We are off to an amazing start of the year! We have some information we would like to share with you:
Showcase Night/Spaghetti Dinner: Thursday, November 14th
Book orders are coming home today! Book Clubs orders are due by 09/24/19. You can place your orders online at scholastic.com/bookclubs using our class activation code: GXKR4
This code is active at all times. So, if you are in search of a gift or a great book for someone but you haven’t seen a flyer come home in awhile, feel free to still log on and use this code. Another great feature if you log in online, they have thousands of additional books including a variety of clearance books available for purchase. The books that you order help us get new book club sets to use with our book clubs.
Students have been assigned book clubs and have selected their book to read. These clubs either meet M/W/F or T/Th, depending on student need. On the day that they meet with their book club, students will have an assignment that includes chapters/pages to read and a question or two to answer in their reading notebooks. The assignment is due the next time their book club meets. Students do have about 45 minutes each day to work on their assignment. Some parents prefer that their child bring their reading assignments home each night to work on; please let your child know if that is your preference. Please ask your child what book they are reading in book clubs, what day they meet and what their assignment is.
Words work is coming home today! We have assigned each child a words list based upon their pre-assessment. Each week on Friday, your child will be coming home with a new words list and a new words work sheet. You will notice that the words are organized in a pattern, which your child will identify as they work with them. The words work sheets are due back and will be collected every Friday. Ideally, the words work will be done as it is indicated on the sheet: a little bit over several days. If you have any questions, please let us know!
Math is rocking in the 3-5 room! After each lesson, students are given a page in their workbook to complete along with an opportunity to work on iXL or complete a workplace with a partner. This week each grade level has had several new workplaces (games) added to their math repertoire. Ask your child what workplaces they have been playing!
We are working with maps in a variety of ways! We can’t wait to show you our GeoTour during Showcase night on Thursday, November 14th!
