L-3 News for the Week of February 21st, 2017

We will be focusing on i ready diagnostic assessments this week in both reading and math, as well as our math benchmark assessment. We will begin working on an art mural of Martin Luther King and learning more about Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. We will continue to work on our hero reports for our class quilt. On Wednesday we will have an assembly from Discovery Cube. Applications for anyone running for Student Council are also due on Wednesday of this week.

Daily assignments will be noted in our agendas. Scholar’s will also be expected to work on i Ready for a minimum of 15 mins. per day. Some scholars have shown very little progress over the last few weeks in this area. The school goal is 45 minutes per week.
