Reading

We are continuing with our book clubs! Reading has been an interesting mixture of watching the students independently read and complete their jobs, and then work cooperatively with their group holding discussions on what they've read. We will continue and wrap book clubs up next week.


We also took a reading checkpoint this week. I will post grades as soon as I have them all graded and have given any make-up opportunities. Thank you for your patience :)

Language Arts

In LA this week we continued working on small moment stories and writing on regular lined paper. Students are doing an excellent job remembering all of the rules to lined paper. We are working on really stretching out sentences to make them more meaningful and interesting. Next week we will be picking a story to publish and working on peer editing before hand. :)

Our Boosterthon fundraiser is in full effect! Students can register (with your help) on funrun.com and that is where you can input pledges per lap. All of the proceeds from this event are going to be put towards our new Hamilton Elementary Playground! We are strongly encouraging students to contact grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, family friends, and anyone else this weekend to try to get pledges per lap. Every little bit helps and we appreciate all of your support. There are also class incentives depending on how much we make, as well as individual incentives and prizes for students as they gain pledges. :)


Students can earn a special prize for getting any pledges THIS WEEKEND! We can do this!


** Miss. Meisner's class is at $8 per lap

** Mrs. Bitz's class is currently at $28 per lap.
