Notes from Mrs. Conover (Math) firstname.lastname@example.org
All three grades will continue with "Mad Minutes" this week. This helps to practice math fact fluency.
3rd 4th and 5th grades all have a project due on Thursday, please remember to wear presentation shirt. They were all given a review today, to be completed by tomorrow. We will review it tomorrow in preparation of a 6 weeks test on Wednesday.
Notes from Mrs. Crow (Reading) email@example.com
I conferenced with all students today and tomorrow about their grade for the 6 weeks and discussed with them the results of their work this 6 weeks.
All grades fiction stories are to be published and turned in on January 17th. This project was assigned in November and has been completed in parts throughout the 6 weeks. We will be creating our own library of authors and students will give book talks Thursday and Friday before books are able to be read by their classmates. I am excited to see how our little authors are pushing themselves to add details to their writing and can't wait to read the final versions of all the stories we have been discussing.
No tutoring for 5th grade invitees due to early release this week. I will not be having reading tutoring for invited students next week. I am out for training next week.
