1/21 - Spirit Day! WEAR PURPLE
This year, I will be team teaching with Mrs. Levine and Mr. Casias. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org However, please be respectful in allowing me ample time to respond. Instructional time does not allow for response to emails.
This is also important with regard to dismissal, if there is a change to your child's dismissal plan please be sure to send in a note or call the main office (732-833-4650) as I could be absent, or I may not get to see the email until the end of the day.
Here's what we are working on......Students are working on Topic 6: Students will use models and strategies to divide decimals.
Reader's Workshop: Students are working on Unit 2: Nonfiction Reading. Students will study the complexity of text features and explore different topics while developing skills such as researching and note taking.
Writing: Students are working on Unit 2: Information Writing. Students learn about the importance of primary and secondary sources, as they develop themselves as researchers who use tools for deeper understanding.
Please show your child that their homework is extremely important. Make it a priority; provide necessary supplies and a quiet work environment. It is a valuable aid in helping students to reinforce what is learned in the classroom and make the most of their learning experience. Set aside a daily time and provide praise and support. If I can offer any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Our lunch is at 12:15. It is recommended that the children bring bagged lunches. Hot and cold lunches will be available for purchase through food services (parents can load money onto accounts via the food services website). We will not being have snack in class . The students will be allowed to bring in water bottles.
Please be mindful of students with allergies. We are a peanut/nut free classroom. Please keep in mind if you eat a breakfast containing these ingredients it would be helpful to wash your hands thoroughly before getting to school. If your child is allergic to nuts and not required to sit at the nut free table during lunch, please be sure to send in a note the first day of school.
The District Tech Tool Kit and Student/Parent Tutorials are available to help you with some common tech problems and document questions.

Please label everything that comes in, including water bottles. And don't forget sweatshirts/jackets as the weather will start to get cooler! This can be as easy as pinning a ribbon or piece of fabric inside the clothing, so you DO NOT have to write on it.
- In the backpack, it is also encouraged to have an extra mask incase the 1st one gets misplaced or dirty. Please be sure that the clean masks are in a labeled bag or container. Dirty masks will just be put in their backpack so you know the difference.Please remember that it is mandatory that the children wear masks all day.
- Our room gets chilly so I recommend the students bring a sweatshirt to keep in their backpack, especially at the start of the year when it is much warmer outside than in our classroom!
- Please send in a note if there will be a change in dismissal for your child. All dismissal notes are sent down to the office in the morning. It is IMPORTANT that you date these notes, include your child's full name, and my name.
Tissues, baby wipes, sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, and pencils/erasers.
