Unit 5 Completion

Today marks the completion of Unit 5 in both Open-Court Reading and Everyday Math. Wednesday, January 30, 2008 will be "Big Game Day" for students as they will complete assessments for both content areas.
Focused skills for the reading assessment will be vowel distinction (long versus short), high-frequency words (like sight words), select vocabulary, and word usage in context.
Skills isolated for the math assessment will be domino addition, base ten block counting, greater than-less than-equal to, money counting (and comparison), and "What's My Rule?"
If you child has been attending school regularly and actively participating, these assessments will go very well.

**Parent/Teacher Conference Week - February 4-8, 2008**
You should have received, in your child's Mail folder, your conference date and time. If you have any questions or need to reschedule please contact me as soon as possible.
