Week of 10-18-21

Welcome to a new week! Here’s what’s happening:

*I want to give a huge shout-out to last week’s Student of the Week, Delilah!!! I am so sorry I didn’t post her shout-out last week, but it was a bit crazy & time flies when you’re having fun!

*Congratulations to this week’s Student of the Week, Maya!

*One more week until all old assignments are due. Anything not turned in will get a score of 0. If you don’t know how to check your child’s missing work, let me know and I can help!

*Fall Fest is this Friday! It’s from 6-7 and you can pre-order your entrance at a discounted rate. Forms were sent home last Friday.

*Speaking of Friday…this Friday is Picture Day! Make sure to dress in your finest. If you plan on ordering, you can fill out the order form that came home about a week ago & send it in by Friday or complete it online.

*Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming in November. They can be done in person or on Zoom. Let me know which one you prefer.

*If you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me at: tattaa@dearbornschools.org or text me on Class Dojo.

Week of 10-11-21

Welcome to a new week! Here’s what’s happening:

*This Wednesday is a Late Start. We’ll see you in line by 9:55am.

*This Thursday is our Module 1 math test. Therefore, a study guide will be sent home on Tuesday and we will review it on Wednesday.

*The countdown is on…2 weeks left to turn in any first card marking assignments! You SHOULD be getting emails every Friday to notify you of your child’s missing assignments. If not, your child should be able to pull it up on Schoology. If they don’t remember how, let me know. I can show you!

*I know some kids are struggling with the math in this module. I work with small groups during math time, but also encourage the kids to watch the math videos and use the Homework Helpers. The videos are posted on Schoology everyday. We’ll keep working on decimals and not give up!

*We need your help! Fall Fest is coming on Friday, October 22. We would love any candy donations so the kids can trick-or-treat outside of our decorated windows. The PTA is also looking for any volunteers, so let me know if you can help.

*Speaking of windows, our class has voted on a nuclear factory theme. If you have any materials that can help, or can help decorate, please let me know!

*Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming next month. As soon as I know more details, I’ll let you know about meeting times & location.

*As always, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me at: tattaa@dearbornschools.org or text me on Class Dojo.

Week of 10-4-21

Welcome to a new week! Here’s what’s happening this week:

*Congratulations to our first Student of the Week, Elyana!

*The spelling words have been posted in Schoology in the ELA course. Please help remind your child to study them every night. We are going to try taking a test on Wednesdays to check our progress. If a student gets 100% on Wednesday, then that will count for their score and they don’t have to take the test on Friday. IF they score less than 100%, they will still have to take the test on Friday.

*Friday we finish Module 1 in math. On Monday we will review and the students will get a study guide to practice. The Module 1 test will be on Tuesday, October 12.

*Speaking of Friday, this Friday is a Half Day. Dismissal is at 12:05.

*All ELA assignments are posted on Schoology. If you don’t know how to get email updates on your child’s progress, please let me know.

*We need your help! Fall Fest is coming on October 22 and we need help decorating our windows for the Window War. We also need someone to help pass out candy. Please let me know if/how you can help! Thanks!

*As always, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me at: tattaa@dearbornschools.org or text me on Class Dojo.

Week of 9-27-21

Welcome to a new week! Here’s what’s happening:

*The weekly spelling words have been posted in Schoology. Please help your child study them every night for Friday’s test.

*Miss Mary in the kitchen had to flip flop a couple of days this week for lunch. Therefore, Tuesday we will have halal sweet & sour chicken and Wednesday will be Bosco Sticks.

*Please help your budding musicians to remember their instruments for class with Ms. Hart on Tuesdays.

*Your child’s mid-module test will be coming home on Tuesday. I have a couple of students who need to finish it before I can send the scores home. Please be on the lookout for the bear stamp. That means your child received a score of less than 80% and it needs to be signed and returned.

*Also, this math module has been tricky for the students. Please remind them to use their Homework Helper AND the videos that review the day’s lessons that I’ve posted in their Math course in Schoology. If you see your child struggling, you can also give them the other questions from their homework for more practice. I give them an Exit Ticket to check their understanding (it doesn’t go on their report cards) and then I know what needs to be reviewed that day. It also shows me who I need to work with in a small group.

*The Book Fair is happening at Nowlin this week! Our day to shop is Wednesday. Your child got to preview it today and should have brought home a list of books they are interested in. If you’d like them to purchase anything, we’ll be shopping on Wednesday afternoon.

*Book Bingo is coming this Wednesday, September 29 from 5:30-7:30pm. You can purchase a bingo board for $1 and there will also be refreshments.

As always, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me at: tattaa@dearbornschools.org or text me on Class Dojo.

Week of 9-20-21

Wow what a busy week this has been! So much has been happening, so let’s jump into it:

*This Friday is our first math TEST. Therefore, a study guide will be coming home on Wednesday and we’ll review it in class on Thursday.

*Please help remind your child to bring their chrome book and charger everyday. Especially because many ELA assignments will be done electronically.

*We still need a Room Parent to represent us at the monthly PTA meetings. If anyone is interested, please let me know ASAP!

*The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Nowlin September 27-October 1 and we need all hands on deck! Please consider signing up at one of the slots below to help our students with cashing out their purchases! Many hands make light work!
