If you are finding yourself on this page, then we most likely have your child for reading. Core 1 reading is from 8:30-10:00. Core 2 reading is from 10:55-12:25. Please note that both blocks for Mrs. Conyers use the library on Tuesdays and both blocks for Mrs. Meisterics use the library on Wednesdays. Our newsletter will come home every Friday. Here are a few things you should know!
Your child recieves a master list of spelling words to start the school year. We will cover all of these words by the end of the year. Your child will glue words in their agenda each Friday that will be tested the following Friday. We will have two dictation sentences on each test as well. All of our words come from the Sitton Spelling program. They are common words used in everyday language.
We use RAZ kids, which is a online leveled reading program. Your child has a teacher username and a password to use for this site. You can find the login site here. Your child will use this program sometimes at school, but we also encourage them to use it at home! Please click the large green button on the site that says "kids login." Students can use the site as much as they would like.
Your child should read at least 20 minutes each evening. They will log this onto a weekly reading log. Logs will come home each Friday and be due the following Friday. They must log the book, the minutes read, and a two sentence summary each night.
Each day we have a mini-lesson (grammar) and reading/writing time. To find out what standards we are working on, please check the newsletter!
Your child will take the state AIR test for the first time this year. Our fall dates are October 22 and 23. We will also take the test in the spring.
