I hope we are all busy working at our first fund raiser! Remember, for every five cards a student sells, their name will go into a drawing to win a lap top computer! This Subway card is such a great value.


WHAT'S UP THIS WEEK?

SPELLING
Just a reminder that every student receives a new spelling work sheet every Monday. It is due every Friday for a grade. Please check your child to see if they are working on them. Our spelling tests are every Friday.

LANGUAGE
We have completed Unit I and are reviewing the chapter. Our test will be on Wednesday. It will cover everything on pg. 24-25 of our language book.

We have almost completed chapter 3 in our math books. We have covered equations, addition, subtraction, and multiplication. We will have a test on Tuesday which will cover multiplication. On Friday we will have a cumulative test on chapters 1-3.

We will have a geography test on Tuesday.

READING
We always begin a new story on Monday, out of our text book. Our tests are taken on Friday.

August 23, 2010

Our first full week of school has been completed! Our students are a little groggy. We will get them back into studious shape in no time!

Thank you so much for those of you who brought in all the supplies needed for our classroom. Our days work so much easier with the proper supplies.

The students took home the Student Handbook on Friday. Please take the time to read and go over the book this weekend so you and your child are familiar with school policies and proceedures. You and your child need to sign the blue form and return it to school.

WELCOME BACK!

Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun summer. I would like to welcome all of our Heritage family back to school. We have entered our first 2 days of school. Time to get to serious work now. Starting Monday, August 16, we will begin our normal schedule.

Keep in mind that DIBELS testing will be conducted this week in between regular instruction. My students will receive a new spelling list of 25 words every Monday. Their phonogram and spelling tests will be conducted every Friday. The results of these tests will be passed back the following Monday. I will always post the new spelling list on this site on the weekend before the school week.

Reading tests will also be conducted every Friday. They will have the full week to read our short stories to prepare.

Math tests will be given after completing chapters or concepts. This is usually completed within 5 to 7 days.

I am looking forward to this new school year with great expectations for a successful year!
