We will continue ITBS testing Monday through Wednesday of this week. Thank you for making sure your child is at school on time for testing. I appreciate it!
Rally Kickball Game
I hope to see you at the Tritt - Mt. Bethel Faculty Kickball Game on September 20th at 5:00 at the Walton High School Baseball Field. Be sure to ask your child about the Pep Rally that we had on Friday. We made posters and learned cheers for the game to support Rally and Kick Cancer to the Curb!
Conference letters were sent home last Thursday. Thank you for returning those as soon as possible.
Here's a look at what we're learning this week:
Math - Multiplication
We will continue focusing on multiplying using different strategies like making an array, repeated addition, using a number line to skip count, and making a picture. We will begin taking multiplication timed tests soon so I encourage you to have your child practice their facts on a daily basis.
Reading - With testing this week, we will not be meeting in our reading groups. We will be focusing on using affixes (prefixes and suffixes) to determine the meaning of words. During independent reading time in class your child should be reading a book in their lexile range which is their independent reading level. Your child may choose to read books at a different level at other times. They can find books on their level using Destiny on the Tritt website or www.lexile.com.
September Book Report is due October 6th.
Language Arts -
Writing - We will be writing a new personal narrative this week using the steps of the writing process.
Grammar - Pronouns
Spelling - R-influenced vowel patterns -are, -ire, -ore, -ure, -air, -ear
