Week 25 (March 2 – 6, 2009)

Progress reports for Mr. T’s classes, excluding Science, went home today.

CSAP testing begins this week. Make certain they get some sleep and breakfast. Kids in my class will still take vocabulary and DOL quizzes on Friday, and Math 65 students will have homework every night this week.

(Additional) Dress of Choice Day. Friday, March 6, for third through fifth grade A and A/B honor roll students only.

Legacy Academy letters of commitment for the the 2009-10 academic year can be found here and on page four of the February 23 Legacy Ledger. They are due March 16.

Science. Thanks to all the parents that helped in the sheep heart dissection labs last week. Photos will be uploaded shortly.

Your kids will become 5th graders in 52.5 school days.

Star of the Week. Wednesday, March 4: Olivia. Each star will need to talk briefly about the photographs and artifacts they bring in to share and field questions from the crowd.

Math 65. Problem sets 97 – 99 will be due Friday and problem sets 100 -101 will be due Monday.  They will also test on Friday.

Shurley Grammar. No testing this week, however, students will be classifying pattern 3 sentences and working with synonyms and antonyms.

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

  • Daily Oral Language (DOL). Beginning today, there are no more weekly practice sentences or tests (i.e., they will no longer test on the sentences they edit each morning in class). They will, however, continue to have a DOL quiz every Friday.
  • Spelling. They will not test this week on their individualized spelling lists.
  • Vocabulary.
  • Vocabulary words
  • Open Court. The reading comprehension exam will be comprised of short answer and multiple choice questions. It is always an “open book” test.
  • Music and Slavery (a study guide is NOT available online)
