Good Morning Parents,

Yesterday, your child brought home a Fluency Passage. (A Pet of My Own) Please time your child for one minute to practice. Record the numbers of words read in the 1st column, the mispronounced words in the 2nd column, and the correct words in the 3rd column. To get the words correct just subtract Words Read from mispronounced words. I have attached an additional recording sheet in the tab Home Learning for extra practice. Tonight they are to answer the questions and be timed again.

For Social Studies the map I sent yesterday is for reference only. They will need to know how to label a blank map just like the one sent home, with the continents by Friday.

Have a great day!
Thank you!

Hello parents,
Your child is taking home their blue folder today. This is their Reading folder. In it, you will find their assigned Home learning for Reading. There was a mix up with this week's list of spelling and vocabulary so I have posted it to the home learning tab of this website. I will provide a hard copy later this week. Also, I have decided to post the weekly letters instead of printing them in the tab labeled Weekly Reading Letter.

If your child's folder is missing the sheet protectors , please try to provide them by the end of this week.
Please note several students are not coming prepared to class, please check your child's pencil pouch the night before and make sure they have at least 5 sharpened pencils each and every day.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Mrs. Y
