Every week your child will read an anchor text as well as a paired text. The anchor text is used to work on fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary skills and strategies. The paired text may be similar in theme and or genre. This text will reinforce vocabulary usage. Student understanding of the anchor text and vocabulary will be assessed on Fridays.
Students will also work on grammar and spelling throughout the week. Assigned spelling words will also be assessed on Fridays.
Chapter 1 is about Numbers to 10,000. The student workbook pages were sent home on Wednesday as a review tool. Please review and practice similar problems with your child to help him/her prepare for the upcoming math test. On Tuesday, 9/24/19, we will be taking our chapter test.
This week’s lesson on forces was about the force of friction. Specifically we considered friction in the context of solving the mystery, “How can you slide faster down a slide?”
Students in grades 3-5 have an opportunity to join Mr. Hoffman’s Honor Choir. Tryouts will be held Thursday, September 26th, right after school. Typically, Mr. Hoffman will pick a familiar song, such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, for the students to sing aloud as their tryout. Tryouts are very brief, and students may leave right after their turn. Mr. Hoffman will notify students who made Honor Choir by Monday, September 30th.
Congratulations to Alejandro, Bentley, Charles, Kayla, Cecilia, Lilly N., and Katie for their summer reading! Keep up the great work!
YEEEEE-HAWWW! It’s our Annual Membership Drive!
This year’s theme is “Western Roundup”! Each classroom will have Wanted Posters on display on the Big Bulletin Board in the Main Hallway. At the end of each week from now until the end of October we will add one Western Stamp for each PTA member that joins per classroom! There is also the option to donate extra money to the PTA to purchase an extra Western Stamp for your class “Wanted Poster”! As an additional incentive the PTA is offering the top three competing classes a prize!
The classes with the most Western Stamps (highest percentage of Western Stamps according to how many students are on class roster) at the end of October will receive a prize!
The PTA knows it takes a village and we need more involved parents! You don’t have to be a parent of a student to be a member (grandparents, aunts, uncles etc) are also eligible to become PTA Members too!
