In case your child misplaced his/her NEW FORM, you may access a copy in the HW tab.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Bauza & Mrs. Toledo


April 15, 2014 -

Click on Reading and Lang. Arts tab, click on Author Study (third to the last), print and complete using information gathered from research on Mary Pope Osborne.

2.  Also, "Flat Stanley" or "Esteban el plano"  was sent home today with your child.  We were unable to upload the template to our website yesterday.  Color  your Stanley for home learning.  Glue Stanley on a piece of construction paper for sturdiness. (The construction paper was also sent home with your child today.) Please bring in your Stanley/Esteban on THURSDAY.  We will be using him for a classroom project/unit.
Thank you!

April 14, 2014 - Reading Home Learning

1. Research MUSCLES, BONES, or BRAIN.  
Write two or three facts on what you selected to research.  
Write this information in complete sentences.

2. Research Faberge Eggs and answer the following questions in complete sentences.
What is a Faberge egg?
Where were these eggs first seen?
Who was the man who made these eggs?
What were these eggs make of?
What did each egg have inside?


April 11, 2014

Dear Parents,

Hope you are well.  Here are some reminders for next week...

1.  Today your child took home one plastic egg.  This egg needs to be decorated as a FUN FABERGE EGG.  Decorate your egg so that it is silly or fancy!  Have fun! This egg is due on Monday.  On Monday, your child will present their egg to the class during Spanish class in Spanish.  Mrs. Bauza's homeroom will be taking their egg to Art class on Tuesday.  Your child may use any item that you have at home to decorate his/her egg.  For example: buttons, yarn, ribbon, gems, beads, stickers, beans, pasta, popcorn kernels, paint, or glitter.  You may search the internet for ideas.  "Glue Dots" are an excellent tool to use in order to glue the decorations to the eggs.  They can be bought at Office Max or Office Depot.  Please be creative and have fun! 

2.  Please practice breaking apart in subtraction with your child.  We have been practicing this skill in class this week. This is a difficult skill and subtraction strategy to master.  It is important that your child learns to use this strategy.  It will help them do mental math as well as prepare for other math skills they will learn in higher grade levels.  You may access the math book on-line and review page 231.  Next week, we will continue working on Chapter 5.

3.  Next week, we will be reading "Esteban el plano"  or Flat Stanley in Spanish.  This is a chapter book.  Our class has already read two chapter books in Spanish this year.  Your child will be "borrowing" a copy to take home each day next week.  Please read/review the chapters read in class with your child each day.

4.  Our field trip is next week, April 16th.  Please have your child wear their school uniform and comfortable CLOSED shoes.  Your child must bring their lunch to school that day.  Please pack their lunch in a GALLON SIZED ZIPLOC BAG.  Please label the bag with your child's name.  All items in the bag should be disposable. 

5.  On Thursday, your child will be participating in a SURPRISE friendship project!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. B and Mrs. T

READING PLUS REMINDER:
Home Learning assignments for Reading Plus are Tuesdays and Thursdays
Please check your child's agenda daily where daily assignments should be WRITTEN.
A session of Reading Plus consists of the iBalance and Read Around components. 
If these components are completed, a check mark will appear on the main page next to each component.
If sessions are NOT completed, the assignments will be carried over to the following week.
It is NOT recommended to have your child do more than one session (iBalance & Read Around) a day.
Please adhere to the assignments as given.
Remember, both Mrs. Bauza & I assign Home Learning MONDAY - THURSDAY of a regular five day week to allow ample time on the weekend to have your child complete ANY incomplete assignments on FRIDAY, SATURDAY, or SUNDAY.  This is done to give your child additional time, if needed, before ALL assignments are checked on MONDAYS.    On weeks with HOLIDAYS, we use our discretion to make the necessary adjustments to assignments to support the needs of the students.  Home Learning "mirrors" the lessons taught in our classes.  Home Learning is intended to offer practice on the same skills the students are expected to show mastery of in classwork or assessments.
Our Home Learning Policy may be accessed on our Parent Document and Forms tab.

Here are a few tips regarding "Thinkcentral.com":
1.  You may log-in and view the Student Edition workbook used in class.  Please ask your child which lesson they worked on today.  You may review this lesson with your child.
2. The Practice Workbook has been uploaded.  This is the SAME workbook your child uses for HW.  This is meant to be a "replacement" in case your child misplaces his/her book/page.  You can print-out these pages.
3.  The Intervention Workbook has been uploaded.  This workbook is meant to be used in conjunction with the day's lesson and HW, ONLY if your child needs it.  This is a supplement or resource for skills your child needs help with.  These pages may also be printed.
4.  In order to find the appropriate page for the Intervention book, simply log-in and click on "Table of Contents".  Click on the topic being taught in class. 
5.  The glossary has been uploaded.  Please keep in mind that ADDITIONAL vocabulary for each chapter may be assigned, that may not be in the glossary.  Your child will write these words and definitions down in class.
6.  The Animated Models are a wonderful way to have your child review skills.  Just click on the skill your child needs to work on.  These activities are interactive.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me.
Thank you!

2.  Students should ALWAYS have their Home Learning folder and Home Learning Agenda in their book bag.  No exceptions please!
