What's Happening....

Just a note:

As my first year comes to an end, I cannot believe how quick it went by. I have learned so much from each of my students and I will miss them greatly. I thank you as parents for helping me get through this year, it hasn't been easy, but I am overwhelmed with the support you have given me. I hope my students will come back and visit, I will never forget my 21 students I had this year.

Reading

*Now until the end of the year we will be working on finding the cause and effect in articles or events that have happened in history.

* We will also continue to work on fluency and really digging into books. (asking questions, making predictions and connections, etc.)

Book Report: Due May 15th.

*There will be NO MORE weekly fluency going home or monthly reading logs.

***Your child will be receiving information for their book report. They had a couple different options to work with. This does not have to be a chapter book, but if it is, if it is I would hope they just started it, and can finish it before the deadline. I also hope it is a book on their level. If you have any questions please let me know.
