ELA
Students are expected to read and understand more and more complex texts.

We encourage students to always use text evidence to support any ideas they may have about their reading. If you ask your students questions at home about their reading, you can ask them, "What in the text makes you think that?"
Birthdays
The school wide policy for birthdays has changed. As mentioned in the summer mailing that went home, students will receive a homework pass on their birthday and have their name posted on a bulletin board outside the GP room. Food will no longer be permitted for birthday celebrations.

How much more did each person at the elementary school give than each person at the middle school?

ELA questions - shift from answers that are "right there" to questions that extend BEYOND the text.
Instead of "What is the setting of the story?", students must answer questions like this...
Education is a Balance
We want to prepare kids with the skills they need for the ever changing demands of our society, but also foster and nurture the love of learning. My goal is to strike a balance between the two, so that every child feels confident moving forward in their academic careers, while harboring a passion for knowledge
Math Homework
One page will be assigned for homework. However, if you would like to do more with your child, you can do any page that says "homework" on the top for that lesson.

Conference Reminder
If you didn't already sign up for a conference time at the side table, please do so before you leave. If you sign up for a particular day, I will do my best to give you that day. However, the times are not guaranteed.

Thank you so very much!
The main goal for students is to develop a reading habit. Ideally, by the time fourth grade is over, students will know themselves better as readers. They will know what genres they like and what genres may be a bit more tricky. However, they will have accrued strategies to overcome the challenges of any text.
Reading Homework
Students are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes a night. They are to log this reading and a parent is expected to sign the reading log.
