Also, please speak with your chlid about behavior expectations in the classroom. Many students are making poor choices with their behavior and this is causing us to lose valuable time in the classroom. Class dojo has been updated throughout the week and you can contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child.
Information about book reports will be coming home on Monday. Your child will need to pick out a book to read and will have 3 weeks to complete the report.
A Peek at our Academics:
Math: We are working with word problems. There is a test on Monday. Next we will work with decimal computation. There will be a test or quiz on this next week as well since most of the computation issues have been addressed when we studied whole number computation.
Science: We have begun our study of the ocean. There will be a test Thursday.
Reading: We finished our non-fiction selection "Escape from Alcatraz" and the students were really into it. Ask them about it, I'm sure you'll learn some fascinating information. I was so impressed with their desire to learn more! Many students went to the library and requested books about Alcatraz so they could learn more about it!
Writing: We have finished with the types of sentences. Next week, we will be working on pre-writing.
