Progress Reports are here.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU DID NOT GET A PROGRESS REPORT.  They were put in ALL Friday Folders.  PLEASE SIGN AND RETURN ONE copy of the Progress Report.  Do not worry if you see your child has a standard that is PARTIALLY MET.  That is to be expected at this time of year.  If you look at the report, you can see if I indicated that I would like to meet with you for a Zoom/in person conference. 

The comment section on the Progress Report lists your child's DISTRICT i-Ready score in Reading and Math.  The scores indicate what grade level they scored at, at the time the test was given.  Thus, any score at grade 3 or higher is a good sign.  This same score can be found on your parent portal.

LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER  YOUR CHILD FOR PANTHER PROWL.

LINK TO PANTHER PROWL

The Panther Prowl is coming up: Friday October 7th.  Our class runs from 9:00 - 9:30.  Students are supposed to wear green (optional)

I am enjoying listening to students present their Running for President report.  Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into helping your child with this assignment.  I want students to practice speaking in front of groups of people.

 

To check your child's unit 1 math test score, go to Clever, ThinkCentral, then go to My Scores.  There you can not only see the score, but if you click on the actual test, you will be able to see the questions, your child's answer, and the correct answer.  There is also a standard breakdown of your child's unit 1 math test in the Friday folder.

 

For those parents who want to give their child additional support anytime during the school year in reading and math, please have your child go to GOOGLE CLASSROOM and click on the link to the category (topic) KHAN ACADEMY.  I have posted multiple assignments on Khan Academy in both reading and math.

Please read below to see what we will be working on in reading, science, history, and math.  PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REINFORCE THE CONCEPTS WE ARE LEARNING BELOW AT HOME.

PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE AND ONLY EMAIL ME OVER WEEKENDS IF THERE IS AN URGENT EMERGENCY.  THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.

We are on unit 2 in Benchmark: Ways Characters Shape Stories.

The spelling words for all three weeks were sent home in the Friday folder.  Students should study from this list for spelling tests on Thurs.

Some concepts students will be learning are: identify key events and summarize, analyze characters, distinguish literal from nonliteral, analyze fables, myths, folktales, compare/contrast characters, shades of meaning among related words, how illustrations show mood and character.
