Parents,

Just a reminder that the Q2 goal is READING STAMINA.  Urge your child to read daily and read more and perhaps even read to you!  Students who read at least 5 books or accumulate 25 points on ReadnQuiz will be invited to a Hot Chocolate Social at the end of the quarter.

Have a fantastic holiday break with your child.  We have not left them without work to do!  Students will keep track of their reading over Winter Break on a Reading Log.  Remind your child that they are working toward the goal of 5 books/or 25 Reading quiz points to attend the Hot Chocolate and Pajama Social at the end of Q2.

Here is an overview of what we will be doing this week in our CORE SUBJECTS:

Reader’s Workshop–This week, students will work in all five stations of The Daily Five:  Read To Self, Listen To Reading, Word Work, Guided Reading, Reader’s Response.  Please allow students to bring headphones or earbuds to school so they may listen on Epic Books.  Students will be required to write weekly Reader’s Response letters about their IR books as assessments.  In addition, students will take a reading quiz after they complete their IR book.

Our Annotation objectives will change weekly as we begin to refine our thinking as readers.  This week, we will focus on annotating QUESTIONS  from the text in our IR books.

Math-  This week in our Unit 4 DECIMALS, students will extend their knowledge of place value to the thousandths place and all decimals.  Please regard the link below for parent resources, as well as copies of home links:
