Social Studies

Study guides went home today for Mrs. Stewart’s homeroom. Study guides will go home tomorrow for Mrs. Fowler and Ms. Maxwell’s homerooms. Our test will be Friday. Please make sure your child studies, as this will be the last grade for this 9 weeks for Social Studies. We will begin Science next week.

Homework

Just a reminder that homework is given to all students in Reading and Math each night, except Fridays. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check over your child’s work to make sure it is done correctly. We have many students who are losing their playtime because they are having to correct homework. Thanks!

ELA News-Mrs. Fowler

Check your child’s green folder if you haven’t seen their graded papers that were sent home earlier this week. We currently working on the second story in our textbook, My Family. The test is scheduled for next Wednesday, Aug. 24. I want parents to be aware that we won’t always have a reading test every week. Test dates will vary depending on the length of the story, skills that need to be mastered, and writing assignments scheduled. To keep you informed, please look on your child’s spelling list inside their binder to see test dates. We are also working on nouns, proper nouns, ABC order, and rhyming words.

Social Studies

We are finishing up our study of Georgia regions and rivers. We will have a quiz on Tuesday where students will have to label each region of Georgia. Our test will be Friday. August 29 we will do our edible cookie project. I need four parents from each homeroom to volunteer to send in large, plain sheet cakes in the shape of Georgia. The students will decorate as a cumulative project.
Please email me if you can volunteer to send in a cake for your child’s homeroom.
Thanks!
