​I am so proud of my class for continuing to work hard on following classroom and school wide expectations. We are working towards earning our next "Compliment Party!"  Keep up the great teamwork boys and girls!  

In your child's planner will be written the daily homework assignment along with the spelling words for the week. Please be sure to sign your child's planner everyday. Planners are are great way for us to communicate along with Classdojo. We are using Class Dojo points as an in class program.  If there is a concern, I will send you a private message.  Please don't hestitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Reading:  We will be reviewing all of the skills taught in Unit 3 this week.  There will not be a Unit Test on Friday due to the fact that we need to give the CCR Test and we don't feel the children have had enough practice with this assessment.  There will not be a spelling or grammar test on Friday.  

Phonics:  review phonics for Unit 3

Vocabulary words: Review vocabulary for Unit 3

Grammar: Review verbs (tenses, singular and plural, and linking verbs)

Writing: The children will be writing an expository story using t​​he Writebright curriculumn.​


Math:  We completed Chapter 5  which focuses on 2 Digit Subtraction.  ​The Chapter Review Test will be given on Monday and the District Test on Tuesday.  We begin Chapter 6 later in the week which focuses on 3 Digit Addition and Subtraction with and without regrouping.  The children will be learning different strategies to add and subtract 3 digit numbers. 

Also, encourage your child to go on Fast Math and Compass at home to help build fluency with math facts.  

I have also added the link for Sumdog. This is another fun website for your child to practice math skills. Y​our child's logon information can be found in your child's planner.

Science:  We will be learning about the life cycle of plants and animals.

Homework ​​​​​​​​
Monday-Spelling Activity and math
Tuesday-Grammar and math
Wednesday-Reading paper and math
Thursday-Grammar and math

Your child is also responsible for practicing the weekly spelling words as well as reading an AR book each night.  I also encourage all students to go on Compass Reading and Math for additional practice.


     ​Please encourage your child to be reading and testing on AR books everyday. He/she needs to read each book at least 2-3 times before taking an AR test. Every child has the time in class to test on an AR book if they use their​ time wisely. A label with your child's individual point goal for the 3rd quarter has been placed in your child's planner. The total points your child will have to earn is for a 9 week period.  Each child begins the new quarter with 0 points.  Your child should be at 30​% of his/her goal by Friday, Jan. 26​th​​​​.​

​​     Our class is working hard on achieving AR Certifications.  At the end of the school year, if a student has earned 100 total AR points for the year they receive an awesome trophy!​​

Have a great week!
