I can't believe we are approaching toward the end of January already!
By now, your child should have received a report card. Please keep the report card and return the envelope signed for semester 1 and 2.
I had to reteach rounding last Friday because of the quiz I gave last week that showed majority of them needed support. We will wrap up on partial differences today because they did an excellent job on partial sum yesterday. I will be giving a quiz on that today. Unit 6 will be this Wednesday, 1/24. A paper newsletter will be sent home to you and your child's Tuesday folder as well as a few graded papers.
If you need a flier to purchase a recorder please let me know. The cost of this instrument is $5. You can pay online or send in a form of a check.
Please send a lanyard of your choice before Friday. Let's get their professional name tags going! They are also excited about wearing it, because it looks "cool" and it represents who they are! :)
I am in the process of making them a H.W. folder and revising the reading log to make it simple. Inside their new homework folder, it will contain a monthly looking calendar to record their reading logs and high frequency words from level 1 to level 6 that they need to know by the end of 3rd grade. I will casually test them from time to time on Fridays. They will also put their math packets and other school assignments that need to be completed in this folder. Some kids like binders and some didn't. It's okay, I always say there is more than one way of organizing your stuff.
I distributed a level 2 spelling/high frequency list yesterday that they need to study for. I will retest a few kids who missed one or more from level 1. My goal is for them to be 100% knowledgeable and successful of words from level 1 to 6 to spell and write successfully and independently by 4th grade. I will need your support and help at home by holding them accountable to spell. If you are tech savvy, the kids love Kahoot. It's an electronic quiz community where you can have a family game night and create a game with the list of words from the list or "Go NOODLE" also has a game where the kids have to spell out each of the letters with their body. If you have siblings close to age or older, have them study together. Find a friend, a neighbor, have fun competing on how to spell each words!
Six Flags Reading Program is giving away free tickets for kids who have read for fun, 6 hours or a total of 360 minutes. You can ask them to write the books that they have read in their reading log and you can sign it! Let's get you some free reading tickets for your children!
Let me know if you have any questions! Have a WONDERFUL week! Stay dry and drive safely!
