A message about our Nightly Fluency Passages

Practicing with fluency passages is an important part of helping your child improve with his/her ability to read fluently.  If your child makes many errors while reading or the reading does not sound like a spoken conversation, he or she needs to practice reading fluency.  Early readers spend a great deal of mental energy sounding out (decoding) the words on the page.  Their reading often times sound robotic - not fluent.  As a child learns the phonetic rules and can apply them with ease along with having automatic recall of all sight words, reading begins to sound more like fluent reading.

  •  FREE TAG DAY

From Mrs. Post

During the month of October, your child is going to be saying the rosary with us in class.
I have a class set of rosary beads, however, your child is free to bring in their own pair with your permission. I do not want Grandma Mary's crystal beads if they are cherished by your family or have monetary value, in case they get lost or broken. We will also start chapter three (all about Mary), but we will take 2 or 3 weeks to complete it due to saying the rosary. The children will have notes on the rosary, and we will have a test at the end of October on it. 

Tests this week

TUESDAY- MATH CH 2- ADDITION

Wednesday- Grammar quiz singular/plural noun

Friday- Spelling, vocabulary, Reading tests

THURSDAY- SCIENCE- There will be a science test on Thursday, Oct 19. The test will cover the second half of our weather unit, and some review from earlier in the year. A study guide will be sent home during the early portion of the week. Students should study types of matter, freezing/boiling points, types of clouds, seasons, and types of storms. They should also review basic vocabulary from their interactive notebooks in regards to weather.

HOMEWORK-

Your child will have a minimum of 40 minutes of homework every evening.  This may or may not include the required 20 minutes of reading a night.  I will be assigning math, spelling, reading log, and fluency every evening.  Most assignments will be posted on my website at the beginning of each week.  **Important** If your child is having difficulty in a certain subject, please inform me via email or a note.  Please do not correct homework errors.   This is how I can evaluate your child’s understanding of the assignment/lesson.

Remember these steps when solving word problems:

Visualize and ask yourself as you read the problem- 

1)  What do I know?
Write that down
Ex:  Mrs. Jones found 50 red and 40 yellow m&ms in her pocketbook.

2) What am I trying to find out?
**Write that down
Ex:  Altogether, Mrs. Jones found _____ m&ms in her pocketbook. 

3) How do I find it out? (what operation?) 
Write that down
Ex:  ADD

4) Questions to ask yourself:
 Should I make a pattern?
 Should I draw a table?
 Can I draw a picture?
 Is there more than one step?

5) Check your work
