Reading and AR Goal/Reading Log

Please encourage your students to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure to take an AR test. For every 70 points earned, I will buy that student a milkshake from Burgers ETC.

Reading logs are due every Friday. It will always be listed in the Homework section. A blank copy of the log is in the Document Section for you convenience.

Math

Math assignments are always posted in the homework section of the web page. Assignments are randomly selected for grading.  Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn in the redo with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade student forgot his//her math book, there is a PDR version in the Classroom Documents.  Your student can find the day’s lesson and do the work.

Your 6th-grade students are in Kahn Academy.  You can look at their progress from the app.  The students have their user names and passwords. If they cannot remember them, please let me know, and I will e-mail them to you.

Social Studies

We will be using a textbook and begin our studies with the first peoples arriving in North America.  We will quickly go through the prehistoric time and should end the year at the colonization of the Americas.

Emergency School Closure Days

On emergency school closure days, assignments due that day and tests scheduled that day will move to the next day school is in session.  For example, if there is an emergency closure on Friday, and school is back in session on Monday, all homework due and tests scheduled for Friday will occur on Monday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Please remember to keep our School and our Class in your prayers.

Blessings,

Mrs. Charles
