No Math today – we tested I-Ready today. Everybody needs to read for 20 minutes for homework. We will be testing i-Ready tomorrow and next week. We will be doing make ups for anyone who is absent or didn’t finish next week.

Cold Weather Clothing – Student will go outside if Real feel temperatures are higher than 20 degrees. If students want to play in the snow they need snow pants, boots, mittens or gloves. Please make sure that students bring an extra pair of shoes so they are not tracking snow in to the classroom.

Weekend News

Have a great safe long weekend! I wanted to let everyone know that we will test i-Ready next week, so please get sleep and eat good meals. 🙂

We will not do a new spelling list for next week because of the short week and testing. Keep reading and practice i-Ready reading and math at home if you want.

Report cards are coming home today – check your child’s folder.

Also, the students are struggling with long division – if it’s too frustrating, don’t finish it, we will work on strategies in class next week.
