Week of October 24th

Hi Parents,
Here is the homework for the upcoming week. I am no longer sending home a paper version. Please contact me if you need special accommodations.
Please make suer you review your child’s homework each evening and sign it.

Monday is the math test and Tuesday is the Gooney Bird Greene assessment.

Monday

Reading
Read For 30 minutes and log it in your Reading Log
Reading Logs need to be filled out each evening. It is very important your children read every night as a routine and you ask questions about what they read. If you need any guiding questions, please contact me.

Word Study (To be completed in the Homework Notebook)
The Words of the Week are pulled from our read aloud, Gooney Bird Greene and our Fundations program:
subdued, scurried, interfere, rhinestone, patiently, arranged, sniffed, allergic, pretty and does

Refer to the Speller’s Choice board. Choose only one assignment in one of the boxes and complete it in your homework notebook.

Math
Test today– No Homework for this evening in Math

Writing
You received 2 options for a book project on Gooney Bird Greene: a writing assignment or an interview. Choose 1 and complete it by Friday. This will be a time management project. You must manage your time throughout the week to get a little bit done each day. Maybe tonight you can begin planning, tomorrow, begin drafting, etc. Don’t wait until the last minute because you may feel overwhelmed. You’re an overachiever or you want to challenge yourself? Complete both projects (the second project will count as extra credit)!

Friendly Reminders
The children are still in need of practicing their addition and subtraction facts. During homework each evening, please spend about 10 minutes going over this. It is essential that during Math, they have perfected this skill. This upcoming unit is division and multiplication. Math facts need to be practiced each evening.
