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 October 23, 2017

This week is the start of Red Ribbon Week, and it will run through Tuesday, October 31.

Students may show their school spirit on Wednesday by dressing up in NS clothes.  Thursday they may wear their favorite team shirt/jersey.  Friday they may wear jeans before changing into their Halloween costume.  Please remember to follow dress code, but still have fun.

Friday the parade will start at 2pm and will find its way to the high school stadium.  Classroom parties will follow.  4th grade has collected $5/student to help defray the cost of snacks.  If you haven't sent yours in, please do so.  Students may also bring in candy/snacks, but remember it must be store bought.

Our spelling test will be Thursday on list 4.  Students took a pre-test yesterday, and have had the list since last Friday.  On the flip side is list 5, so please do not throw it away.

In grammar, we are learning compound sentences, which is a continuation of subjects and predicates.  Students MUST know how to find the …
