As you know, I sent home a writing assignment for the students. We have many students in the class who are struggling with writing. Not only do we need practice handwriting, but also composing writing, using punctuation, spelling, and other important skills.
Because of this, I am assigning writing homework for Monday through Thursday every day. Right now, they are copying a page from any book they want. I want them to see what good writing looks like. I am looking for perfect spelling, grammar, and punctuation since they are just copying from a book.
If you have a student that struggles with writing, I am taking this into consideration. I don’t want this to be stressful; I want them to try to improve. The only way to improve is practicing every day!
So, homework now looks like this:
1. READ every night for at least 20 minutes. (Have them read out loud to you! It helps in so many ways!)
2. WRITE a page each night. (These assignments will vary.)
3. Math worksheets will be sent home once in a while.
4. We have 2 more book reports this year.
Thanks for your support at home!
This week we have been studying standard 4.NF.3.
Ask your students tonight how they did on the assessment, and for extra help feel free to check out this link.
Have a great weekend!
Just a few things about this week: Thursday we will watch the Christmas choir performance assembly at 9:45 am.
Friday is a FREE dress down day. We will have a class party in the morning, then after recess we will have a sing along (in our classroom) and a read-a-thon. Kids can bring a stuffed animal that day if they want!
Then we are off until January 2!
Just a reminder, book reports are due next week. The students have signed up for a day to present. I made them solemnly swear they would not leave it until the last minute Sunday night.
I would like to ask if there are any parents who would like to plan a Christmas party for our class on December 14th. I will be doing a sing along, but I would love to have some other activities. Also, if parents want to bring food, we can get permission from all the parents. Let me know if you would like to be involved!
