Weekly Wrap Up

Did you hear we’re learning how to keyboard, and your child can practice with the same program at home? Generally we take about half an hour on Fridays to build our keyboarding skills. Sometimes we sneak in a few extra minutes other days if we finish something early, but not very often. We’re using the website, Typing Club. If your child logs into the Chrome browser at home with her/her district Google account information, and then accesses the site through the district apps link in the browser (I call it the “waffle”), they can pick up where they left off at school. Once they login again in school, they won’t have to repeat the section they did at home. The key is to make sure they login with their district Google account. We’ve done this in school before, so your child should be comfortable doing it at home.

If you’re following us on Twitter you’ve seen the links to the Native American project presentations. The projects and the presentations are incredible! Your children worked so hard, and I’m so very proud of them! The projects will be on display in the hallway during conferences, and QR codes will be available so you can also view their presentations. If you don’t have a QR code reader on your device, you might want to get one before conferences.

If you’re not following our class on Twitter you’re missing out on all the great things we do each day! You can find us sharing our learning at: @MrsCarnevale3rd. Follow us! You’ll know something that went on in our room each day, and hopefully never hear “nothing” when you ask your child what they did in school that day!  :)

Conference appointments went home early this week. If you didn’t get yours please let me know ASAP.  Also, if your schedule has changed since you returned the sign up form, and now you need to reschedule, please contact me ASAP.

Here's what we'll be learning about next week:

  • Reader’s Workshop: Reading for information and main idea/supporting details
  • Writer’s Workshop: Information Writing
  • Math: Topic 6 test and begin Topic 7 - meanings of division
  • Science: Habitats

Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. I also check email frequently. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
