Weekly Reminders


Please continue to check your child's agenda each night.  There may be reminders or notes that you need to see.  Also, make sure your child's homework matches what is written in his or her agenda.

I have all of the websites we use in class on the links sections below.  I have sent home usernames and passwords, but I can resend them if they have been lost.  These internet sites are incredible resources to use at home and WILL help your child grow!  

There is also a link under "Classrooms" on the Emerson Elementary homepage.  Click on "Learning Links" and see all of the great websites we have collected for students to use. 

To receive alerts about school closings and delays, go to www.scsc.k12.in.us to register!

"Like" Emerson's Facebook page for additional information about school activities.

I like to see who is reading over my webpage, and one way I check is by hiding a mystery word somewhere on the page for you to find.  If you find it, write it down and have your child bring it in for a prize in the morning.  Just don't forget to look over the rest of the information! 


Week of April 20th - 24th

List Words:  no new words this week

     *These words are also called High Frequency Words, meaning that these are words students will use often in their reading and writing.  These are words students need to be able to see and know quickly by 3rd grade.

Independent Reading (I.R.):

*Students read a book that is at their level each day.  During their I.R. time, they are expected to take daily notes, keep track of their books on their Reading Logs, and keep their I.R. folders organized.  They receive an I.R. grade based on their folders, how quickly and quietly they get started on their work, and how well they stay on-task.   

Topic: Units 13/14 Area/Perimeter

Vocabulary: length, width, area, perimeter


Learning Targets: Students will be able to find area and perimeter of different polygons.

Every Friday we do some kind of story problem work.  We will either do an Exemplar, a lesson from our math books that focuses on a skill for solving story problems, or past ISTEP problems.  

Grammar focus: review grammar based on standards

Writing focus: Research Writing 

The following are websites we use in class but can also be used at home as well.  

If you are able to use IXL at home, have your child do the following lessons first:
               Current Topic: Fractions (S) 
               Review: Multiplication (E,F)  Division (G,H)   Time (O)   
               Money (N)  

Spelling City:
Students can practice their words each week off of this website... includes games and vocabulary practice as well.  Please do not take Spelling Test... if you want to have your child practice at home, make sure they take Practice Test.  Thanks!

Mobymax: Students can log into Mobymax from home and practice all kinds of skills.  Please encourage your child to use this resource whenever possible!
