This will be our means of communication for Distance Learning.  Please email us if you are having trouble. We will open REMIND up to communicate back and forth if you are having issues signing into GoogleClassroom.  As of now we have NO information on whether the students can come to get their belongings:(

We hope you find this class website helpful.  It's a great way to keep you up to date with homework assignments and class events for Class 4-312!

Check back here often as information may be updated daily, especially homework.

Of course, as always if you have any questions you can contact Mrs. Forma & Mrs. Fioriello at

We are currently working on the following:

* We are using Chapter 13 from our old GO MATH program to cover area & perimeter! (We feel Go Math provides more material and support on these topics at this time.)

* ELA: iReady Test Prep.... Reading Comprehension/Non Fiction Articles/Short Response Questions/Extended Response Questions

- Narrative Writing/Descriptive Paragraph/Word Choice

* Using R.A.C.E.S. to develop strong, clear, and detailed short responses to comprehension questions:

R = Restate the question

C = Cite text evidence (2 pieces of evidence)

E = Explain how the evidence supports your claim. (This proves that...)

S = Sum it up (This is why...)

Some suggestions for practice at home...

- Review place value using graph paper for better organization of numbers and columns.

- Read 25 minutes daily.  Stop while reading to think about what has happened and what will happen in the story.

-Keep a writing journal at home.  Write in it as often as you like!  Occasionally, go back and read some of your previous journal entries and notice ways in which you have grown as a writer over time, using the skills and strategies we will learn throughout the year.  (Sentence structure, organization, show/not tell, transition words)

-Written responses to comprehension questions must ALWAYS be organized with full sentences!

Homework

Homework given will always reflect the day's current lessons.  It is an important reinforcement of skills learned and is intended to be purposeful, not tedious.  If your child is unable to complete the homework for any reason please send in a note to let us know.  They are responsible for maintaining a classroom log of homeworks missed and made up. Students will always have the opportunity to make up missed work.

The SplashMath code will change monthly.  We will keep it updated here:

SPLASH MATH CODE: FGOBJS

All website homework must be completed on the specific days when it is assigned.

Parents! You can download the free app called Bounce Pages.  It allows you to scan the EnVision pages with your phone to display a video that explains the lesson.  This can be helpful to both you and your child!
