January 13-17

What’s Coming Up This Week

Math: Lessons 57-60, Test

English: Compound sentences with direct objects

Reading:   I am reading Home of the Brave as a class book.  If your child is absent he or she will need to get caught up with the rest of the class.  The book is available at the library or as an Ebook.  Also, I told students last week that they needed to finish up their current AR book by today, because they will begin reading books with their soon to be assigned reading groups and will need to stay caught up with their group.  I have several students who did not complete their AR book.

Vocabulary:  Complete Unit 8. Test on Thursday.

Spelling:  We will work in spelling groups and continue with Spelling City and Pearson Realize online assignments. Our test will be on Friday.

Extra:  Please review and return report cards this week.  If you would like to discuss your child’s grades or progress, please let me know.
