Diving into Curriculum

It was great to see you all at Back to School Night! We had another successful week in our classroom with the start of our Structures of Life Science Unit and the completion of our initial reading assessments. We're learning more and more every day!

Here are some important updates for next week:
  • Scholastic Book Orders went home this week. Please visit the resources tab for all the details.
  • We'll have our first Math Test this week, so review all math homework and the pretest that will go home this week. The students have been struggling with reading numbers in the hundred-thousands.
  • Our first regular spelling test will be next Friday. The spelling list will go home on Tuesday.
  • Help your students think of someone they can write to in another state for our Flat Stanley Project
  • Picture day has changed to September 25 and is updated on our class calendar. Be looking out for updated instructions in the next few weeks.
  • There are a few behavior contracts that still need to be signed and returned. Please check your homes and return them this week.
  • We're still figuring out the times for the Art Docent to come and I will update the volunteer form next week when it's locked down.
  • The Math Facts will be posted mid-week to the math section of the resources tab.
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and don't forget to take the new poll!
