New Reading Homework!
Support in the Classroom
First of all, I want to thank ALL of the families in our classroom for a wonderful year so far! We have never gone without snack or any other materials we needed. Thank you so much for your continued support of our awesome class!
Many of you have been asking about how you can further support our classroom by volunteering your time. I've created a sign-up sheet of volunteer tasks and times to come in. Making copies for the week and sorting papers into mailboxes are tasks that take up a lot of my time before and after school. Having a volunteer do this allows me to devote more of my time to planning instruction. I also included a sign-up to be a "mystery reader" on Fridays--the students love to be read to, and listening to other people read is an important activity for developing literacy. You can sign up to do any of these tasks by adding your name to the Google sheet.
Thank you for your support!

Peek at the Week
**We will have our MAP benchmark tests Monday and Tuesday this week.
Math: In math this week, we are continuing our unit on fractions. Be on the look out for a lot of resources over the quarter to support your child in this area.
Language Arts: We will continue accountability in daily five this week! Each day, the students will track their choices and what they accomplished during each round. Students will have the option to listen to reading, read to someone, read to self, work on words, and work on writing.
-We are focusing on how to determine the main idea of an informational text, as well as, how to effectively summarize a text.
In writing, we will be starting a new creative writing narrative unit.
Social Studies: We are going to be starting our unit on significant historical events of North Carolina.
