Mrs. Coverick’s Class News for September 26 – 30

Reading:
-Our story from our book this week is called “Teacher’s Pets”.
-We will review short and long vowels.
-We will read and practice “The Turkeys Go on Strike”.
-We will be working on fluency while using “Six Minute Solutions” and “Readers “Theater”.

Spelling: TEST IS THIS FRIDAY!
-I will try to have most of our future spelling tests on Fridays so that there is more consistency. We will not have a test every Friday. My Web Page and newsletter will state each week whether or not we have a test.
-Our words this week are spin, clap, grade, swim, place, last, test, skin, drag, glide, just, stage, slip, drive, climb, price

Writing: We will be working on narrative writing.

Language: Students will be reviewing nouns.

Math: Students are working on numbers to 1,000.
-Please be working with your child on math facts. They should know them instantly without using fingers. You can help by playing flashcards with them and making sure they go on xtramath daily.

Social Studies: Thanksgiving/ Pilgrims/ Native Americans: We will be learning about these things as we work on our musical.

Science: We have started to study the properties of matter. Students did some fun activities and worked in groups to learn about physical properties of matter. We will continue to work on matter throughout the first quarter. Students will be doing some fun group activities and experiments together as they learn.

Field Trip: Please return your field trip form with a check as soon as possible.

Reminders: Library Books and Logs are due EVERY FRIDAY.

------------------------------------------

You can check your child's grades by going on Power School.. This year it will look different than in the past. There will only be two categories: Formative Assessments and Summative Assessments. Grades will be taken in both categories. Grades in the formative category will count for 25% of a student's grade and grades in the summative category will count for 75% of the student's grade. Much of the students' work that has been graded has been marked as formative or summative, but you can always check in Power School to be sure. If you see a "t" with a circle around it on your child's paper, it was done together and will not count toward their grade. If you see a star on top of a paper, it did not count towards a grade.
