It is the week before winter break which means it will be a busy week at school and at home I'm sure.  A few reminders for this week, we will be taking our Unit 4 Math test this week.  The students took the practice test on Friday.  We will spend a day of review, if the students seem to need more than that we may use Tuesday as review as well.     On Friday, the students will have a Reading quiz focusing on Character Analysis.  Students have been studying characters in stories and this will start bringing this unit to a close.  Wednesday is our holiday celebration.  It will be from 1:45-2:45.I'm looking forward to what our room parents have planned and having fun!  I'm looking forward to a great week.  I hope you all enjoy your break!

Happy Holidays!

It was great meeting most of you last week during Parent/Teacher conference.  I hope questions were answered and coming into the classroom was helpful to all of you as it was to me.  If we didn't get a chance to meet or you would like to meet again in the next couple of months please contact me and we can schedule a time.  As we start putting in place new routines and procedures, please keep an eye out for announcements that will be coming home or posted here on our website. 

Some parents asked about Circle Journals, I would like to continue Circle Journals which will be going home every Friday.  In addition, we will be putting in place a system for the completed work going home.  Each week students will bring a folder home containing any checked work throughout the week.  There will be a sheet attached that parents/guardians will have to sign and send back with their child on Monday.  This will allow you to see what the students are working on during the week and allows me to see that you have seen it.  A letter will go home on Friday 12/14 along with the folder explaining it in more detail.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please don't hesitate to shoot me an email.
