Today kids brought home their first vocabulary lists.  There are a total of 10 words. The root word is graph and the prefixes are ir- and non- These words will be the focus of their quiz on Friday.  They do not need to spell the words correctly, but must understand the meaning of the words.  The sheets they brought home can be cut apart for studying like flashcards or you may leave them in one piece and fold them.  We will be working with the words this week at school, but extra study at home would help!

Spelling tests last week had such great results, thank you parents for helping kids study at home! This week our words all are comparative (er and est endings). Test is Friday.

iPad release day is tomorrow! If you have filled out the FeePay insurance form, your child will bring their iPad home tomorrow night for the first time.

Math homework on word problems and basic facts.  Workbook page 66, many kids finished this in class. Worksheet 60 number 1-14 and 19-20.

Fun Run Friday!

BOOK ORDERS DUE FRIDAY! See the link in the upper right hand corner of this page to order online or paper order is fine too.



Thursday…almost there!

Good afternoon!

It sounds like the field trip was a  big success, thank you to all the chaperones who attended as well as all the adults that help prepare their child for such a fun day!  Miss Bendickson had great things to say about the kids on the trip.  I was not able to attend due to a very long appointment in the afternoon that could not be rescheduled. 😦

Math Homework (my math group only) is worksheet 57 numbers 1 and 2 as well as worksheet 58 1-42 and 19-21

Spelling test is tomorrow.  I am still figuring out the spelling routine for this year so please help your child study at home in preparation for the test as we did not have a ton of class time to study here.

Fun Run donations can be turned in any time between now and the Fun Run.

Tomorrow is wear all colors, or ‘rainbow’ day for kindergartners and any students that want to support their color review they have done for the past two weeks.

I sent home an email about volunteer opportunities for 4th graders, all activities are optional, deadline of September 27th is firm.


Rain or shine we will attend River Rendezvous!

Kids should bring a cold lunch, water bottle and any clothing layers they may need…they will be bringing and hanging on to their backpack all day so all these items will stay with them all day.

Optional field trip items: money for kettle corn or trading post items, electronic device or camera to take pictures

Parent chaperones please meet us at the venue.

No math homework tonight or tomorrow night.



Today we started Unit 1 in math.  Children that stayed in my room for math or came to my room during math have the following assignment…if I am not their math teacher please disregard the math section of this BLOG entry. 🙂 Worksheet 55 1-5 and worksheet 56 1-12 and 28-29 are the assignments which are due tomorrow.  Most nights the children will have homework in math. I try to give less before weekends and before field trips.

Today in reading we talked about the structure of our Reader’s Workshop afternoon which includes: parent volunteers weekly, independent reading, guided reading, spelling, vocabulary and mini lessons.

Spelling will begin this week. The first list is coming home tonight. The test will be Friday afternoon.
