Our Purple reading group has been reading a book called, Top Hat, The Detective.  They will be blogging about the book and responding to each other about their thoughts.

Wonderful News

Something happened today that has never happened in the whole history of Mrs. Gibson's class......EVERYONE TURNED IN THEIR HOMEWORK!  Wow, one month into the school year and students are right on track with homework.  We were so impressed everyone had to get a ticket!!  Keep up the great work!

We took our MAPS reading test today.  Some students scored really high, while others maintained or went down a little.  I really wanted them to try their best, but we usually see a little regression in the fall scores because of being out of school for the summer.  Hopefully, by the end of the year we will see steady progress and great scores!  We will take our Math MAPS test on Friday.

Book orders were sent off today.  They should be in by the end of next week.  Also, progress reports should go home soon (I'm thinking Friday).  Keep in mind that we have had many changes since the beginning of school, so the students do not have that many grades yet.  We are now beginning to settle into a regular routine and hope to be on a normal schedule next week after MAPS testing.

Homework tonight:
Read 20 minutes

Grammar: Subject and predicate sheet

Mrs. Gibson's- Rounding through 100 thousand
Mrs. Collin's - Study for assessment tomorrow. (students have a study guide)

Have a great evening!!!  Mrs. Gibson
