October 22-26, 2018
Test Retakes-Please note the download about our test retake policy at the bottom of this page.  Also, please keep in mind that test retakes are intended to be given periodically and should not be a regular occurence for students.  If that is the case, it would appear that students are not practicing/studying enough and/or taking this seriously.  Please encourage your child to study properly and with intent the first time so s/he doesn't need to retake tests over and over again.
Reading/Language/Spelling-For the next few weeks, as a class we will be reading/discussing, and working on skills that tie in to the novel "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl. Some skills we will be working on include character traits, idioms, and similes. Please make sure your child shares with you the information regarding the "Character Traits Pumpkin Project," which was shared and explained in detail long ago. The final project and the paper are due October 29.  We will finish our Language Unit, with a test planned for later this week.  Students will practice grammar and proofreading skills, with a DOL (Daily Oral Language) quiz planned for Friday.  There will not be s Spelling list or test this week.  
Math-Students really seem to be grasping the concept of multiplying 2-digit by 2-digit numbers.  Some objectives for this week include using regrouping to multiply 2-digit numbers, and using the strategy draw a diagram to solve multistep multiplication problems.  I cannot stress enough the importance of students practicing and memorizing multiplication facts to help them succeed.  Much of what we do in Math has the expectation that students have a strong multiplication foundation.  We will take timed multiplication quizzes throughout the year.  Currently, students get one and one half minutes to do approximately 30 multiplication facts problems. The next multipliction quiz will be on the facts of 10.
Science/Social Studies-In Social Studies, students have been learning about the northeast region of the United States and we will finish that this week.  Their Northeast Regions completed packet is due this Wednesday..We'll be learning about Thomas Jefferson and Lewis and Clark's Expedition. In Science, students recently began the new unit "Sense Receptors" and will do an experiment involving smell this week.
Assignment Notebooks-Students are expected to get their assignment notebooks signed daily, once parents have checked to make sure specific work has been completed.  Please note that sending in a note if your child forgets to bring home his/her assignment notebook does not count as a "signature."  We are trying to continue to make sure students are responsible by checking for everything before they leave, as well as having parents see what is due the next day. Thanks for your understanding.
Web Page-I will try my best to update our class web page every weekend from my home.  It is an expectation that students/parents will regularly read the page to help them stay informed about what is going on in the classroom and at school.  As a reminder, on Fridays I will have students write "Read our web page this weekend" in their assignment notebooks.
Recycling Contest-It is never too late to start saving plastic bags for our annual recycling contest!  Thank you for doing so and for sending them in with your child.
