As June arrives, we officially stop the homework since there will be no more spelling tests. HOWEVER, I greatly encourage you to continue having the children read nightly, use Reading Eggs and iXL, and play math games throughout the summer so as not to lose what we have worked so hard to gain.

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 32Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
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 31Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)

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.Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
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 28Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
Please note we will be having our long math benchmark test Tuesday and Wednesday. This test requires much stamina and attention from the students. You can help them by ensuring they get a good nights sleep and breakfast each day. Also use the old tests, study guides, STAR, and iXL to review all skills. They will be required to solve all the problems on each equality question. Time to the half hour still seems to be an issue for some. As is sorting, particularly when shapes are sorted by more than one attribute.

Well, we shall try this again. This week we continue exploring equality and word problems in math. iXL has great practice
sessions to help make this topic more understandable. In reading we continue our search for root
words and vowel patterns. Science will finish plants, while social studies will cover George Washington
Carver and Eleanor Roosevelt.
