Fact Practice


Students will write in their planners what homework they have each night.  Please initial nightly that you see the planner, and know they completed their homework.  If students habitually do not complete their assignments, we will set up a more specific process for them.

•Students are required to complete 40 minutes of Iready Reading and IReady Math each week.   Sometimes they are able to get this work done in class.  If not, they need to finish it for homework.

•Students will have math and literacy homework if they do not complete their assignments in class.

•Students are required to read 15 pages each day and record it on their log.  They may have time in class to get this done.

                                                Fall Party
Our Fall Party will be at 3 pm on Oct. 26.  We will have recess at 2:30,  then come in to change into costumes at 2:45.  Costumes are not required.  If your child chooses to bring a costume, please make sure it is school appropriate, does not include weapons, masks or make up.  Sometimes the costumes are so involved, kids miss the party because it takes so long to get them on!  
If you would like to contribute to the Fall Party, please sign up here.  Thank you!

    Many of the students in our class are struggling with spelling and handwriting.  It is very difficult to read their writing.  Our class is going to start using web based program called Studyladder to help them work on their spelling skills.  They will have online activities to practice the 5th grade skills,  then I will give them a worksheet to complete to show their understanding.

 Your child has been given a username and password which can be used to access Studyladder. Recovering previous points and rewards:  If your child had a previous account, use the following steps to recover their past rewards and points: 1. Log in to their NEW school account 2. Click on the MENU option 3. Select RECOVER POINTS and enter the OLD username/password All of their past rewards will be recovered. This will also upgrade their new account if the previous account had premium paid access.  Using Studyladder from home Simply go to and login using your child’s school username and password. The free version allows students to access 3 activities per day from home.  As a parent you can join Studyladder for free if you wish to monitor your child’s progress.
• Social Studies:  Our robotics projects are due Friday.  They will be uploaded in SeeSaw for you to see.
•Reading:  We have finished our adventure novels and our unit on interpretation and theme.  We took a test on it today.  Tomorrow we will take another test to show how students can apply these skills with different text.
•Math - We have started Unit 2.  You should have seen your child's Unit 1 test come home and signed it earlier this week.

See Saw

This year we're going to use a new tool to share what we're learning in class called Seesaw. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class.

Click on to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds.

Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Family app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.


P.S. If you have more than one child using Seesaw, or want to add a new class/school year for your child, follow the link in this email, then click 'Sign in' tab at the top. You do not need to create a new account
