First Week of School!

I'm sure we are all very excited about the first week of school. This week, we will be going over a lot of procedures and expectations for the year. This includes all of our behavior expectations in the classroom, hallway, bathroom, and cafeteria. We will also be doing lots of community building activities to make sure all of the students feel comfortable in the classroom and with each other.

We will be starting our Common Core curriculum this week! In math, we will be starting a Place Value Unit. We will be working with our ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands. In reading, we will be focusing on asking and answering questions with fiction texts.


We will be setting up our homework folders and going over what homework for the year will look like. Homework will begin going home next week.
