Week 36 (MAY 12 – 16, 2008)

Science field trip permission slips and $7 are due this Friday, May 16Please read about this challenging field trip here.

Progress reports will be sent home this week. Students will spend the remainder of the week completing missing assignments in class.

Each week, parents should look for these two things:

  • *This Week’s Assignments (in the sidebar on the right), and
  • the current issue of my classroom newsletter, Mr. T’s Tattler

Absolutely no nuts, raspberries, pineapple, or baked goods containing milk in the classroom at anytime. This includes products your kids bring in daily for their snack. Airborne particles and residue on hands, clothing, desks, and in waste containers are of dire concern. Thanks for your help.

Fun Friday Snack Helpers are Dalton (snacks) and Matt (drinks). We start at 2:30 p.m., have 24 students, and there can be no nuts, raspberries, pineapple, or baked goods containing milk.

Math 54. Problem sets 121 – 125 will be due as homework this week. They will test this Friday.

Shurley Grammar. There will be no quiz this week.

All testing in my classes will occur this Friday as follows:

  • Daily Oral Language (DOL). They will not test on the sentences edited each morning in class. They will, however, have a DOL quiz this Friday.
  • Spelling. Students will test only upon the words they misspelled on Friday’s pretest. They will be exempted if their pretest score is at least 95%.
  • Spelling list (available Monday night)
  • Vocabulary. I am no longer pretesting so there are no exemptions from the Friday test.
  • Vocabulary words (available Monday night)
  • Open Court. The reading comprehension exam will be comprised of short answer and multiple choice questions. It will be an “open book” test.
  • Martha Helps the Rebel (is available online)
