Tuesday, January 16th
I have a few important announcements for you.
1. The students completed Study Guide #2 today. I collected them after we corrected the problems and I highlighted the areas on the test that each student still needs to practice. ASK your son/daughter to show you their study guide and explain anything that is highlighted. We still have another study guide to work on before our test next Tuesday.
2. This afternoon the students were given 45 minutes to answer questions on the article "Move Your Muscles". We read this article together last week in class, so they should RE-READ to find the answers. One set of questions is multiple choice (and a few short answers) and the other set of questions is short answer and fill-in-the blank. Those students who did not finish the questions in class today were asked to bring the article and questions home to complete tonight. They may use this time as their 20 minute reading time if they prefer! Please have them complete this on their own. If they have difficulty understanding what the question is asking, I don't mind you helping to clarify this.
3. We created all of our poems today and I sent copies home for the students to try and memorize before we film tomorrow and Thursday! They seem excited to present their skits! Some of the students will be bringing in extra props for Thursday!
4. IMPORTANT - WE WILL BE ADMINISTERING THE MATH PORTION OF THE WINTER AIMSWEB TESTING TOMORROW MORNING FROM 8:00 - 10:00. Please make sure your child is rested and arrives on time to school! This is much appreciated. If we have a late arrival due to the impending snow storm, we will not be testing.
I think this is all for now!
