- No Homework over the Thanksgiving Break. I will send and post the spelling words and math on the Monday that we return to school.
- No School Nov. 20th-24th
- Field Trip Morean Arts Museum - Glass Blowing 1/19
- Field Trip Crowley Museum & Nature Center 4/13 - A Day in the Life of the Florida Pioneer
The Challenge Words are bonus words! The 15 words are the ones that are required to practice and take the test on. The 5 challenge words are optional and are worth 1 bonus point each, but DO NOT count off if they miss them! If your child gets every word right they can get a 105 on the spelling test. Your child must complete 4 spelling activities a week. The Spelling Menu with activity choices is in your child’s binder.
I will send the book home every day with your child. PLEASE make sure the Math book is sent back to school every day!! Your child needs the book to complete the math in class. Please DO NOT work ahead in the math book. If we have not completed the Guided Practice and Independent Practice in the book your child has not been taught how to solve the problems yet. ONLY complete the assigned homework pages after the Guided Practice and Independent Practice have been done. Tear out the completed Math HW page and place it in the front pocket of the binder to turn in.
Your child must read 25 minutes 4 days a week and write the title of the book in the Student Agenda on the correct date (parents initial please). Please have your child read aloud to you. Reading aloud to you will allow you to listen for errors and help them become better readers. I encourage you to read aloud to your child as well, but to make them more involved and to boost their reading have them finger point to the words as you read. You will be amazed at what they pick up when you do that!
Homework is due Friday on arrival. There is a 15 point deduction for every day it is late.
