Welcome to Mrs. Kelly's Class!!

(The Sequel)


Math:  We will be reviewing all math skills taught this nine weeks for our Math Benchmark which will be Monday, 11/5.  You can help your child at home by practicing all of Chapter 1 and 2.


Writing:  We will be continuing to practice sequencing stories, as well as nouns.

Science:  We will be starting a new unit on cycles.  Life cycles, water cycle, phases of the moon, day/night, cycles of the tides.

Reading:  We will be reviewing and working on all skills taught this nine weeks.  We will be taking our Reading Benchmark on Monday 10/29.


I will send home reports of your child’s scores on their benchmark tests as soon as I get them.  Remember, this is an indicator of how well your child will do on the SOL’s in May!  Remember to do your best!


On Wednesday, October 31st, we will be having our October Bobcat Buck Activity.  ALL students will be allowed to wear their Halloween costumes to school that day (please check for appropriateness—no guns, weapons, masks, or blood please)  Students who have 30 bobcat bucks will be allowed to participate in a costume contest and games.  I need a few parents to send in Halloween prizes for the three winners, as well as any fun games/activities you may like to share.  Lastly, I’d like to do my pumpkin math again, so I need 4 small (5-8 pound) pumpkins.  If you have one, please send it in!!  Thanks for all you do!
