It was great meeting with all of you. Based on my conversations with many parents, I have decided to reinstate the reading log. As a reminder, the I'd Rather Read log/response sheet is handed out every Friday, and it is due the following Friday. It should not be looked at as Thursday night homework. Instead, students should write the paragraph on the weekend or early in the week so that they can edit it and do their best work.
This week's spelling words will come from the Poseidon word part list. They should know the spelling and meaning of the words.
They should also be preparing for the Poseidon set quiz, which will be on Thursday. They should study the flash cards that were given to them and know the meanings of the word parts.
I have asked each student to bring in two empty 16-ounce water bottles by Monday. If Monday is not possible, please send them no later than next Friday. We are starting Life Science the week of March 17, and we need them for an activity.
The Smarter Balanced Assessments are computer based and most questions will not be multiple choice. We practice typing at school, but to really improve, students need to practice at home, too. Here are some resources.
Have a great week,
