Thank you!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!


Thank you for those of you who came to Curriculum Night last night. I really like the opportunity to get to see you all face-to-face.


If you were unable to come, our class "handbook" is now uploaded on our website. I will be sending home a paper copy with students next week as well. Please email me if you have questions after you have read through it.


A link for our class website is listed below.

Next Week:

Math: We will complete our first unit in math next week. We will be discussing "bar model" drawing, which is a way to represent information in a word problem.


Writing: Students will begin g oing through the "Writing Process" with their first writing idea. We will be discussing how writers change and make alterations in their writing.


Reading: We will begin practicing what it should look like to write a response about our reading. I will send some examples through email so you can see what is expected from their reading homework in October.


Social Studies: Next week we will immerse ourselves into the year 1776. Fife music and all. The students will be able to describe the importance of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution by next week. i LOVE this unit.
