Apple, Red, Fruit, Vitamins, ...

The beginning of the year has been great!  We are enjoying getting to know your child and we are excited about this year.   Thank you for your help in making sure your child is prepared each day for school and learning!


Here are the high points of the week:

We continued to review the Oakley Way and are practicing the procedures that will help us be successful all year.  Please continue to ask your child about how we do lunch, hallway behavior, or recess.  That will reinforce our review of the Oakley Way.


We are organizing our materials and putting systems in place to keep everyone organized.  We got our computers late last week and have spent time this week trying to get logged into them.  We started Reflex Math and Lexia Core5 as well this week.  Your child can access both of these programs at home.  Using these programs at home will help them with their math and reading achievement levels.


If you have not turned in your parent papers, please do so as soon as possible.  Most students have purchased their agendas.  These are three dollars each.


*Math- We continued our work with exponents this week and began units in our Investigations Math curriculum.  We still don’t have our student workbooks for Investigations but we hope to have them soon.  This week we reviewed some 4th grade concepts when we worked with arrays, factors, and multiples.  Your child will have math homework every Monday and Wednesday.  Monday will be a review sheet of concepts learned in previous grades or this year.  Wednesday will be word problems that will be graded based on the rubric in your child’s math notebook.  There is also a flow map to use when solving the problems.  Your child will lose points on their grade if they don’t follow all of the steps on the flow map.

*Science- We continued our study of cells.  We will wrap up our unit on cells with a quiz tomorrow, Friday, 9/9.  Please make sure your child studies for this quiz using their science notebooks.  We will be studying the human body next.  Fun!!!!!!  

*Language Arts/Social Studies-We are still working on building stamina.  We will begin discussing themes of texts soon.  Please make sure your child reads at home each night.
