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:
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!
