Hi wonderful parents,


I hope your all having a great weekend. So, last week your students really got “Back in the saddle” and, they are doing a great job.


Last week we finished up with Language arts NWEA. I am very impressed with how hard your children worked. A couple of changes I am able to make. Your students expressed that this test is long, and they get tired. So, with this test, we can break it into two parts, they may sit wherever they would like, and of course peppermints.


This Wednesday, we will start the NWEA math test. THe same ideas as above apply, we can split up the test, so know one gets tired.


NOW- I can not split up the CMAS, however it is a much shorter test in terms of questions asked. NWEA can be 38-43 questions long, that’s a lot. CMAS tend to have a two part math , and a two part english language. Each part is 10, maybe 13 questions. Now, having said that, every year things can change. 

I hope that is helpful.


Next week:

Reading street:The Great Kapok Tree- all Spelling and Grammar is on this story.

Math for 4th grade long division- this is the first year students have not cried about long division, I AM THRILLED for them:)


We will finish the Pillars of Islam- and, wow, wow, wow, your students are wise, and interested, and they are putting information in an putting it all in an historical perspective.



So- Holiday Party: I think and feel that all of you worked so hard on Ancient China Day, I am wondering how you feel about a low key Holiday party. We could make Snow Globes, I can get a template for this craft- then cookies, cocoa, and a movie the students choose.


We could do something for the local food bank...


If that sounds lame- I am open to however you all want to celebrate:)


Kindness: We are really focusing on kindness- at the end of the day, being kind is the most important thing.


Thanks so much for all you do - each and everyone of your amazing students are wonderful!


Ms. Gordon
