Happy Sunday! I hope you had a great weekend! It was great seeing everyone at conferences last week! We are back to our regular schedule this week.
I hope you enjoyed the Fall Festival on Friday! I am looking forward to taking the winner of the silent auction bowling! 🙂
I would love for a copy helper to help make copies tomorrow (Monday)! Please sign up on Shutterfly or email me if you are interested in coming in to make copies for me for 30 minutes! Thank you!
Please note that the Social Studies Test was postponed to tomorrow (Monday)! Students should study all the notes for the Declaration of Independence in their S.S. notebook. I have also added 2 resources that will help your child study under the S.S. section on my Learning Links page. We are moving onto our next unit in Science starting on Wednesday!
We are celebrating Red Ribbon this week! A red flyer was sent home on Friday in your child’s HW Folder. Please review the flyer to see the daily theme. Please encourage your child to wear red tomorrow!
Any graded papers that were sent home on Friday were included in Quarter 1. This Friday, you will receive a new progress sheet for Quarter 2 in your child’s Friday Folder. All graded papers that will come home will be included in Quarter 2. Please review all important dates/events on the bottom of the Weekly Quarter 2 Progress sheet.
We will have Adventures in Art on Thursday! Please sign up on Shutterfly if you are interested in volunteering.
A parent letter regarding Read Theory was sent in your child’s HW Folder last Wednesday. Students have glued their username and password on their password page in their agenda. This week, I will be assigning Read Theory for HW instead of our weekly Reading Log.
Students are encouraged to log into Studies Weekly at home to complete readings and activities related to the topics we have covered thus far in Social Studies. Please make sure your child is logging in using their 365 username (first.last) and the same password they use to log in any computer at school.
Halloween is around the corner and our classroom candy bucket is running low! If you are looking into getting rid of any extra candy from Halloween, I would love some donations for our class bucket! Thank you! 🙂
We have begun our multiplication unit in Math! It is very crucial for students to practice their basic multiplication facts on IXL, flashcards, or any multiplication links under my Learning Links tab on my blog. Students will be moving from multiplication to division in no time. Division will be even harder without getting the basic multiplication facts down. I can not stress this enough!
- Please visit my website and click on “Multiplication Songs” under the Learning Links tab for students to practice.
Scholastic Reading Club orders should be placed online. When placing an order online, please enter our class code (MJN93) so we can get free books to add to our classroom library! Please place all October orders by Tuesday, 10/30/18. Thanks for your support! 🙂
– Friday Folders: Please clean out the folders, sign the progress sheet, and return the folder with your child on Mondays. Please do not sign the progress sheet for future dates.
– The “At Home” Reading Log must be logged and signed daily. Students will show their thinking at the bottom of the reading log at the end of the week. Reading logs will be due on Mondays!
– It is very important for students to review notes nightly as we take new notes daily. This beneficial strategy will help avoid last minute studying and reduce stress!
