Class Promise

Our class promises to grow our brains by doing our best and choosing the harder task. We also promise to be a leader by being respectful, responsible, honest, and kind.

Its Been a Great Week!

This week we finished "Anancy and Dog and Puss and Friendship." We continued working on citing text evidence to support our answers more independently. In math, we finished chapter 2. Look for your student to bring home his/her test next week. We edited our narrative stories and had a mini celebration. We researched a place or event in Indiana this week. We learned to use Google Docs and lots of cool technology tricks.

Things to Look Forward to Next Week!

We will start a new Junior Great Book story still focusing on supporting our thinking with text evidence independently. We will start focusing on the theme of bravery. In math, we will start chapter 3, focusing on measuring things in standard lengths and non-standard units of length to measure. We will finish our Indiana project and start learning about the moon.


Please sign your child's token report and send it back to school Monday.

Monday we will start our moon unit. This will have an at home aspect of it. Each night student's will be responsible for documenting the moon phase. There will be a parent letter and instructions that will come home Monday. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up!

Mrs. Towle, our librarian, would like for students to bring a device to library this Monday. She would love if your student had a QR code reader app already downloaded. It doesn't matter which one. There are many free ones. This is only if your student has a device they are allowed to bring to school.

October 5 is National Walk to School Day. Smoky Row has held the title the last two years for the most kids that have walked to school. Help us obtain the trophy yet again this year. Plan to walk to school October 5! A light breakfast will be provided along with a photo booth and dancing!! It will be a GREAT time!
