January 26-30th

Dear Parents,

I need your help!!!

Your child has been writing narrative, opinion, and informative essays this past school year.  We are now preparing for the Sage Writing Test on February 18th. Your child will be required to plan and write an argument/opinion and informative/explanatory essay in 90 minutes.

We are currently working on opinion essays.  We finished our "Clutter Essay" and we will be finishing our "Why too Much Sugar is Bad," essay this week.  I have asked each child to share their Clutter  Essay with you.  I have seen a very broad spectrum of writing this year, and it is always helpful to have parents listen and give feedback.  Some students are not getting their essays finished in class; therefore, I have asked them to finish them at home.  Students can also practice writing other essays on this site.  There are also grammar lessons to help them improve in areas where they scored low.

Your child will log on to Utah Compose to share their essay with you. 

Username:  000______________  (they should know this number.  If not e-mail me and I will send it)
Password:  ebls5

This week:
Math-Review and unit assessment multiplication of decimals.  Begin dividing decimals.
Writing-Finish opinion essays and begin compare & contrast
Soc. Studies-Revolutionary War
Music-Speaker coming on Wednesday at 10:00.
Spelling/Vocabulary-Adjectives test on Friday

Thank you for your support,
Mrs. Farmer
