I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a short week! Yes, Friday is a report card day for teachers and thus there is no school for students. That means this is the last week of the quarter and students need to make sure they have everything in. Ask your child if they are caught up on Skyscrapers, Fiction Box reading, Pronoun and Adverb work, Industrial Revolution work, and their Math. Some students are finding themselves falling behind as they socialize. I thank you for your help in stressing the importance of work sessions as a time to develop our knowledge and understanding.
This week we will have some extra time to finish up work that is missing but will continue in our math groups, working with Montessori materials as well as a few items from GoMath. In language we will tackle prepositions and continue with our reading partners on Industrial Revolution books. In science we are working with 3-part cards as we study salmon. I am hoping to arrange a guest speaker on this topic in the coming weeks. If you are an expert on salmon and would like to share, please let me know! Have a story to tell of salmon? Come on in!
Tuesday the 18th is Alaska Day and Monday next week is PJ day (wear PJ’s to school). If you have not already signed up for parent teacher conferences please do so online at http://www.asdk12.org/parents/conferences/ Don’t forget to select grade level as “mix”. If you feel that you cannot make it for these times, please contact me so we can try to arrange something that will work for both of us. Students are invited and encouraged to be part of this meeting, though it is not necessary depending on your own personal preferences and availabilities.
