Wow…. Time is sure flying by!   flying-clock We are really starting to get a routine going and the days seem to zoom by!

This week we will finish Ch. 1 (Place Value) in math.  We’ve been taking Standard Based Quizzes and I’m pretty excited about how well they are doing!  We’ll take the chapter test on Thursday.

place value   Students…. PLEASE don’t forget to  facts !!

We started our Spelling last week and took our first spelling test on Friday.  We’ll continue to have a new list of words every week.  We’ll work on spelling in class and have a spelling test every Friday.  I will also post our spelling lists each week so students can practice at home as well, if needed.

We are reading personal narratives in our CKLA readers and learning about Sensory Details and Figurative Language.  We will take the next few weeks to write our own personal narratives.

In Science, we will be learning about Utah Environments and the plants and animals that live there.

We’ve also been spending a lot of time setting up our Data Binders.  I can’t wait to get these going so we won’t have to take so much time updating them!

Students completed either the Flash or RLA reading assessments today.  I’m waiting to get the data from our reading specialist so I can create reading groups.  I will notify parents who signed up to help with reading once I have groups ready.

picture day is this Thursday (August 31st)  All students will have his/her picture taken for our class picture, yearbook and PowerSchool.  If you want to order pictures, order form packets were sent home last week.

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, September 4th!                labor day

I think that’s all for now!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
