Happy new year! We’re starting 2017 off with a lot of NEW, including our homework.
Word Work: Jan Leveled Word Work Menus Homework
Word Work homework is now leveled to your child’s specific word work group. Each student knows which group they are in and should ONLY complete homework from their menu. These will be given out in class, but above is the link for reference.
Reading Log: Main Idea Reading Log
We are working hard on the concept of main idea and details as the data has shown it’s been our lowest standard across the board. Each night students should find the main idea of their reading along with “evidence” or details to support it. Also, students will now calculate the elapsed time that they have read to add in a cross-curricular element! Only estimating to the nearest hour is required, but encourage them to challenge themselves by finding the elapsed time to the nearest half hour or minute.
Newsletter: Monthly Newsletter Jan
