Use http://bit.ly/2c4ol3P to get to the Pearson Easy Bridge Site. Login with your student ID number and password is the first name, 05 (zero five). Email me if you need any assistance.Please keep practicing your multiplication facts, as mastery of these is ESSENTIAL for success in fifth grade.

In Readers Workshop, we are writing Literary Essays and practicing our written responses to fifth-grade level texts. These texts require the students to think analytically, which is a skill that is repetitively practiced in fifth grade. Students should be reading EACH NIGHT for at least 30 minutes (usually Fiction), taking notes on stickies, and logging their progress. Refer to the Reading Contract that was signed in the notebook for information about reflections.
We also have a fabulous digital subscription to Scholastic News! Enjoy access at home by going to www.scholastic.com/sn56 and logging in as a student. Our password is Konopack204. Thank you, PTN! Use THIS LINK http://sciencespin-36.scholastic.com/ to get to Science Spin. Our class password is Konopack204.
