Parents let's educate our students. Self Regulation is a vital component in learning how to get along with others and be successful. Take a minute each day to share strategies and ask your child how they would rank themselves.

Students must READ quietly in the mornings while in the cafeteria, or eat breakfast Quietly. IPADS need to remain in their backpacks. Thank you

WEEKLY Procedures:

Math: the WEEKLY Sharon Wells Packet (problem solving, skills, and review will be due on Mondays). I will always complete several parts with students to ensure they were given examples.

Vocabulary Work:

Monday: Students separate the root, suffix, and prefixes. Identify part of speech and determine the meaning (Part A). Study definitions by making flashcards, or other method.

Tuesday - complete sentences and identify parts of speech (noun, verbs, adjectives, separate subject and predicate, label Subject and Predicate)

Wednesday - define the suffix, prefix and root word stems

Fridays - QUIZ and turn in packet for a completion grade (automatic 100 if all parts completed)

Grammar WS: all packets are due by Friday (5 sheets a week. 1 per day)

Class time will always be given for each of these assignments. However, some of it must be completed at home especially if students need additional time to process information. All packets will be given to students either on Monday (vocabulary and grammar) or Thursday (math).

Students may choose to work ahead but NO PACKETS/WS will be accepted early. Students must be responsible and keep work in their appropriate folders.

Awareness Wednesday!

Wear YELLOW on Wednesday for Childhood Cancer Awareness.
