Welcome to Mrs. Massielo's
Happy March! Spring is coming, thankfully.
Our special schedule is as follows:
Recess and Lunch: 12:40-1:30
Monday: Physical Education 12:05-Please be sure to wear sneakers
Tuesday: Art 11:55
Wednesday: Library 12:05
Thursday: Music 12:05
Friday: Computer Lab 12:05
Please have your child practice basic math facts daily. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are necessary for math success. We are working on problem solving and data interpretation. We started working with fractions.
There are links on this page for the children to get extra practice in math and reading. Please encourage them to do so.
We are working hard finding evidence, reading for meaning, understanding non-fiction text features and using good reading strategies. We have been doing lots of work with fairy tales. We are concentrating on story elements and how they effect each other. We will be creating our own fairy tales beginning next week.
Homework is nightly and is written in his/her assignment book every day. It is also on the calendar on this web page. Please be sure your child reads nightly and completes any other assignment that is written in the assignment book. Each block of 15 minutes of reading is worth one step on the reading log. Please check the work nightly.
Please look in your child's Boomerang folder nightly. Anything that is on the keep at home side please keep at home. We need to try to make these folders last since I don't have any extra ones. If we overstuff them then they will rip. Thanks for your attention to the folders.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns. Email will be the most efficient because I will check it in the morning, lunch break and after school. My email address is Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org. You can message me on our class Dojo page as well. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
You can also call before or after school or you can leave a message during the school day. The school phone number is 267-599-2440.
