A reminder that students are dismissed this week at 1:15 PM. We will be finishing up Chapter 3 in math this week and taking the test. On Thursday we will have our first Reader’s Theater production in the classroom. Please come to our room following the blacktop announcements after signing in at the office. The presentation will begin at 8:30 in room 408.
Students may have come home smelling a little vinegary from our experiment in class today. There is no official math homework as they took chapter 3 check up quiz today. You are able to see their scores if you wish to log into Think Central through the single sign on the Chula Vista elementary school district website. If they have not finished the addition section on Xtra math, that is what they should work on this evening. They could also work on the red monster assignments in Ten marks which will help them build some multiplication skills for chapter 3.
On Tuesday this week we go to the Camarena library so be sure to have students return their books 1st thing Tuesday morning. We are beginning a science unit in which students have began an experiment in class. Tuesday students will take a quick quiz to see how they’re progressing in chapter 3 beginning multiplication. Thursday starts the minimum days please be sure that your child knows how they will be going home when dismissal is 1:15. The book fair set up in the multipurpose room is open only before and after school. The PTA informed me some parents had inquired about a wish list for our class. There were two book titles that I would like to get a set of six to be used for book clubs. Thank you. I look forward to meeting with you all next week during conferences.
Students have monthly and quarterly goals in Achieve 3000. For the month of August students should have completed 12 achieve 3000 articles in class at 75% or higher. Those students who met their goals received John Incredible Pizza Company certificates today. Quarterly student goals are to raise their Lexile level by 50 points. Three students also achieved that goal.
Wednesday students will be taking the Go Math chapter 2 test. They will have to turn in their math books to show completion of all class and homework.
For parents who have not signed up for conferences yet, a fluorescent pink sign-up sheet will be going home on Wednesday. Please mark your first, second, and third choices. I will then send home a confirmation slip.
Due to the shortened week, and beginning of a new Benchmark unit, there will be no language arts “Flash” homework this week. It will resume next Monday.
On Thursday students were given a check off sheet to show what assignments they still need to complete before we finished chapter 2 in math. We will be taking the test on Wednesday. The test is almost identical to the review which is the last few pages in the math book. In addition to their Go Math there were two assignments in Ten Marks on picture graphs and bar graphs.
We finished our first unit and benchmark and will begin unit two on characters on Tuesday. You can see how your child did on the end of unit one test by logging into benchmark through Chula Vista Elementary school District single sign-on.
