End of Quarter Happenings

Quarter Changes:

  • Spelling – spelling homework will be more specific on the ways in which it is practiced.  ex. write my sort, speed sort, rainbow write.  The 2/3s took a spelling inventory this week and all increased the number of words they got correct!  They take the same inventory at the beginning of the year.  The inventory looks at words spelled correctly and it looks at spelling patterns.  This helps me determine what level of spelling words are just right for each learner.
  • Reading, – some have made the switch (reading homework) in reading, to read for a certain amount of time rather than a certain amount of pages or chapters.  Both ways are fine.  I am helping with planning so each learner reads an appropriate amount per night.  The goal is 30 mins.
  • Math – Quarter 2 math journals will be in Friday Folders.  These journals are worked on throughout the quarter and the 2/3 class did an amazing job overall.  With the start of a new quarter they will get a new journal; Red Team is headed into fractions and Green Team is looking at measurement and data.
  • GS – stay tuned!!!!
  • Writing – we will work on opinion wiring this quarter!  Stay tuned.
