Here’s What’s Going On!
First and Very Important:
Study today/tonight for our economics test tomorrow! Lots of vocabulary terms to know and explain.
Halloween Party is October 31, from 2:20 – 3:20 pm.
Costumes can be brought to school in a bag. We will dismiss for recess that day at 2 pm so students may go out for recess and/or get their costumes on for the party. Parents are welcome to set up for the party at that time. Please, no weapons, clowns, or ultra scarey costumes should be worn at school. Thanks!
Math: Unit 1 test is done. Data binders should have come home for parents to peruse. The goal behind these binders is to help your student self-monitor their growth through the year and feel proud of their accomplishments. We are on to Unit 2, which is multiplication. Watch for parent explanation sheets of methods to come home. Hopefully, we may get a few student explanations filmed for the blog too!
Reading: Q is the level your student is considered proficient at this time of year. Be sure your student is exercising their reading muscles nightly for at least 20-25 minutes!
Writing: We have turned in a published personal narrative and now we are on to our favorite! Writing realistic fiction! Students are off and running, developing characters and believable plots for their stories.
Science: After our econ test, we start our science unit off with the study of matter! We’ve got lots of great hands on experiments coming up!
Just want our parents to know what a great group of kids we are! We have been getting “Outstanding” Awards from Mrs. Reagan and other teachers, and lots of compliments too! Everywhere we go, we want to show that we are “Gentle Giants” – leaders who make good choices without needing a lot of reminders.
Have a great few weeks!
