Soaring to New Heights

October 7, 2016


Thank you for setting aside some time to talk with us at conferences last week. We learned a lot! We'll continue to move forward and stress the importance of a growth mindset so your kids keep learning!


Each teacher will be doing something a little different during their reading block this year. Some different styles of teaching will include Daily 5, guided reading, literature circles, whole group novels, and small groups.


Since Topic 4 and Topic 5 both cover division, we are only assessing over Topic 5. If you want to help, you can encourage your child to practice basic division facts at home!
