We are really starting to get settled into a daily routine at school. Everything seems to be going well and homework completion has almost doubled.
Students took a test today on place value, rounding, multi-digit addition, multi-digit subtraction, and converting yards to feet. The grades on the test ranged from 91 – 100.
Students are learning how to write paragraphs and use dialogue in their narratives. The big thing to remember is that every new speaker gets a new paragraph and what the character says goes in quotation marks.
We’ve spent the last few days writing summaries of our reading and paragraphs about our thinking as we are reading. We’ve learned that authors don’t always tell us how characters feel, but show us through the characters words and actions. Additionally, we’ve made connections, inferences, and notice the author’s craft as we’ve read.
We started learning about Vermont history this week. Our first article was about the Native Americans that lived here, before European settlers and the lifestyle they led.
Students have been working on homophones this week and will continue with homophones next week.
I will notify you via email if your child has missed more than 1 unexcused homework assignment this week. Homework completion went from 11/25 last Tuesday to 19/25 this Tuesday.
I’ll be having some surgery done next week, so I will be out Tuesday through Thursday. Mrs. Merola will be the substitute.
