WHAT'S GOING ON????
SCHOOL DELAYS AND CLOSINGS
Remember that there is always the possibility of school delays and closings due to fog or other inclement weather. If the weather looks questionable, listen to WKVI or watch one of the South Bend television stations for updates on school delays or cancellations. The corporation has also implemented an automated message system. If you do not receive a phone call on a delay or cancellation, contact the middle school office and let them know. 

*****THE SCHOOL DOES NOT SERVE BREAKFAST WHEN THERE IS A DELAY.
LANGUAGE ARTS

We are using the "Read Naturally" system this year. Students will "cold read" the passage on Monday, and then practice it daily. They will also bring a copy of the passage home to practice every night. They will then have a final read on Friday. Our goal is to improve our percentage of readily known words and improve our reading ability.

We ALWAYS have vocabulary words to work on every week. Our main goal is to know the word and be able to say it when we see it. Spelling is extra and everyone can try. We also have the definition on the back of the flash card to give us an idea of what the word means!! Students bring home a set of flash cards every Monday that they can keep at home and work on every night.
These words are important because they are words that we see around us all the time. They are functional sight words.





MATH

We will be working on a number of units dealing with shopping store math and restaurant math. Students will learn to read menus and look for items in the store. They will also work on math problems using money.

We continue to work with money and their values. If students can identify and tell values, they move on to counting small amounts of coins. Counting by 5's and 10's is really important. We have been practicing but can always use more!!!! 

Work at Home:  Money - Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter. Be able to identify them and tell their amounts.

Time to the Hour and Half hour.  We are using the terms "half past" and " ____thirty". We are also working on time to the quarter hour. The attachment below contains some interactive games for practice. We will be working on them in school. Extra practice at home will really help.

Attachments
LIFE SKILLS
We are working on our signatures. Practice writing first names in cursive. This is very important as we move ahead and start learning about banking, accounts and other legal documents.
RECREATION AND LIESURE
We always welcome art and craft supplies that may be lying around not being used. We do many holiday crafts and could use anything from fabric to paint, and old magazines. Thanks!!!
