This Week in Our Classroom
We are collecting supplies during September and October. Thanks to everyone for sending supplies. It is so important to teach our children about the importance of giving to those in need.
Congratulations to Maya for meeting her September point goal in Reading.
English and Writing
Don't forget Wednesday's test! This test will cover spelling words for week 7, notes from English section of the binder, and writing questions from practice in class.
Be sure to study our class poem! The deadline is Oct. 4th.
The Current Event project is due by Friday, Sept. 27th. This counts toward an English homework grade.
My students are now typing their spelling words as part of the weekly test. This can be practiced at www.spellingcity.com.
We will still write sentences weekly with our words.
We are reading Bud,Not Buddy. This historical fiction explores the life of Bud, a ten-year old boy who is searching for his father. We are also learning about the Great Depression and its impact on our country.
Please don't forget that students are assigned 20 min. of reading on Mon, Tues, and Thurs nights. This is to be recorded on the reading log that should be returned every Friday.
The 3rd and final AR test should be taken by Friday, Oct. 4th.
