    Mrs. Rudenjak's Class:

    Our school is participating in a One School, One Book. The students at all grade levels are reading Dragon in a Bag. On Fridays, there is a question and answer session about the book for prizes. The kids enjoyed it this past Friday. Please encourage your child to participate in this exciting event. I do give the students 15 minutes each day to read one chapter. 

    What Are We Learning?

    •  Early Settlers/ pre-American Revolution
    • Researching History
    • Main Idea & Details
    • Math Topic 12: Introducing Decimals

    Upcoming Events:   

    • Ongoing Wax Museum preparation(see the notice from Ms. Konopack)
    • The 30 second SPEECH due by Friday, March 24th

    Please have your child wear multiple layers to school. Sometimes parts of the building vary in temperature. We also go outside for recess if the weather permits.

    NOTE: Please check your child's backpack for excessive toys and fidgets. They are becoming distractions.

  • Dear Families,

    Please support your child at home to help them problem solve when doing homework or if your child lets you know they're struggling with a concept. Utilizing online sites is a great way to reinforce skills learned in school. 

    Also, it is imperative that your child is fluent with Multiplication facts up to 12 times tables. The topics moving forward, such as Fractions and Division,  requires the students to have mastery of their facts. Utilizing online sites or just plain old-fashion flashcards are great resources for your child to practice daily. 




    Homework Information:

    Dear Students, 

    I assign homework Mon.-Thurs. most weeks. The homework is posted on the whiteboard daily and then should be written in your student planner. The planner is used as a form of communication; reminders of assigned HW and notes to parents/or me. 

    If you forgot your Math book or need additional help with your Math HW, please use the online resources. Savvas Realize will give you examples of your math lessons in addition to math videos that will reteach the lesson. Please email me if you forget any homework in school because I might give you an alternate assignment.
