We are ready for our second full week! We have school pictures on Wednesday. You can order online or order using the forms that went home last week. Students can dress for pictures on that day. I hope to send home Scholastic book order forms on Monday and ask that you order online or send orders back in by Wednesday, August 28. PE uniform orders are due this week! We will have Mass on Thursday and Friday this week. Students should wear Mass uniform on both of those days. Students who are interested in Band can try out their TOP 3 choice instruments on Thursday after Mass. I will be out on Friday. I am not sure who will be in for me yet.

Here is a peek at the week:

Language Arts:

We will review the story element of character traits. Students will identify the traits of characters in stories and identify how characters change throughout a story. They will use textual evidence to support their claims. We will begin vocab list number 2 this week. They will test over list 1 and 2 on Friday.  In writing, we are working on generating topics.


We are still working on setting up our math workshop. We will get our technology station up and going on Monday with Xtra Math and Prodigy. For now, students will use last year’s Prodigy account. We will do this until Mrs. Tieken returns. For new students or students who do not have that log in information, I will create a new one under my account. We will also do a run-through of our small group/center days. Once we get this down and do it right, we will have smooth sailing.

Social Studies: 

We are still working on the geography of the United States. We are reviewing landforms and discussing bodies of water. We will wrap this up next week and expect a quiz very soon.


Don’t forget:

Wednesday and Friday: PE                   Thursday: Choir, Band, and Mass
