It is beginning to look and feel like fall. With fall comes,  parent teacher conferences. . Please remember to schedule an appointment with me. 

6th grade Math – We have just completed our third test. Most of the students did very well. There were a few that struggled with the test. As a class we did review the day before the test. This also reflects on the success of the students.  Attendance, completion homework and asking for help will be very important for the success in math. 

6th Reading

We have started with our reading series Journeys. Tuesday, September 30th the students will be taking their fourth test, over lesson 4, The ACES Phone.  They will answer vocabulary and comprehension questions over story. They will need to understand vocabulary strategies with word that have de- and trans-prefixes. The targeted comprehension skills that will assess will be story structure, alliteration and style and tone.  Ask your son or daughter what is alliteration??

Ask about the novel, Granny Torrelli Makes Soup, by Sharon Creech. The students truly enjoy this story.  They have an opportunity to read aloud the story, practice fluency and disclose their understanding of the story’s characters and the events.

First, Second and Third Grade

Please try to find some time to reread the materials that I send home with your child. Remember that practice makes permanent!!!

           

God Bless you and your family,
