Math


PTA has recently purchased access to the Reflex Math website for us to use last year.  It might be working during the summer.  Students have a name and password, it pretests them and gives them individualized practice problems to help them with their math facts.  Go to www.reflexmath.com,   This would be a great way to review facts before our tests in August.









Homework


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.  They have tasks in IXL Language Arts they need to complete each month.  Sometimes they are able to get this work done in class.  If not, they need to finish it for homework.
•Spelling tests are on Wednesday, and their packets are also due Wednesday.  They will come home with a new list and packet on Wednesday.



Classroom News

Field Day

Friday is Field Day.  Remember to wear hats and sunscreen.  Bring a water bottle and towel.  There is a water slide so if kids want to wear a swimsuit under their clothes that is fine.


Novels

We are reading novels with bullying themes.  The kids are really enjoying them.  They have a few jobs as they read that they need to complete to be prepared for their Literature Circle meetings.  These novels will be the focus of our reading through the end of the year.  Tuesday students can bring blankets, stuffed animals, pillows and wear PJs if they want to make our reading time more comfortable.  The school library is now closed; all books should be returned.  Please watch for fee sheets to come home in Friday folders to see if your child has an overdue book. 



Young Ameritowne

We are in full swing. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered; we couldn't do it without you. We are learning to manage personal finances, so we are not working in Eureka Math. There should be very little homework for YAT, except practicing for their job interviews in the mirror.


IReady

There is no IReady for the rest of the month! Yay! IReady and IXL will be available to students over the summer if they would like to continue working through it!


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 https://app.seesaw.me/s/360-441-454 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.

Thanks!

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.
