    Thank you for being flexible! 
    Please remember, all weeks work must be completed/turned in by Sunday Evening unless accommodations are made. 
    REMINDER: Students homework daily is to finish any incomplete classwork, and I give through the weekend to catch up if needed.
    Reading this week is Unit 5 Week 4. We have 2 phonics worksheets, 2 response to readings, and a vocabulary exercise to complete for the week. We test on Friday. IReady needs to be done for 45 minutes for the week.
    Math is covering geometry. Minilessons will have copies in the classroom along with extra practice, and the classwork will be in connectED. Students should also complete at least 45 minutes on Dreambox for the week. Rocket Math should be done daily. 
    In Writing, We are working on Opinion writing .  We are going to be making a class book. I am so excited to see their work. 
    In Science, we are learning about the Earth and how it changes.
    Please Remember that our Meet times are currently 8:35 to 12:45, with 1:30 to 3 for those who elected full day ONLY. Students must return from lunch by 1:30 pm if they are in extended day!
