Starting this week, we will only have 1 list with no pretest. All students are on the same list. The words on the spelling list will tie to the reading and phonics we are learning in class and to the phonics portion of students reading tests.
Scholastic Book Order
The next flyer will be coming home the week after we get back from Thanksgiving. You can visit the Scholastic website and use code: QBYVR at checkout or return the flyer with order money to school. Make sure to check our class wish list and consider donating one or more of those books to our class library. The next order will be placed Dec. 8, 2017.
Help Our School
Our school needs two new digital cameras to help create our yearbook. Visit our project site by clicking here . Please consider donating or sharing this link to help our school out.
Update (10/24/2017): WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL! THANK YOU ALL FOR SPREADING THE WORD!
Graded work comes home weekly, please make sure that you check your child's binder each night.
You will receive a slip of colored paper with the DFA score on it. Please look at those carefully.
You can also setup a FOCUS account to see all grades anytime. Contact the office to do so.
It is very important that students complete the math homework as practice of the lesson. In addition I am adding many links to my math page, so that additional instruction and practice can happen at home. Khan Academy is an excellent site that uses videos to teach math concepts. They have added Eureka Math/Engage NY videos, so students can relearn the lesson of the day if needed. Please look at the math page of my website to find the links.
Compass Learning: (*flier coming home today)
This is the BEST online resource to help your child improve their STAR scores. Just 20 minutes a day can have a very big impact.
Math Parent Tip Sheets
On the math page of my website I have uploaded and linked all of the Parent tip sheets for the module we are working on. Please view or print for advice on helping with homework.
