What's Happening In Room 10!

I can't believe the first month of school is already over! We have already learned a lot and have much more on the way!

Math Workshop

We have finished our first 2 topics and have begun topic 3. As I explained during back to school night the first few chapters are fast paced.


We will begin learning our multiplication when we get to topic 4. Once we begin learning multiplication it is necessary to practice facts daily!

Reading Workshop

We are currently working on citing evidence in the text as well as tracking our thinking as we read. As your child is reading at home, please encourage them to listen to their inner conversation, make connections, and ask questions. Children should be reading every night at home!


Our students are also currently being leveled to determine their independent and instructional reading levels. Once their reading level is determined a notice will go home to assist you in selecting appropriate books for your child.

Writer's Workshop

We are working hard on our personal narratives. We are learning how to write good leads, how to punctuate dialogue, adding sensory details, as well as showing not telling. We can't wait to finish our stories and to share them with our families.

Words Their Way

All students were assessed to find their developmental spelling stage. We will be working with our words in a 2 week cycle. We will be working with these words daily in order to master the spelling pattern and stage in which students are placed in.


Nightly homework for spelling is optional and can be selected from the choice menu that was sent home.

Social Studies

We are currently working on our Geography & US states unit. Children were assigned a state to research during our LATIC unit.

Robot Coding Challenge

We recently completed our first set of coding challenges!


In order to protect student privacy, I have password protected the videos so that only those who are invited to view them can. To view the videos please enter Borman10 as the password.
