  • Reading/Spelling

    This week we will continue to study reading skills and strategies with many different books genres.

    Every Monday we will take a pretest on the Spelling words. If your child passes the pretest with 100%, they do not need to take the test on Friday. They will complete the dictation sentences.

    If there is no school on Monday, the pretest will be on Tuesday. 

    Spelling packets are due every Friday. 

    I would also encourage going on Study Island and Reading Eggs, which can also be accessed through my online resources. 



  •  Math

    The class is enjoying Rocket Math. The students work at their levels starting with +, -, and x. The students will also be working on math computation using Math Facts in a Flash. Please practice your math facts every night. There is a quiz every Friday on the Common Core morning work math. We will finish up the year with Units 6 and 8, which we have already started during PARCC.  We will be studying times 12 multiplication facts these next couple of weeks. Each student should know mentally their times 0, 1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

    Please go online and practice your math facts using Xtra Math. You can access this through my online resources tab.
