Amazingly, we have finished the first nine week grading period of this school year! This week we meet for conferences. Students will be released early each day this week. We have already made a good start to the second quarter. We are finishing up perimeter in math, and will test this week on Thursday. Next, we will be moving on to two digit multiplication. We finished taking notes and learning about Native Americans. We had a quiz last Friday on the first three tribes covered. On Wednesday, we will test on all of the tribes. Remember: Where they lived determined how they lived. Students can study their social studies journal, view the Native American power point on Love That Link, and look at the Kwakiutl, Hopi, and Inuit Thinglink on Mrs. Sattelmeier's blog. There will be no spelling words or test this week.
This will be Red Ribbon Week.
If you haven't signed up for parentvue yet, you will be able to when you come for conferences. There will be a table set up in the hall near the entrance.
Be sure to order items with your child's artwork from Square 1, if you haven't already. Ms. Stoddard will be sending a flyer home this week with information.

Three of our adorable
students modeling poetry reading. This was part of a lesson on identifying theme.
One of our students participated in the hair painting tent at the Addison Fall Carnival. Can you guess who it is?

Mrs. Sattelmeier had a wonderful time spraying hair color, painting nails, and assisting with tattoos at the carnival last Friday! It was great fun to see some of our students and their families enjoying the activities.

We have been working on subtracting with regrouping in math. We have also been working on rounding and estimating. A link for a Khan Academy video has been added to Love That Link for subtraction with regrouping, across zero.

We will have a test Friday, 9/22, on weather in science. Students will need to know weather instruments, weather fronts, how to read a weather map, freezing and boiling points (temperature) in Celsius and Fahrenheit, and how the water cycle works. To prepare, students can use their science textbook, science journals, the study guide we completed in class on 9/20, as well as the weather quizlet, water cycle quizlet, and weather fronts model links on Love That Link.

There will be a test on Theme in reading on Friday. Students can use classwork examples, sing the song, and use the study guide/practice pages we did in class today (9/20)to study.

If you have not signed up for Remind, but would like to, let Mrs. Sattelmeier know, and she will send an instruction page home with your child.

We survived Irma!

Some of us were a little confused about what day it was today, it seemed like a Monday rather than a Wednesday! Thankfully, everyone was safe and mostly unaffected by the storm.
We have been working on multi-digit subtraction across zeros in math. In reading, we've been learning about theme. Ask your child to sing the song for you. There will be another reading test on Friday. It will be a grade level passage with vocabulary questions, sequencing, and comprehension questions.
Since we have such a short week, we decided to postpone the spelling test until the following Friday, 9/22. There is a link for Spelling City on Mrs. Sattelmeier's blog. Students can use the activities for additional practice.
Our water cycle test will be this Friday. Check out the water cycle Quizlet link for vocabulary practice in Love That Link. The test will include the steps in the process of the water cycle, vocabulary, types of precipitation, and at what temperature water boils/freezes.

Our students had a terrific day of learning at the Fire Safety Village. Pictures to follow! Please talk with your student about continuing to make good choices as we finish up this school year. Some are having a difficult time staying on task and controlling talking. Let's finish strong! Mr. Golden has asked us to post this link to the sign up genius for field day. This is always great fun for the students.
