    This week, there is a book to read every night.

    This week is a conttinuation and finalization of a LOT of assessment. 

    So far this month, your child has completed:

    5/1-5/5 DIBELS Assessmenta (phonics, sight words)

    5/8-5/13 Reading Comprehension Assessments

    5/16-5/20 4th Quarter Math Assessments, Begn Writing Assessments

    This week, we'll finish Writing Assessments and End of Year Summative Math Assessment

    For homework, I'll send ONE worksheet per night to target each subject area, just to keep challenging students so they do not lose any skill they've worked so hard to master. This mind-set will hopefully carry over into the summer, when they read every day to avoid loss in reading levels/skills.  

    Monday: Math

    Tuesday: No Homework!!! Field Trip today!

    Wednesday: Writing Prompt: If I could have super powers, I would.....

    Thursday: Reading comprehension

    1st and 2nd grade words are also on the website, so you are encouraged to keep working on word mastery and as students meet 100, 150, 200, and 150 goals, I will continue to hand out treasure box items!!

    This week, I am only assigned a book for students to read all week. By Wednesday, students should read books to parents without aisstance. If students become bored with the book, feel free to substitute a library book or a personal book!

    This week is a LOT of assessment. For this reason, students are having to sit quietly for longer periods of time because each assessment is 1 on 1. I have not assigned additional work because of the extra seatwork students are doing in class.

    5/1-5/5 DIBELS Assessmenta (phonics, sight words)

    5/8-5/13 Reading Comprehension Assessments

    5/16-5/20 4th Quarter Math Assessments, Begn Writing Assessments

    5/22-5/26 Finish Writing Assessments, End of Year Summative Math Assessment

    Next week, I'll send one page per night of homework, just to keep challenging students so they do not lose any skill they've worked so hard to master. This mind-set will hopefully carry over into the summer, when they read every day to avoid loss in reading levels/skills.

    Testing is almost here!!! Please use this week to push sight words and make sure your child has been exposed to the newest word list I sent home last week. The words on this list (and this week's homework) appear often in C and D level books. Next week is the final testing (End of Year) for all students. They will test with another teacher, not myself! Please talk with your child about being confident, sounding out unknown words, speaking clearly, and not being shy! Instruct them to do their best, even though I am not the one assessing them.

    Monday: write each word once and make up an oral sentence with each word. Say the sentence aloud to an adult.

    Many, asked, Sometimes, says, Sticks, kind, anything, here, come, my, see, jump, mom, puddle, monkeys, and dance, snowman

    Tuesday: write each word once and make up an oral sentence with each word. Say the sentence aloud to an adult.

    Pool, bike, flowers, seven, baby, monkey, mom, farm, here, bear, hungry, cow, goes, horse, said, little, outside, away 

    Wednesday: write each word once and make up an oral sentence with each word. Say the sentence aloud to an adult.

    Looked, cannot, bird, asleep, lizard, meow, shouted, plane, giraffes, crane, sky, goes, skyscraper, teddy bear, mouse, store, snow

    Thursday: write each word once and make up an oral sentence with each word. Say the sentence aloud to an adult.

    going, where, home, went, box, naughty, good, car, duck, stay, downstairs, won’t, inside

    Friday: write each word once and make up an oral sentence with each word. Say the sentence aloud to an adult.
