The sixth graders are having a very good year. They enjoy helping the kindergarten children at recess and look forward to the days that they have "K Help."
The students have been busy with their independent reading and are logging in and summarizing the books they have read. Reading logs can be handed in at any time. In order to meet the diocesan requirement of twenty-five book a year, students should try to read two books every month.
Speaking of reading, the easiest method of ordering from Scholastic is online at www.scholastic.com/bookclubs. Use our one-time Class Activation Code when you register: LMVKP If you wish to pay by check, please make check out to Scholastic Book Clubs. (Please do not send cash with the orders.) Thank you.
The sixth graders have a subscription to Storyworks magazine. The articles can also be found online at storyworks.scholastic.com. The students can log in at the student site using the student password. (The password is the name of our "class pet" followed by my room number.)
Please remember to send in an absent note with your child when he/she returns to school.
You may have some questions about the Common Core Standards. The intent of the standards is to ensure the success of students in college and careers to be literate individuals in the 21st century and to be competitive internationally. The following Web site is a good resource to explain the CCS.
Thank you for supplying your child's homeroom with tissues, paper towels, and wipes. They are greatly appreciated!
