Each Friday students will receive a weekly homework letter. It should be returned the following Friday morning signed by the parent/guardian. The letter sets out the homework focusing on each student's level in reading, spelling and math. It will include Achieve 3000 articles at each student's lexile, a spelling path which the student has pretested into, and math practice.

Students can practice the math we are currently covering by using either www.frontrowed.com (class code fgig5j, Number Operations-Fractions) or www.mobymax.com (kids have their own passwords and have been shown how to log in).
We are working on the Fraction and Decimal success squares.
This quarter we will be focusing on historical fiction in our fiction reading. Using RIT band academic vocabulary and strategies, students will read and work with concepts at their personalized level through realistic fiction texts.
We will also be using Achieve 3000 for lessons on main idea/supporting details, cause and effect, inferencing, compare and contrast, author's viewpoint and sequencing in non-fiction passages. Achieve is personalized to each student's reading lexile.
Students are being pretested and will be placed on a path that matches their current ability. Students should practice their assigned words both in literacy workshop during the day, as well as at home as part of the personalized homework letter.
