Classroom News:



We have begun our last unit on the study of New Hampshire: A Sense of Place- through the lens of history.  The students will be researching a specific topic and will then complete multi-genre projects to present what they know to their classmates.  


Coming up May 13- 21 we will be doing NH SAS testing (state standardized testing)  Most of the testing occurs in the morning, but we will continue into the afternoon. Please let me and Susan know if your child has appointments during this time, so we can be prepared to start or stop testing as needed.  Students will have as much time as they need to complete these tests.  Fourth and Fifth graders have language arts (including a writing test) and math, while fifth graders also have a science assessment.

Homework:


Please, Please, Please help your student to check their assignment notebook for ongoing integrated project and passion project homework, as well as their book club homework.



Reading: 30 minutes a night (once over the weekend) Students are often reading the same material as their classmates, and it is useful for them to be at about the same place to have good conversation.  

Math Students should practice their multiplication facts at least 4 times a week for about 10 minutes.  There are many ways to practice such as flash cards, oral quizzing, Ipad apps, Khan Academy, Mathisfun.com.  As the content of math becomes more complicated it is really important for students to be automatic with their facts so they can use this knowledge to solve problems more efficiently. ***Students who do not finish assigned classwork in the reasonable amount of classtime, will be requested to complete the work at home.  They should spend about 20 minutes working and if it proves too difficult, they should check in with me upon returning to school, so I can find a time to help them. 

Parents should sign check-in for reading and math in the assignment notebook
