Milestones

April24

Milestones are coming and the students ARE prepared!

I do not want them to stress! 

If they want some practice and time to familiarize themselves with the online tools and the format, they can visit the sites below as well as log on to Office 365 and use the resources in our Writing notebook.

Some reminders for parents:

  • Testing dates:

    • ELA Monday 4/29, Tuesday 4/30, and Wednesday 5/1

    • Math Monday 5/6 and Tuesday 5/7

  • Please have your students at school and on time each day of testing.  

    • Unless your child is sick then keep him/her home.  They will have an opportunity to make up missed tests.

  • Get a good night’s sleep.  Remember these kiddos still need 10-12 hours of solid sleep EVERY night.

  • Eat a healthy breakfast.  Stay away from sugary breakfasts that will bring them down before testing is over.  

  • Encourage your children each morning.  Tell them they are smart and remind them that they CAN do this!

  • DO NOT STRESS!

March28

Permission slips for our next field trip came home today! Please fill it out and send it in tomorrow with payment if you can.  I don’t want it to get lost or misplaced over Spring Break!  I am looking for a couple of chaperones for this trip.  Please email me if you are interested in being a chaperone.  You will need to meet us at the museum and pay for entrance there.  

Math:  We are studying decimals and fractions.  Practice reading, comparing, adding, and subtracting both fractions and decimals. 

Social Studies: Civil War-I have uploaded some sites and activities into their Inquiry folders in Office 365.  Students can also access their newspapers 23-31 as a reference. 

Milestones will not begin for 4th grade until April 29th.  Please take advantage of the practice website and activities I mentioned on the letter that came home with report cards.  Students should practice general test taking strategies as well as reading the questions carefully.

Reading: Please be sure students are reading EVERY day for at least 20, but a minimum of 30 minutes is recommended to build stamina at this age.   After your child reads, he/she should summarize and make inferences or predictions about the text.  Continued and Consistent practice with these “Good Reader Strategies” will build performance on reading tasks.
