Mr. Nyce's Classroom
Room - 212
May 3rd - 7th
Monday will be an E - Day
The website will be updated with the up-coming information for our class and school.
I will post all links which will stay on the page without having to scroll up and down like we have to do on the google classroom. For example if you wanted to access the reading vocabulary for the current story you will be able to go right to the reading page to locate it. As students and more information is added to the google classroom (Stream) the post from me will be pushed down on the page.
Please contact me with any concerns. I also promise that your children are good hands and everything will be explained to them before moving on.
1) Our room will have Spanish on Fridays the period after lunch (12:15-1:00)
Homework - The homework will be posted before the beginning of the week on this site. The students will still have to copy it down in school, but it will be on the website and google page for review. Depending on what gets covered in school the homework may change due to changes in the class. If the homework from the website changes and the students have a different assignment in their copybook, then they are responsible for the work in their homework book. Students will generally have to study most nights and what written work there is. With the amount of work and content studying a few nights ahead is key. Remember - even though there might not be a lot of written work or any for that matter you will always have to study for homework. Trying different study techniques like: making note cards, making tests at home, etc. are always good ways to study for the tests.
I will post the home work each day on the google classroom. I will not put it up on the website.

Grades and Test packets
The last packet was sent home on Friday. All grades will or already have been uploaded to OptionC. Please review the packets and return signed when finished. The updated A/R achieved points should be on the from cover page.
This year A/R will count for a grade in reading. Each student will take a placement test (Star Reading Test) in the beginning of each trimester and then will be given a point level to achieve within a book level range. Please make sure to read early and often to strive to reach the goal and not trying to cram towards the end of the trimester. I will conference with each student about their new goals and then they will come home to conference with their parent(s) to make sure the goals are okay. I would like each student to discuss the goal with their parent(s) before sending home the A/R cards to make sure the students feel comfortable with the goal that is set. Please let me know if you have any questions. A/R points earned and the goal will be on the front of each test packet for you to review each time one goes home. You will be able to keep track of the points needed throughout the year to reach the goal. Everyone is working hard on the goals for the 2nd trimester. Continue to read and take tests.

Students are permitted to continue to wear their gym uniform or formal uniform for the remainder of the school year. Uniforms for the rest of the year - The students can begin wearing their summer uniforms. Please read the Parent/Student Handbook for a complete description of the summer gym and regular uniform.
There are only a few more to be handed in. The grades are all posted on OptionC this week. The other assignments that are handed in will be graded and added to OptionC as they are handed in. I am setting a deadline of this Friday for any of them to be handed in.
We have already completed on of their presentations for the 3rd trimester (William Penn Letter). Some of the students have already finished their Word Wall stories and have presented them also. We will work on presenting some more during our short week.
School Supplies - We are coming down to the end of year, but we are running out of pens, pencils, etc. Please check with your child on school supplies. There are a number of students that are using different color pens instead of the blue pens. Please also check to see if there are any other missing school supplies. There are also some students running out of room in their copybooks.
Chromebooks - Just a reminder to use them for only what is needed for class instruction. I will be monitoring them much more closely.

Please make sure that the parents arrange the treats and party supplies to bring in on the dates given. I will be taking them outside for a little extra recess at the end of the day to add to the B-day celebration. Please check the birthday celebrations above which explains the directions. The date next to the month is the assigned date that the treats and supplies should be brought in for each month. Dates subject to change due to schedule changes.
The code to get into our classroom is JWFFK and a sticker was placed in their homework books that displays this code. This was given to each student on the first day of school and can be found inside of their homework book. You no longer have to bring in the paper (order form) that was given out in class. If you go onto Scholastic.com and type in the code above it will prompt you to our classroom. You then order the books and they will be shipped into school after the transaction goes through.
No music due to COVID
