    ixl: I carefully select these skills based on what we are studying in class.  Students should work on these skills as they are assigned each week. They are meant as extra practice to help achieve mastery BEFORE taking the weekly grammar test and the math chapter tests and Learning Checks.  Students need to achieve 80% or higher on each assigned skill to receive full credit (100%). Students achieving 100% on every skill will earn extra credit (105%). I will take an ixl participation grade for both language arts and math right before interims and again right before report cards.


    I post the upcoming skills each Friday which means we have not yet covered those skills in class.  Those interested can get an idea of what will be covered in class the next week.  The students will be given time in class to complete them, but I understand that students work at different speeds and may want to work on them at home as well.  Many skills are quickly learned with the ixl tutorial, but if your child is frustrated, please hold off on that skill until we have covered it in class. I do not want the students practicing skills incorrectly, and I need to assist the students as needed.  Thank you for your help.  :)

    This week ixl LA:  F.10, F.11, Z.7    (Quarter 3 Language Arts Skills due Thursday, 3/22: C.6, D.4, D.8, D.19, D.25, E.2, F.3, O.2, Q.18, V.5, X.5, X.6, X.7, X.9, Z.4)

    This week in KidBiz: "CAR OF THE FUTURE?": Students will not have a task card or Thought Question again this week. Although students may work on KidBiz at home, they will have time to work on it in class each day. Depending on how long it takes them to complete other tasks, your child may have to finish the required activity at home. 



    AR GOAL: Read 20 minutes each night (or more!) to meet 2nd quarter’s goal of 200,000 words with an average of 85% or higher.  Goal is due by 3:00 on Tuesday, March 20th. Any words your child earned over the required 200,000 from 1st and 2nd quarter may be used for 3rd quarter's goal.  I can break down your child's AR books into smaller pieces to help reach the 200,000 word goal. A good rule of thumb for fourth grade is about a point a day. So, if the book is worth 3 points, your child should be able to read it in about three to four days, if reading on his/her recreational reading level.
