Good afternoon, Room 22 families!
Next week will begin with an exploration of another Montessori Great Lesson: The Coming of Humans.This grand story encompasses the entire history of human life on Earth! The vocabulary words for the week will come from this lesson. The students should be working with these words daily to prepare for a vocabulary activity on Friday. In addition, we will continue with another word study list for the week that will be assessed on Friday. As usual, small group lessons during the week will focus on grammar, math, reading, and writing. Follow-up works from these lessons are written on your child's "Required Assignments" page on their workplan.
Most students in our room have finished the I-Ready diagnostic. This allows them to begin lessons on the program that are tailored to their specific learning needs. They will have a required amount of time they will work on this program each week, but they are also invited to do extra time (at school or at home).
Your child's weekly progress report will be sent home Monday. It will contain your child's first workplan and a collection of their works from the week. I ask that you review the packet, sign, and return it Tuesday. Please do not removed any pages from the packet, as I use the works to plan upcoming lessons.
Finally, I would like to invite you to an upper elementary parent information meeting being held this Wednesday, August 25th. We will have a separate meeting for each gradelevel, so we can answer any specific questions you may have about the upcoming year. The 4th grade meeting will be at 5:00, 5th will be at 5:30, and 6th at 6:00. Links to the Zoom meeting will be sent to you soon.
As always, I am available via Remind or email if you have any questions or concerns.
Have a nice weekend,
