Next week we will have a shortened week because of Labor Day.  Along with that, the students will be taking the reading MAP test during first period on Wednesday and Thursday.  Because of the different schedule, we will be working on unit 1, week 5, vocabulary and stories.  The stories are much shorter during this week, and week five is not a testing week.  With two days of MAP testing, the students didn’t need to take another weekly test on Friday.  Then, on the week of September 9-13, we will go back to unit 1, week 4, and have the test on Friday, September 13.

The students will turn in their writer’s notebook on Tuesday, September 3.  A list of what should be included is on Google Classroom.  All students turned in their “Who am I? ” writing activity today.  They are posted in our 6B pod.  You’ll have to check them out at conferences and see if you can find your child.

Speaking of conferences, Parent Teacher Conferences will be September 23 and 26 from 3:30 to 6:30.  The 6B teachers will all be in the pod, and academic connection teachers will be in the cafeteria.  We do not have scheduled conferences in middle school.  Parents form a line and talk to their child’s teacher.

The students all chose their next literature book.  In the AM class, the choices were Freak the Mighty  or The Cay.  In the PM class, the choices were Freak the Mighty or Small Steps.  Literature groups will meet on Thursday.  Freak the Mighty will read to page 79, The Cay to page 72, and Small Steps to page 90.  The students will also be writing a literature response.

I hope you all have a wonderful three day weekend!  Enjoy!
