Week 32

Poetry Out Loud Class Competitions

Students will begin reciting their selected poem as a part of our school's Poetry Out Loud competition next week (May 6th-8th)! I will be selecting one winner from each class period to send to the grade level competition on May 13th. The school contest will be on May 20th.

Tips for Poetry Out Loud

Is your child nervous about memorization or recitation of the poem s/he selected? Check out the great video below with tips from students who have been through the competition before!

Please Return My Books

As the end of the year approaches, I am am trying to collect any books that came from my personal classroom library. These books should have a yellow and black sticker with my name on it adhered to the cover.

Donate Old Books to Our Class!

Each year, I lose almost 100 books from my classroom library! If you have ANY books at home that you no longer need/want, please send them my way! I will give a prize to all kids who bring in books. Due to the huge reading level differences among students in 6th grade, pretty much all levels of books are welcomed. Thank you in advance!

Last Call for AR points

The last day to take an AR test and get points will be April 30th (Thursday). Please encourage your child to wrap up the book they are reading and take one last quiz!


Students who have 100 points or more (for the school year) by May 1st are invited to a pizza party during lunch (the last week of school)!
