MMC Homework Guide

May 18, 2014


     Although our normal homework guide has been suspended while we work on preparing for the upcoming SOL Test in our binders, this is just a reminder of upcoming dates and important information.


Important Dates:


May 21 and 28- These are the remaining days for the Standards of Learning Tests.  The tests will begin first thing in the morning on the 21st.  Our test on the 28th will begin at 12:30.  We will test in the following order: math and science.


June 15th- History Day and the MMC Movie Festival.  We will be showing our silent movie to the school students and our guests.  We will be having a cast party afterwards.  If you would like to donate any items for the party, we need popcorn, movie candy, drinks, and paper products. Time: TBD.


June 16th at 12:30- We will have our 5th Grade Celebration. Fourth grade will sponsor a reception for our students and guests  in our room after the awards assembly and 5th grade certificates.


Important Notes:


     Please continue to complete the weekly assignments in the SOL Study Binder and the activities on Study Island.  This is a great way to be prepared for the test.  Some parents have asked me for other online resources.  There are some terrific links that have been placed on our school website under the tab, “students”. There are two tabs with this title.  Choose the one in the yellow bar that is lower than the other tab in the top right corner.  You will see a link that says, “SOL Practice”.  There are many sites that have been collected to practice released questions from the state.


     Don’t forget to check your binder for this week’s assigned topics of review.

Week of February 9th


      There will be no need for classroom volunteers for this week.  However, if you would like to assist with setting up for the Poetry Tea, contact Catina Anderson.  She will be meeting parents on Thursday to organize table and chairs at the Quaker Meeting House.  Another opportunity for volunteering this week is through supply donations.  With 70 attendees, there is much to prepare.  Let Catina know by Thursday what you can provide off the list that was previously sent. I will purchase items on Thursday that were not chosen from the list.


    Reminder… your guest for the Friendship Tea should meet us at the Quaker Meeting House on Friday, February 13th at 1:00 p.m. Also, remember to come to school in clothes appropriate for the event.  An email was sent regarding specifics about this event regarding food items, assisting, etc.  If you did not receive the email, please contact me and I will forward you a copy.


     Students may bring in Valentine’s cards on Friday if they wish to exchange cards.  They may do this in the morning as our Poetry/Friendship Tea will constitute as our “party”.


Spelling List:  Group One will study all 20 words.  Group two will study the first 10 words. Your test will be on Feb. 6th.

Shorter than a dash, a hyphen might be considered word “glue.” It will join two words to make a compound word, such as one-way street. It may also connect a prefix with a root word to create a new one, such as post-war. A hyphen also signals a split word at the end of a line.
