The Week of January 25, 2021

Congratulations to you for another successful Boosterthon Fundraiser!  This year, we have raised over $10,000 for our school!   Our classroom raised just about $32 per minute of dancing!  This means that we have earned a few more incentives:

Monday, Jan. 25th will be crazy hair day

Tuesday, Jan. 26th will be sunglasses day

Thursday, Jan. 28th will be “show and tell” day

Most students have completed the iReady diagnostic assessment, so we will go back to our normally-scheduled lessons this upcoming week.  Because of last week’s testing, there will be no spelling quiz or vocabulary activity this Wednesday.  Your child will receive new spelling and vocabulary lists to study this Thursday to prepare for a quiz and activity on Wednesday, Feb. 3.  This upcoming week they will be required to complete a ReadWorks and Saxon activity by Friday.

There are a few changes to our weekly required assignments that will take effect this week.  All students will now be required to spend at least 30 minutes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday completing online work on iReady.  In addition, 4th graders will need to read at least one story on Amira for fluency practice each Tuesday and Thursday.  I’ve added these works to your itsLearning calendar/schedule to help them remember to do it.  In order to give you time to complete these added required works, you will now only be asked to complete one Saxon work per week.  I have updated the “Daily Checklist” to reflect these changes (you can access it here).   

Have an enjoyable weekend; you deserve it!
