Mrs. Izzo

We have had many small milestones accomplished this week! We have taken our first Wordly Wise test today! Striving for all students to be earning an 85% or better to earn our +5 points! WE learned how to write a friendly letter, how to summarize. We are still working on Turning the Question Around in our written responses for all classes. This is the first step in developing a cohesive answer. Thank you to all that have joined Class Dojo and for sharing in our day! Special thanks to those who were able to join us for Curriculum Night! We appreciate everyone's support!
