What's Happening in Room 15

These Apps should be on your child's iPad as of today:






*A new App Request Form will be coming home next week.


I am ready for some volunteers! Please send me an email if you are available to volunteer and/or what day and time works for you. In the past, I have had parents choose to come bi-weekly or every week. I would love help with copying, laminating, and working with small groups of students. I look forward to hearing from you!


We are continuing our addition and subtraction unit.


We will continue with comprehension strategies. We will be reviewing Asking Questions and starting to discuss Visualizing.

Please make sure your child is reading at least 20 minutes every night.


Our 6 + 1 Traits of Writing unit is completed. We will start our Constructed Response Unit. The students will learn how to respond to text and cite evidence.


We are learning about Rocks and Minerals. We are starting our next experiment on Monday! We will be making a mineral garden.

Learning with the iPad

Students were introduced to Padlet this week. We started playing with it by creating a Book Ideas page. They can add to the page all year and refer back to it when they want a new book to read. We talked about how to be a good Digital Citizen while posting ideas. Also, we read an article about Galileo and practiced using question words to ask questions about what we read. They did a great job! : )
