Teacher thoughts

It was really fun getting to talk to a bunch of you on Wed. and I look forward to seeing more families this week. Remember that you can email me at anytime if you have questions, concerns, or ideas. We don't have to wait for our annual conference times.


We are wrapping up the trimester over the next few weeks and will be reassessing skills and levels. I will share that growth with you when reports come out before Thanksgiving break.


Thanks to those that sent in change. We raised $141 for the class library!

Scholastic Book Orders

I just got my book orders figured out. If you want to order books from the scholastic pamphlet that comes home you can go to http://scholastic.com/readingclub and use the class code PB4HN. I prefer this to sending in the paper orders, but I will do this if you want. These orders help us earn money for class book sets and our library.

What are we learning?

Math - We are on to unit 3 and wot=rking with fractions and division.


Writing - We are working on essay writing.


Social Studies - We are the history of the US before we jump into regions.
