Before I left, I have given the class usernames and passwords for 2 different things. The first is Ticket to Read, this is a great website that allows students to work on their comprehension skills. This should be glued into their planner, the link in is my Web Links tab. The other is their lausd email and password. This will allow them access to the google tools we will be using in class as well as the websites for Treasures and My Math. All of these are excellent tools that I encourage you to use often. All links are in the Web Links tab. Email and password should be written in their planners. (They really need to memorize this, since they will use it several times a week.)
This past week was busy as usual, with the end of Chapter 2 in Math. We also continued our unit in Treasures, and moved on to the next lesson in Science on minerals. Students should have also finished filling out their CA Regions Booklets and gluing their CA iPads together. If not, they need to finish at home. Both of these are Social Studies grades.
This week will continue in all academic areas on what we have been working on. Students will have a rock quiz on Monday and a CA map quiz on Wednesday. The map quiz will be open book.
I gave students their first progress reports, please sign these, as well as the 2 tests sent home, and return them on Monday.
I will see you all soon, with a new little one in tow!
