Week of September 12, 2016

Spelling:  List 1 3x each due Wednesday #1-20.  The 1st time should be in cursive and the other 2 times should be in print.  If you can do all 3 in cursive, GO FOR IT!  Test is Friday.  List 2 pretest is Monday.

Grammar:  Declarative & Interrogative lesson this week.  Test is Thursday.

Reading:  Because of Winn Dixie test is on Friday.  Study vocabulary from the story.  Be sure you understand sequencing and what it means to summarize.

Parents, a PALS packet is being sent home on Friday with your child.  Occasionally a packet will be sent home and this will reinforce the skill that is being taught in the reading story.  It is to build a partnership with parent/child and returned the following school day.  This week's  PALS is due Monday September 19.

Students have been super busy collecting money for the Boosterthon.  As of this morning, my homeroom had $25/lap raised.  We are very close to the $30 level as a class, which is a classroom surprise snack provided by me.  If the school raises $20,000, the principals will dress as queens and get pied in the face.  Let's keep making those donations!

Tomorrow is the Fun Run.  Students are encouraged to wear sweatpants and the field trip shirt.  If a student doesn't dress for the Fun Run, they must be in dress code school approved clothes.  NO JEANS!  The Fun Run will take place in the afternoon for 4th grade.

Grammar test is moved to Tuesday.  Students may or may not have 20 sentences to do for homework.  Depends on how their class period goes.  Study subject/verb agreement.  If they do not agree, then the verb needs to change.  Ask student to find the subject then the verb to reinforce subjects and predicates.
