Welcome Back!

We have had a wonderful first week of school. You all have very kind and respectful students. I can tell that we are going to accomplish so much this year. I will send home a newsletter consistently every other week. At the beginning of the school year, there will be a newsletter coming home weekly. If there are any important notes or updates that are time sensitive, I will simply state them in an email. Please let me know if you need a PAPER copy of the newsletter. Otherwise, once I have confirmation of everyone's email addresses, electronically is the way I will be sending information home.


**When i send the newsletter electronically, only those with the provided link are able to access the newsletter.

"Getting to Know You" Activity

Next Week:

Math: We will begin our first math unit next week. We will be reviewing addition and subtraction strategies.


Writing: Please see the handout regarding our Writer's Notebooks that should be in your student's Cougar Folder. We will begin collecting ideas for our first writing piece in our Writer's Notebook.


Reading: We will continue to practice the procedures and expectations for our Reader's Workshop time. We will also be reviewing the reading strategy of "Meta-cognition" which is "thinking about our thinking". I will be asking students to stop and talk about what is going on in their mind while they are reading books to ensure that they are dong "real reading".
