Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday!! I hope this newsletter finds you well! Hopefully you have seen the Instagram videos of the instrument projects. These instruments were amazing! I was totally impressed by the students' creativity and their oral reports. This week is a busy one, of course! We are working on story elements and our second TDA of the year. Today I have an exciting lesson planned that will help us "think outside the box" in terms of theme, setting, characters and plot. Ask your children about "Wishgranter" tonight, please! We will also work in Wonders Unit 4, Week 2 and focus on idioms, subject vs. object pronouns, fantasy, and point of view. In Math we will review our constructed and extended constructed tasks today and go over the study guide tomorrow. The test will be Wednesday. Then on Thursday we will start Chapter 8 in Math, Multiplying and Dividing Fractions. There will be a review map test on Friday and we begin new SPARK groups today, based on the latest CDT scores along with many other factors. Check out the calendar section of the website to see an updated list of important dates. Thanks! Mrs. Schmoyer

Each Friday, I plan to post the daily homework for the coming week in this space. Please check it and contact me with any questions. I will provide a binder for each student on the first day of school. Please check out my supply page for some items I would like you to bring with you on that first day. Thank you again, in advance, for your support. The key to a successful school year is a true partnership between the teacher and the parents!
