Mrs. Coverick’s Class News, January 23-29

ELA: Our reading story this week is “Officer Buckle and Gloria”. This is a really cute story. The genre in humorous fiction. We will also be reading “Safety at Home”. Our vocabulary words this week are obeys, safety, attention, buddy, station, speech, shocked, and enormous. Some of the skills we will be working on this week are cause and effect, and using quotation marks for dialogue. Our grammar skill this week will be using abbreviations. For writing, students will begin working on their Wax Museum reports. Spelling words this week are compound words: cannot, pancake, maybe, baseball, playground, someone, myself, classroom, sunshine, outside, upon, nothing, into, inside, nobody, and everywhere. The spelling test is this Friday.

Math: In math we continue with chapter six. We are working on addition and subtraction, but we also try to review many skills taught throughout the school year. Two skills that are vitally important are counting money and telling time. Please work with your child on these skills if they are struggling.

Social Studies: We continue to study famous people in history with our biography study. This will be our focus in social studies through the end of February.

Science: We will begin to study Animal and Plant Dependence.

Save the Date: WAX MUSEUM presentation for parents will be on Tuesday, February 28th at 11:00 in the Art room. This is the time for our class tto perform. We hope to see you there.

This year we will begin to explore and learn how to write in cursive! Please encourage your child to practice at home what we are learning in school. Their homework and classwork will continue to be written in manuscript (regular printing). If you scroll down to the cool links below, your child can watch the videos we will be using to help us learn. They can practice writing cursive under your guidance. I just want to ensure they do it correctly as they are learning. We will stick to the lower case letters for now.



----------------------------------------------------
Thank you parents for encouraging your children to work hard on RAZ KIDS and PRODIGY! They are doing great! Keep up the practice and excitement. Remember to squeeze in some XTRAMATH practice too. These are the three websites that I would like them all to practice on regularly. Thanks for your support.

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. I now have a summative stamp that I will be using for summative grades. F
