Spelling Words this week:
(Friday spelling test as usual)
Meteorologist homework! See worksheet which was sent home this afternoon. This is a more creative assignment where students will present on Friday in class. Students will also hand in the written component which should have 5 days of weather and 20 vocabulary words incorporated. I am excited to see where in the world we are looking at the weather on Friday. I tried to answer questions today in class but if there is anything else please let me know!
(4G received poster if they were interested today and 4T will have the same option for poster tomorrow! -Not necessary, but I am encouraging any creative approach!)
*This Friday we will also be having a short reading genre quiz. Students will be coming home with the study guide tomorrow to study from. The format will be matching the definition to the genre.
*To put on your radar, next week I will announce a book report/project that students will complete at home. There will be more details to come, however I told students to start thinking about a possible trip to the library :) I also have a Fairhaven library card if students tell me the title and author of a book I am happy to grab it for them next week.
-Ms. Trahan will be sending worksheets home each night this week which should be completed and returned the following morning :)
Take Home Tuesday Update:
-Tomorrow the Take Home Tuesday envelopes will go home! They are slightly thicker than usual so please take the time with your student to review the papers enclosed. Some students have assessments that have been stamped with 'sign and return'. These are expected to be signed and returned. Please attach a note or follow up with an email if you feel necessary.
Thank you so much for reading! Please let either of us know if you have any questions.
Ms. G and Ms. Trahan
