We're onto week 6 and officially in the second half of first quarter. Progress reports were distributed on Friday. To see the breakdown of grades, be sure to check Parent Portal. Directions to gain access to Parent Portal were given in the blue folder on Curriculum Night. If you need further assistance, please contact the office.
This week we will continue sight words. Students received their new set of sight words today and will be tested this Friday. Please note that this is a change to previous weekly sight words where students were tested on the following Monday. Our updated sight words routine will be for students to receive their new words at the beginning of the week and be assessed on the words on the following Friday of the same week. Students who receive below a 70% accuracy rate are expected to study over the weekend to be retested on Monday.
Students were sent home today with a bag of base ten tools. We are continuing to build our "backpack of strategies" for adding up to 100. They are to help students with their math homework today of regrouping while adding. Some students do not need to use this tool-- but I gave all students the opportunity to take the manipulatives home for help. Please have students bring back the bag to school as we continue our unit.
Short updates for this weeks. Please check our classroom website for the latest announcements and posting of daily homework.
