Welcome to Second Quarter!

Hello Kiddos and Parents!

Welcome to Second Quarter!

*I have fielded a few questions regarding grades as they stand now (11-7-17). I input more assignments than have been assigned as of today, trying to plan ahead. If your student’s grades are lower than previous times, please do not worry. Worry ONLY IF they did not get FULL credit on their homework from last week. Homework overall was lacking it’s usual efforts and wonderfulness. I told kids that they could turn in their work up to 11-8-17 (that is tomorrow) all week in class if they did not turn it in ON TIME last week. If they do not, they will earn a zero for last week’s work.

* Please remember to send snacks to class  for your student for the mid-morning break, along with water. This can be a water bottle that can be refilled as necessary or a plastic water bottle.

We are still in need of BOX TOPS.  We need 215 more to dress down. We can do this!!

*The Fall field trip permission slip was sent home today (11-7-17). I need this returned by THIS Friday please. Parents, you can join us if you want to. Come sign up at the office and pay for the movie. You can MEET us at the theatre on NOV. 21st around 9 am.

*This Friday is the LAST day of clusters for this round. NOV. 17th is the showcase from 4-6 pm in the gym. COME and CHECK out your kiddos work then.

*THANK YOU Great Artist parents who come and help out! YOU ROCK!

*There has been a small issue with being prepared for PE on Tuesday and Wednesdays. PLEASE ensure you kiddos are dressed appropriately for PE when they arrive at school. Tennis shoes and modest clothing that they can move in is necessary.

*The new book report was assigned, Historical Fiction. The kids are more than aware that they are to be reading now for a good week now. Please ask about what they are reading .

*SPELLING LIST, UNIT 10:

unpleasant, absent, practical, neutral, turbulent, rival, rational, instant, talent, partial, label, legal, cruel, distant, tunnel, typical, channel, ignorant, central, material

MON: alpha-order, 5X each, TUES: definitions and sentences (we have Great Artist on Wednesday afternoon and will lose work time. Sentences will be expected to be done on Thursday at the latest).

*MATH: still working dividing decimals. It can be difficult. We just started division of decimals so little by little it will become easier.

*GRAMMAR: Nouns and Pronouns, ask to see their class work.

*SCIENCE: Planets

*HISTORY: United States’ regions

*WRITING: ask to see their warm-ups for writing .

*REMINDER: each student needs to keep a paperback dictionary in their locker to use in class weekly.

*IF your kiddo is sick, keep them home. Flu season has hit! UGH! Their work will be kept for them to get when they get back or to be picked up. Sleep is the BEST medicine. They will be missed but their sick germs won’t be. You can email me and let me know they are sick also if you want to.

*We are in need of the following classroom supplies:

college ruled notebook paper, #2  pencils, Clorox wipes, colored copy paper (please no red because it is hard to read when printed on), twisty crayons and twisty colored pencils.

Thank you VERY much for ALL you do to help out our classroom in infinite ways!
