Welcome to Mr. Rennalls and Ms. Orr's Classroom webpage. Here we will post calendar events, news, schedules and work assignments with due dates.
Mr. Rennalls teaches math and science. Ms. Orr teaches reading, language arts, spelling, writing and social studies.
Math: Students should be practicing the math facts nightly with flash cards for 10 minutes. Begin with addition and when it is mastered, I will write on the weekly graded facts test when to move on the subtraction, multiplication or division.
Weekly math homework is assigned on Wednesday. There is a practice maintenance I call the "cheat sheet", we do together as a class. The maintenance for a grade is assigned and is due no later than Friday.
Generally there is no science homework. Experiment write-ups are counted as test grades along with CFA tests.
Reading: Read with your child every night for at least 30 minutes.
Spelling: Words are in their agenda. Tests every Friday. AM Class words will be posted on this web page under documents manager a week early.
Handwriting: Sometimes there will be handwriting homework if we don't finish the assignment in class.
Language Arts/Writing: Usually there will not be any homework in this area.
Social Studies: Every Friday we do our Time for Kids Magazine with a quiz and another activity.
Weekly for both classes: Please be sure to sign your child's agenda each night. Also remember to sign and date the Thursday Take Home Folder of graded papers. Papers with a grade below a 70 need to be signed and returned with the folder.
This will be your child's best school year ever!
