Test week has arrived!
An ENGLISH homework assignment that will go home Tuesday and is due Friday. Please make sure to have your child finish and return. It is a math assignment. Look for it TUESDAY.
We are testing like crazy. We also have an assembly Thursday and on Friday, don’t forget — ALL DAY reading for INDOOR CAMPING, a celebration of the school-wide fundraiser Read-A-Thon. We’re going to play major catch-up on Read Aloud that day, too. Students can bring boxes for building forts and stuffies.
Students have made enormous progress in reading comprehension but we still have more work to do.
We are working with centimeters
Working in the “Writers Room.” Students team up to generate ideas for a story for a “shared writing” experiment. It’s a very specific project. I’m sure they can tell you about the story about a teacher who really wants a burrito. When not working on the community story, students are working on independent pieces. We’re focused on structure and causality (logic).
We’ve also been reading the play Stone Soup. This week we will read the Bremen Town Musicians. This is for fluency and focus.
Please study for Passport Club, which will be next Wednesday, January 31.
