Each test is worth 10 pts and will be taken as a grade.(50 points total) Your child will also be given the option to reflect on their book instead of using AR.  Your child will be given a 4th Quarter Reading Log in their planner.  Please monitor your child's independent reading by visiting our AR program online from home and checking the reading log.

Pretest/Spelling City Activities/Google Spelling/Post Test

Math :
 Chapter  9: Decimals/Fractions Test Wednesday, March 21st 
Please remember...  The front of our student practice page will be used for guided/extra practice with teacher.  The back page will be used for a grade.  (6/6=100%, 5/6 = 83%, 4/6=69%, 3/6=50%)  Students need to do their best each day to keep up their grade!
 Please be sure your child shows their work on lesson pages and refers to their BIG Math Book for help.  No work shown results in no credit and a note in the planner, so this is very important.  Students can also use their Math Notebook to help them with their homework. This notebook will include sample problems from the lessonl.   If you ever have a question about math, please email me. 

 Please continue to practice multiplication and division fast facts at home.   Students will struggle if they do not master their fast facts. Their assignments will take longer to complete, and their grade will be affected. 

Science: Week 9 Science -  We will continue to journal our Tomato plants.
Soc Studies:  Week 15 - 
Our lessons will cover a two week period and a quiz will be taken at the end of the two weeks. 
Your child will keep the Studies Weekly Newspapers in the back pocket of their red folder.  Please take the time to look over and possibly read some together. Your child cannot lose these, it will be used to take grades, and I do not have extra copies.There is an online component to Studies Weekly that they can log on to at home/school.

Please review papers coming home in the daily folder with your child and talk to them about their progress. Be sure your child completes any unfinished work and returns to school the next day, this is very important to our class routine!  We do not want to spend too much time trying to locate work or making extra copies. NEW For 2nd Quarter:  No name papers will have to be redone or a zero will be entered as the grade.
