SMARTER BALANCED TESTS
Students have taken the Smarter Balanced Practice Tests in class. You can view the tests and answer keys from the online website located here: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/practice-test/ Answer Keys are available by scrolling down to the link called "Scoring Guide" OR . . . .
you can view the Scoring Guide (answers) from this link: http://sbac.portal.airast.org/practice-test/resources/#scoring
Beginning tomorrow, students will be taking the Smarter Balanced Interim Tests. Scores will not be sent home. The Interim tests will help teachers practice administering the actual tests while providing them some feedback as to how their students performed. The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments (actual) will be given later in the school year (spread across a couple of weeks in May).
Testing pH
Take a look at the photos captured during 5th grade science. Students were testing the pH of various substances. You'll find the pictures at "Slideshows."
VALENTINE'S DAY PHOTOS
I posted photos of our Valentine's Day party. Go to the Slideshows link. smiley
VALENTINE'S DAY THANKS!
We had a nice afternoon celebrating Valentine's Day. I want to thank all of Room 23 parents for their support in helping to make this day special. I heard from Mrs. Siegrist that the generous donations she collected from you back at around Christmas time is being put towards party food and special surprise gifts that have been give to me. I received a wonderful comfy, soft, warming scarf and Nordstrom gift card gift from the class. So thank you for making this a happy day for students and for the teacher. Thank you to room moms who lovingly plan and organize parties! I appreciate our Room 23 family!
VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY
Just a quick note: If your child plans to bring in Valentine cards for classmates (next week Friday), please make sure you purchase enough so that each child receives one. Also, ask your child NOT to write any classmate's name on individual cards. Certainly, your child should sign his or her name, but do not address it to any specific student. We have so much to do, it will save time if cards are not labeled with student names. Thanks!
TenMarks Math Survey
Parents:
If you read the TenMarks math letter in your child's Weekly Work envelope sent home today, you will have seen the directions on how to sign up for a TenMarks online math account. I'm hoping you were successful in creating a parent account so that you can view the results of your child's math quick quizzes. Today, your child took the first of many to come. Please take the Google Form survey after you have created (or tried to create) a TenMarks math account so that I will know if you were able to join. Here's the survey link:

It would be great if you could submit your Google Form answers by Friday.
Read Blog Updates!
Reminder: Please read Blog Updates together with your parent(s). It is important to keep informed! Please don't forget. Thanks! smiley

2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR IS HERE!

Welcome to Room 23, the Best Place to Be! I am looking forward to a productive, new school school year. I hope your child is eagerly awaiting the excitement, engagement, and enthrallment that make fourth and fifth grade so very special. They will build upon what has been taught in past years and will face many new challenges as well. This should be a wonderful and memorable year.

Communication is key to helping your child succeed. I believe our class website can help to keep you informed, so that is why it is updated regularly and carefully maintained throughout the school year. Be sure to check for new announcements. In addition, I post a weekly blog informing you of what we will be covering in class. The blog is updated every Monday. Our class website offers links to many resources that support student learning. Keep informed by utilizing our helpful website resources, watching for important announcements, and reading the weekly blog.

It is a privilege to share a partnership in your child's education. There is much to look forward to.
Together, we can help your child to do his or her best!
