We will be attending the Holiday Shop on Tuesday, December 10.   


    Donations are always appreciated:  Tissues, wipes, hand sanitzer, paper towels and pencils.




    Please check you child's homework folder every night. 

    Each night for homework your child will have a math sheet and should read at least 15 minutes a night.  A reading log will be sent home daily to keep track of the minutes they have read.



    Homework Folder  



    Reading Workshop

     Dear Parents, 

    Each night your child take home their book in a bag.  This book will be on their independent reading level.  Soon they will be recieiving a reading log where they will keep track of their reading.  Please have your child fill it out each night on what they read.  Don't forget to fill out the Reading Olympic logs also.  

     Words Their Way

    This year we are using Words Their Way.  You child will bring home a green folder with ablue pencil case with their word sort and a journal in which they will do their homework.  A homework sheet will come home explaining what they are responsible for.  They will have 7 days to complete the homework assignment.  They are to hand it in on the day of their assessment.  

    Reader's Workshop

    We will be continuing to do Reader's Workshop model this year.  Students will be exposed to a wide range of authentic literature, and will work with books that are considered to be at "just right" level in order to help build fluency and comprehension.  Students will learn comprehension strategies during whole group and small group instruction, and will apply their understanding in a variety of ways.  The Reader's Worksop facilitates an environment of strong independent thinkers and readers.  

    We are currently starting our nonfiction unit in Reader's Workshop.  


     We will be starting Topic 5.
