Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cís new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. The district will be providing training to all teachers on score interpretation. More information will be forthcoming to parents. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

Ms. DeAngelis

We have a new math curriculum this year using the Eureka Modules. Students will also be using ZEARN daily in math.

Is reading part of your family's daily routine?

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

TECHNOLOGY- 5th Graders are now 1:1 using Lenovo Laptops. We will be using technology all through our curriculum.

Muisc/Band/Orchestra will be on R-Days for our classroom. Please be sure your child has their instrument for their sectional on these days.

Quarter 1
Math-Place Value & Decimal Fractions
Your child has a Math workbook & a math journal with daily classroom notes. These should be going home nightly to refer to for homework. The practice sets are done in class and will be the pages in their workbooks right before each night's homework assignments.

Reading-What does it mean to adapt? How does where you live affect how you live? How do people around you influence the way you adapt?
