Each student has an individualized plan for spelling based upon an analysis of a spelling assessment that determines what spelling practices are needed.  Every night they have a 'Sort' to practice and record in their WTW notebooks. Please be sure that your child is completing these sorts. 





Reading Calendar: Read 30 minutes, 20 times during the month, fill in the monthly calendar with  book title and pages read.  On the back of the calendar write a one sentence summary about what your reading each evening.  Finally, have a parent initial the date. This assignment counts as a reading test grade. 

Reading calendars must be checked in with me every Friday!

Our Current Unit is Fractions

It is still absolutely essential that your child know their basic multiplication and division facts.  Practice a few facts fixing dinner,  at the dinner table, in the car, before bed, anytime!  Have your student go on XTRA MATH to practice!


All students have been logged on and should be practicing if they do not know their facts consistently. 

 A very helpful website for you to use and your child is:  www.khanacademy.org 

 It explains all mathematical concepts!



Our first writing unit is Memoirs.  They will be writing about a personal experience that is near and dear to their heart. 

There will be writing homework in the writer's notebooks as we progress through our writing units.  



Our current unit is Sun, Moon and Earth. 

Everyone has a nightly moon log that they need to be completing for five weeks.  It only takes a minute or two to sneak a peek at the moon and record its appearance on their log, date it and write what they observed.  They are also responsible for the right side of the log, thinking of questions and seeing if they can find the answers.  The prompts we will be completing in school. 

Below is a site for your child to practice their skills and knowledge for the Connecticut Mastery Test and NWEA for Science.
