1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your minutes on your reading log
2) Practice your spelling words (Students made spelling flashcards in class today)

** Tomorrow we have another Author Visit (Troy Cummings). Mrs. Grost send home another flyer as she wasn't sure all of the original flyers made it home. Ordering is NOT required, she just wanted to make sure it made it home.

I have held back on update Seesaw for the past few days as we are having some issues with signing into my class account (especially parents who have signed up for Seesaw previously). I have been emailing with Seesaw and got this response to troubleshoot the issues. Hope it works!

Homework for Monday, October 16th

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your minutes

2) I gave students copies of their spelling list for next week today, as some students/parents wanted to have a full week to practice. Nothing is assigned over the weekend, but it's always good to get a head start!

*** Picture forms went home yesterday. Please check your student's folder for the form this weekend in case it did not make it.

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your minutes

2) Study for tomorrow's Northeast Region Quiz. I sent home a blank map with the answers on the back for practice, but students can use their packet or flashcards or this song or this app to practice as well! (Capitals are extra credit)

** The primary purpose of this quiz is to locate the states on a blank map and identify the abbreviations for each state. There will be multiple versions of the quiz for students to choose from, including versions with word banks for students who are having difficulty with the spelling of the state's names.

Homework for Wednesday, October 4th

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your minutes

2) Liam O., Emily, and Kevin did fantastic jobs presenting their "My Family and My Identity" Slides. Other students should be finishing up and finalizing their projects to present this week. Please look these over with your student to make sure the information is correct.

3) Students should make flashcards for their spelling words this week using the lists I sent home yesterday. (We are still getting used to our standard spelling routine due to the lack of full 5 day weeks to start the year, including how we use SpellingCity. If your student is confused or the lists didn't make it home, we will get the work done in class.)

*** Some students were mentioning the incident in Las Vegas yesterday in class. While it's important to cover current events, this event is obviously very tragic and upsetting to some students.  I would appreciate it if parents would discuss the event with their student in order to provide information in a setting that is comfortable for the student, as it is bound to come up in class.

Homework for Tuesday, October 3rd

1) Read for 20 minutes and log your minutes (October Reading Logs went home today)
2) Students should share their "My Family and My Identity" slides with their families to make sure everything is accurate, and to see if there are any additional facts to add.
3) Students received 2 spelling lists today (one for home and one for school). Students should type their lists onto Seesaw, using their lists as a guide. (If this can't be completed at home, students will have the chance to do so in class tomorrow)

** All Seesaw posts are now private, so that students can post without getting comments from other students. We will use that feature later in the year, but I have turned it off for now.
