WELCOME TO MS. MARTORANA'S CLASS
Wednesday, January 23, 2019Hello! I hope you are enjoying the 2018-2019 school year so far.Parents, please check your child's planner nightly. I tend to start noticing many missing assignments as we get started with nightly homework, and part of that is some students fail to copy them in their planner daily. It is rare that the class has NO homework. If you feel your child is not writing down what is needed, let us know. We will sign planners IF the student brings the planner up and IF the parent signs the planner so we know that they have reviewed it.Students will be learning words from the Sitton Word List. This is our way of learning the basic spelling words that students are expected to know. They will get homework such as ABC Order, Three Times Each, and Syllables.The students will take the STAR Reading Test by the end of the monnth. Their new ZPD Zones will be written in their Student Planner. Please check that your child is reading their AR book nightly so they can achieve four AR tests at a 70 or above. Summer books do not count for the four. They will receive a separate grade for them. Don't forget they will have Home Reading Log to do each night. A new one will come home each Monday and the previous one is due on Monday.Ms. Avis will be teaching Social Studies and I will be teaching Health for the first half of the year.Our first writing Unit will be narratives.Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.Wednesday, January 23, 2019Please feel free to contact me by phone, note, or e-mail at any time. Keep checking those planners for homework and possible communication.
