Week 34 (May 11 – 15, 2009)

Some progress reports went home today.

Your kids will become 5th graders in 9.5 school days. Wow.

Math 65. Supplemental problem sets 132 – 136 will be due Friday. They will test on Friday.

Shurley Grammar. Students will be classifying pattern 4 sentences.

The Spalding Method. Phonograms 45 – 70 will be reviewed this week.

Rewriting. Some students have already completed their biographies about people who have changed America. Because the school year is winding down so quickly, here is a link to directions and scoring rubric for a simplified project.

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

  • Daily Oral Language (DOL). 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 test this week on their individualized spelling lists from last week.
  • 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.
  • Martha Helps the Rebel (a study guide is available online)
