Just a few things to report on for next week.
I'm finally getting to know our students. I'm learning more about their personalities along with their strengths and weaknesses.
Next week I will give a few more standard based assessments for report card purposes.
Next week, we take a week off from Benchmark. We will start Unit 3 on October 25th. Our next unit is called Animal Adaptations.
Re: Scholastic Book orders: Please read the message to the right...
For additional help with Benchmark, go to Google Classroom, then go to Classwork, then go to ALL topics, then click on Benchmark. There you will see vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and other additional resources.
FYI Parkmont students will have a Halloween Parade. The Parade is just for students and staff. The parade itself will take place around Parkmont School. Students may wear their costumes to school. I will NOT help a student put on their costume (school policy). It will be October 29th.
This day is a short day where students will be dismissed at 1:33 PM.
Don't forget, your child can go to Khan Academy to get additional math practice on the same concepts we are covering in class. Students log in with their Google Account (this is not on Clever).
We continue with Unit 2 in math next week. This unit continues with multiplication and division but focuses a lot on one and two step word problems. Some of the vocabulary they will learn is Fast Array, Tiling, Square Numbers, Order of Operations, Mental Math, and Function Table.
Please visit the Clever website that your child uses in class. From there you can go to ThinkCentral and see the math book your child uses in class. Take a look at the history website called TCI as well.
We will continue in our history book on the unit Geography of the World.
HISTORY BOOKS CAN BE TAKEN HOME AT ANY TIME AS LONG AS THEY ARE RETURNED THE NEXT DAY.
Much of our science curriculum will come from a program called Mystery Science. We continue on the unit "Forces". Mystery Science video links can be found on Google Classroom under CLASSWORK, then Topics. You can also find videos and a more detailed schedule of the science program by clicking on the link button from this site, and then clicking on Science. We are on the unit called invisible forces and this week watched the video on friction. The next two lessons will be on magnets.
Please note there is no science book that goes with our science curriculum. The district still has not adopted a science book for any of the elementary grades.
Please reach out to me with any questions!
