Please feed my fish!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It is amazing how it is almost October! The quarter will soon be over.

Last week I assigned our first book report which is due October 7th. They are to read a short chapter book and I will hand out a book report sheet for them. Our first one will not be a written summary.

Scholastic book orders are due Wed. September 29th. If your child has lost their book order magazines, you are able to order on line. I have set up the parents' order on line for Scholastic. If you do, you will need the following activation code: GXB6Q You will have access to all the books available to order from. You will need to pay with a credit card on line. Your child's books will arrive with the classroom's book order.

TEST SCHEDULE:

Friday---Reading "The Emporer and the Kite"
Friday---Math Division

Please feed my fish!

We have survived progress reports! Don't worry, there is still time to improve on all grades for the first quarter. The students will arrive to new locations in the classroom on Monday. I have moved all the desks. We were getting a little too comfortable with our neighbors. Hopefully, everyone will be fresh for about a month.....then we'll move again. I've got to keep them on their toes.

My electric pencil sharpener does not work very well and the students have had to use small hand held sharpeners at the back of the room. In order to keep work flowing, I have told the students that when their supply of pencils run out, they are encouraged to get a good mechanical pencil with lead refills (#7). Hopefully, this will eliminate the constant movement during work time.

Wednesday -- HALF DAY.

I would like to thank Erik for giving such a wonderful speech at our Heroes' Night presentation. He made me so proud and I know his family was also! Great job Erik!

Our students will be taking home a progress report this week. Please make sure you review their grades and sign the bottom so the students can return them to me. If you see any grades that are a bit shocking----be assured that they have until October 14th. to improve on them.

Please continue to practice the multiplication table with your child. We will have a test on Friday on multiplication with two digits times one digit.

We will soon have a test on the Northeastern states and capitols. We are also covering the three branches of government and their duties.

We have started our first experiment on Friday. We are testing three types of wraps; baggies, tin foil, and wax paper. We will eventually figure out which one of these has kept our slices of bread the most fresh.

I would like to thank all of my parents for making sure that your children are doing their homework. We have had great success with homework.
