This week has been a bit CRazY!!  We have been trying to do some computer testing, there is going to be a Positive Behavior Pep Rally tomorrow, and it is a 4 day week!

Please remember you will only find my homework for your child on here.  You need to check their other teachers' blogs as well.

Spelling:  Today, students in periods 1 & 2 took a spelling pre-test on Because of Winn Dixie.  Students have the list of spelling words along with the vocabulary for Because of Winn Dixie.  Period 3 will take the pre-test tomorrow, Thursday.  All periods have homework due Friday.  Students are to write #1-20 of their spelling list 3 times each.  Test has been moved to Tuesday.
     Example of homework layout:
          admire     magnet
          admire     magnet
          admire     magnet
If a student earns an advanced (#1-25 all correct), he will not have homework or need to take the test. If a student earns a proficient (#1-20 correct), he will have homework and need to take the test. Homework is to reinforce the correct spelling of the list words.

Reading: Students will be starting Because of Winn Dixie hopefully this Friday.  We will listen to the story and continue with the skill of sequencing.

Grammar: We will be discussing 2 types of sentences: declarative & interrogative.  These are not new to students (telling & asking).

Assessments will be next week.

We will be having whole class lessons, group work, and independent work.  Students will be working co-operatively with others.

Pictures will be September 12.  Forms went home last Friday.  You may send the forms in and I will hold them.

PTO is providing free field trip t-shirts to all students.  There are a few students that have not returned that form.  Please do so ASAP!

Students have been working very hard the past 2 weeks.  Passing through the hallway to get to their next period is going well, lunch could be a bit quieter, recess is coming along well and classroom behavior is good.  Keep striving to do your best and CROSS THE LINE!

Have a great week!

Week of April 17, 2017

Spelling:  Students received their final spelling list today.  It is a cumulative review of previous lessons with the bonus words being words from lessons we haven't covered.  If the student didn't earn an advance or proficient, then they have 3x each, cursive #1-25.  This is different...1-25!!  Test is Friday.

Grammar:  We are discussing subject and object pronouns, demonstrative and reflexive pronouns. We completed workbook pages 261 and 268 today.  Test is Thursday.  The students will list the 4 types and the pronouns that follow each type, as well as identify the different types of pronouns in the sentences.

Reading:  Review page 269 in the workbook.  We will be having a sequence assessment on Friday. There is nothing to study, just be sure you know your time order words and can follow directions.

Social studies bottle buddy is due May 11th.

AR goals need to be met.  Keep reading!

Friday is a dress up day for $1.00.  Information went home last week.
