Classroom Happenings

This week in reading, students will be sharing the main idea of the books they have read during our last novel unit. Students will then participate in a duscussion about what the our books have in common. In writing, students will be working on their reflection pieces for our Ageya trip, and in math, we will continue our study of division.

What's Next

This week we will be starting abother novel study. We will be reading Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. After each section of the reading, students will answer a series of questins to help them identified the main idea of the text that they have just read. Students will be drawing information from the book to help support the conclusions that they have drawn. This process will require students to synthesize the text and ask themselves the question: "What is the author really getting at in this section of the book".

A Note From the Nurse

It is a good idea to check your child’s head for lice on a weekly basis. Good lighting is the key to finding those pesky bugs. If you think your child may have lice, let the school nurse know so she can follow up.

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon! Monday October 27th--Friday October 31th, the Book Fair will be open all week during the school day. The Book Fair is open all day both days of Parent/Teacher Conferences.


Tuesday October 28th 4:30-6:30 is Family and Friends Night at the Book Fair with door prizes and refreshments. Come one and all and help support the library!


The Students go to the Book Fair during their regularly scheduled library classes and during after lunch recess. They may buy books and/or make wish lists that their teachers give to the parents during Parent Teacher Conferences. This gives the parents a chance to see well thought out book requests from their children. Teachers will also pick out books that they wish for in their classroom. Parents and students have a chance to buy a book and donate it to the classroom. A personal placard in the book denotes the donation.


You may go to our Scholastic Book Fair homepage at the following address for book previews, dates, and more:
