Important Notes:


Students should be reading nightly and logging minutes on front of the monthly reading calendar.  They must also fill in the log on the back giving the date, title of the book, and the exact page numbers read.  The total number of minutes read must be tallied on the front and the calendar signed by parents.  These are due on the first school day of the next month.

In addition to keeping the reading log, students have a response to reading project to complete each month.  The project for the month of November  is "Cereal Box Book Report."  Instructions were sent home with students on Friday, Nov. 10th.  Projects are due on Thursday, Dec. 7th.  Be sure your child is reading a "just right" book on their reading level.  It must be an historical fiction book.

Weekly homework IXL sheets are assigned on Monday and are to be brought back the following Monday.  I will take the grades off of the computer program and give an average for the 3 grades.  Students can work up to 90% for complete credit, but the last 10% are challenge questions.  If they can handle the challenge, they should take it!

I also assign Math and ELA IXL skills in class to dovetail with concepts I am teaching in class.  I don't expect everyone to master these, but I do expect them to be focused and on-task.  These skills are periodically quizzed for a grade.  You may work on some of these at home as time permits, but it is not a requirement.  It is often a good idea to see how your child understands given concepts. 

Check out the Spelling tab for online spelling practice of weekly list.  It's a fun and interactive way to study for weekly spelling tests!
