For each extra credit turned in students will receive 2 bonus points on their test.
Today each student got a worksheet with a crossword and a word search. If it is turned in by 8AM tomorrow I will give them 3 bonus points on spelling and 3 bonus points on vocabulary. If it is turned in after 8 AM they can still receive 2 points for each. I told them that they may use their spelling/vocab list to help them.
Students are recieving next weeks spelling and vocabulary words today. The test will be on Thursday, March 2nd!
Please remind your student to take advantage of the extra credit homework. Those who do the home almost always pass. Most who do not do the homework almost always fail the tests.

We will be having a unit test in writing tomorrow. We reviewed today in class. I also sent a review home today with an extra credit option. Students are to write sentence practicing recent grammar that we have recently covered. If they do the practice work and get a parent signature they will get 10 bonus points on their test. Here are areas of the study guide to focus on:
New Concepts: Conjunctions, Abbreviations, Quotations, and the following comonly confused terms: then, than, a lot, already, all ready, all right
Reviewing Concepts: Collective Nouns, Regular/Irregular Verbs, Active/Passive Voice Verbs, Subject-Verb Agreement
We will be reviewing for a test tomorrow in class with KAHOOT. Students may bring a technology device to use if they would like. I will also have ipads available for students who do not have their own. Please remind them that they may not have them out in the halls or any other class and they must be turned off when we are not using them in my classroom.
I just wanted to remind parents that the 5th grade Valentine Parties are tomorrow at 2:30pm. We ask that all snacks for the party be non sugar items. Students will get plenty of candy and treats from each other with their Valentines. Parents may join their student’s homeroom for their party if they would like. We will be having regular classes until 2:30. If you plan to check your child out early please let the office know when you check in.
