We will try to operate as normal as possible, but we also have the spirit week dress up:
      Tuesday:  Dress like a wacky tourist or wear a Hawaiian shirt
      Wednesday:  Dress like a duo (peanut butter- jelly, Tom & Jerry, or just twins!)

      Friday:  Wear patriotic clothing or NS spirit

Miss Brobst's class has a grammar worksheet for homework.  It is reinforcing imperative and exclamatory sentences to prepare for Wednesday's test.

Mrs. Herring's class has a scavenger hunt for Lewis, Clark & Me.  Answers can be found in the story.  The backside has vocabulary to be used as a review for Thursday's test.

AR goals were stapled in your child's assignment book.  October goals are 5 points or higher.  Goals need to be met by October 30th.

Good afternoon!

Monday will be a FREE dress down day.  We are promoting Bullying Awareness by wearing blue...blue shirt, blue jeans, blue sweats, blue socks, etc.

PALS packets were also sent home in students' Friday folder.  This weekend's activity is focusing on Author's Purpose.  Parents & supporters, please remember to sign off on the last sheet so your child receives credit.  We are encouraging parent/student/school relationships.

AR goals were set for the month of October.  Please have your child check their AR account or see me Monday.

Book orders were placed today.  As soon as I receive the books, I will be sending them home with your child.

Have a great weekend!

Today we started Unit 1 Lesson 2 in reading and grammar.  We will be reading Lewis, Clark, and Me and working on author's purpose and suffixes.  Students will be working with the textbook, workbook, interactive notebook, groups, and whole instruction.  In grammar, we will be learning the next 2 types of sentences:  imperative and exclamatory.  The assessment will include all 4 types of sentences (declarative, interrogative from last week).

Spelling homework was assigned tonight.  Students that have homework were given a sheet of paper already laid out for them for the 3x each.  #1-20 need to be written.  Test is Friday.

October 2 is a dress down day...wear a blue shirt, any bottoms.

We have been working hard on our Positive Behavior plan.  Students have to earn 3 stamps from staff or faculty for following the goal of the week.  This week's is PARTICIPATION.  If a student earns 3 stamps by the end of the day on Thursday, they will be eligible for a reward Friday.  Eligible students will be given a reward ticket.  That reward ticket MUST be given to the teacher Friday during homeroom.  We are expecting students to be responsible, so they have to keep track of this.

We are still working on CDT tests in the classroom, which use the Chromebooks, we are finishing up on DIBELS testing, and we are finishing up on our fluency tests.

Students will get Unit 1 Week 2 spelling list and reading vocabulary list.  There will be a spelling pretest on Monday, with the test following on Friday.

AR goals are to met by September 28th.  We will be having the 4th grade reward on the 29th.  My 3 classes of students' AR goals is a minimum of 5 points.

Students will be enjoying a …
