also review all previous skills taught.

I am seeking volunteers to help make Author’s boxes for the students books they have written this year. If you can help or donate Contact paper, please let me know. Thank you.

Many exciting things are happening this week! Tuesday is our spring play. Please join us at Kings Fork High School by 6:15. They have worked hard, should be a good show. Wear white tshirt and jeans. Friday is field Day. Please be sure to put sunscreen on before coming to school. Again wear white tshirts and comfortable shoes. We need volunteers to donate water bottles and ice pops. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you.hmk week 32

week 31

April 28th, 2015

My apologies for the lack of email yesterday, however the students had the words written down and knew what to do for homework. The copier was broken, but the new sheet will be sent home today. As this is the fourth nine weeks things are getting very hectic. Please ensure your child’s success by continuing to hold them accountable for reading, homework, and using the computer resources available. We still have much work to do and little time to fit it all in.

In science we will continue to explore matter, while in social studies we learn about saving and spending. In math we are learning the many different ways to measure and graph. The students have decided to save their pennies for a great cause. One of our TEAM member’s church sends boxes to the soldiers overseas. We would like to collect our change to see just how fast it adds up. If everyone gave a penny a day, we would have more than $6 by the end of the month. You would be surprised how far that goes when helping others. Please help us, help them. Thank you.hmk week 31

Welcome back. Hope you had a relaxing spring break and are ready to blast through the final nine weeks. Please note the very important dates listed on the homework sheet. This week the students will take their final Map Math test. Continue to go over all skills taught and make sure they get lots of rest and a nutritious breakfast Friday as this will be their final score for the year. Tuesday and Wednesday we will take our Reading Benchmark.

This week we will introduce measurement while continuing to reinforce money. Comprehension skills are the main focus in reading. Students should be reading a book on their level nightly and answering detailed questions in order to practice inference, main idea, sequencing, and important details. In science we begin to explore matter learning the difference between solid, liquid, and gas. Social studies will cover savings and spending.

week 28

March 30th, 2015

This week we will be taking our science (Tue) and social studies (Wed) benchmarks. These tests cover all skills from the entire year. However, the main focus will be animals, plants, and American leaders. Please review the study guides, refrigerator cards, old tests and quizzes, and use STAR on the SPS website.

Friday will be our Spring Fling. Hopefully it will actually feel like spring! We are in need of plastic eggs, candy and trinkets to fill them with, a volunteer to donate 6 hard boiled and 6 raw eggs, pink felt, and Easter grass. We could use some extra help at 2:30 also. Please let me know if you can help. Thank youhmk week 28
