4-2/Newsletter Mrs. DiMarcello Week of 9/4

It was an exciting first week of school. The students have begun to adjust to classroom routines and have discussed classroom rules. Through a classroom tour, students got an opportunity to become familiar with our classroom and resources.  Students set up their desks, storage areas, and supplies. 

 We will continue to have daily discussions on respect and kindness. The class has established a “STAR” chart, Class Dojo, and other incentives to keep them on track as well as consequences to learn responsibilities in the process for caring for their work.

Students were given labels with descriptions to paste on their notebooks, folders, and Math Homework workbook to make it easier to differ to when using. More information will be discussed on Wednesday night.

  This week students took pre-Math assessments and started working on the writing process in establishing vivid sentences. Students also started their first novel in class, “The Top 10 Ways to Ruin the First Day of School” by Ken Derby. A humorous text to get the students motivated introducing them how to cite evidence from the text and make inferences.

                    Looking forward meeting you on “Meet the Teacher Night on September 11th.

 

Have a GREAT weekend.
