We have completed Unit 1 of Reading and will be reviewing and taking the District Required Reading Assessment this week. Students should review all the vocabulary words from the Unit. There will be no new spelling or vocabulary words this weekJ
Hopefully, your child is well on his or her way toward meeting the September Reading Goal (one fiction chapter book and two Science non-fiction books).
Mrs. Coffin's math class
This week I sent home a letter regarding Pearson Successnet. The letters listed your child's password and username as well as the web address to access the online textbook. I have also assigned several assignments which include skills that we have been working on in class. Please utilize this excellent resource as a support for our math program.
We will have a quiz on Tuesday, Sept. 20 and will test Topic 3 by the end of the week.
Walk to School Day
Manatee Elementary School will be having a Walk to School Day on October 5, 2011. Ms. Best and Mr. Bartlett will be at Eastwind Park at 7:15am if any students and their parents would like to join us in a walk to school that morning. To allow us enough time to get to school on time we will be leaving the park at 7:30am. Walk to School Day is designed to remind both parents and students of the pleasure of walking to school but it has other benefits as well, including:
- Provide students with physical activity, which can help alleviate health problems
- Ease traffic congestion in and around schools
- Serve as a catalyst to increase walking and bicycling on a permanent basis
- Give parents an opportunity to identify any hazards or dangers along their child's route to school
We hope to see a big turnout for this important event. Even if you drive your child to school you can drive to the park and meet us there for the walk. Just go south ½ mile on Tavistock Dr. past the car loop entrance. Remember every little bit of physical activity helps.
