Parents, it was such a pleasure to meet with you and celebrate the hard work your child has been doing this year. I feel so, so, SO fortunate to teach in a community that values education as much as Spring Lake does! Thank you to each and every one of you for taking the time to meet with me and support your child's learning.
We are continuing our character studies during fiction reading. Students are making lots of sticky notes, noting where they see the characters say or do something that tells us about what they're like inside.
Remember baggie book exchange is taking place strictly on Fridays now for almost all students. Read those two baggie books during the week and be ready for an AR test on Friday. Our class is working on reading 50% fiction and 50% non-fiction. So far, we're at 73% fiction and 27% non-fiction. Yikes! Is your child reading their share of non-fiction? Any encouragement is appreciated!
We will be finishing unit 5 soon and taking our assessment. This was a challenging unit for may kiddos. If you child is looking for ways to prep for the upcoming test, Schoology has lots of resources for that.
Information books are coming due soon in science. Mr. Talmadge has been working hard with students to ensure they will be the best they can be. Feel free to contact him with questions.
I hope your child is enjoying reading The Cricket in Times Square. There are sill many more fun activities planned for March is Reading Month yet to come. Check your calendars.
