December is here!


Greetings, Rosebank families! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving break together. Can you believe December is here? The class has been working hard the past week on their tests to showcase their growth since July. I am excited to share this information with all of you on upcoming Report Cards.

Weekend Homework – AR Read 35 Log/Achieve Thought Question/Weekly Progress Report

This weekend your child is to read their AR books for 35 minutes and write a summary on the reading log. The other assignment is to complete ONE Achieve Thought Question from the article “Give Some Love to Greens.”  The prompt on Achieve is: In your reading, you learned that a study was done on adult Americans. What did the study find? Why does the government want people to eat more fruits and vegetables? Quote the Article in your answer.

Please have your child click on “Include in Your Answer” so they know how many sentences or paragraphs to write based on their Achieve level. The last homework reminder is to please take a look at your child’s Weekly Progress Report, note their Achieve articles and AR progress on the yellow sheet. Please sign and have your child bring back to school Monday. Thank you for your help!
