Good Day Families!
This week, your poor, poor children will get tested to death! 🙂 In reading, we’ll take our Unit 1 Test, which we will spread out over 2-3 days, so it’s not so overwhelming. Because it’s a Unit Test week, there will be no spelling words this week.
In Math, we will also take the Unit 1 Test. We will also spread this out over 2 days, and maybe a third day in case kids didn’t get finished. This is the only “official” grade the kids will have for Math in quarter 1. Therefore, 1s and 2s might be a common score on report cards. Don’t panic if you see one of those grades, knowing this is the only grade your child has been given at this point. With practice and hard work, grades will get evened out during the course of the year as we take more assessments. Due to all the testing, I’m only anticipating one new homework assignment this week.
Monday – Unit 1 Test
Tuesday – Unit 1 Test
Wednesday – Unit 1 Test/Reteach
Thursday – Homework 2-1
Friday – No Homework
Conferences are coming up on October 2nd and 4th. I’ve attached a conference schedule to the weekly email, and will post it on the web site, as well. Most of you signed up at Back to School Night, but there were a few names I didn’t see. Therefore I slotted you into one of the few openings I had. Hopefully the times work for everyone!
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
