Welcome Students & Parents!

This year will be a fun, exciting, & rewarding year.  Parents, you are reminded to read with your child everynight and make sure that you check your child's agenda book everynight.  In order for your child to be successful, please remind your child to study over their notes everynight.  Notes are given everyday, so they will always have something to study.

Parents, this site is designed for you and your child.  It will keep you informed of tests, projects and wonderful things that will be going on in our class.  Please be mindful that Interim Reports go home on Thursday, September 21st as well as weekly folders.  Parents if you should have any questions, please feel free to give me a call or email me.

Social Studies:
We are currently studying a unit on Presidents.  By the end of this unit, students will have a better insight on how we elect our President and the election process.  As the culminating project for this unit, students will divide into groups to create a powerpoint presentation about the presidental candidates as well as create a mock government system in the classroomm.

We continue to read and discuss a story a week, however the story Sarah, Plain and Tall will take two weeks to throughly complete.  Vocabulary words are given on Monday and they are tested on the words and story every Friday.  Also I try to introduce a skill or two at least every week so that they are constantly learning something new.

Language Arts:
We are currently studying Chapter 1. Students were tested on units 1-6 on Thursday, September 28th.  We are now moving into the second part of the unit. Continue studying and completing all assignments.  Reading over notes everynight
is very important to key to studying.

Spelling words are introduced on Monday and tested every Thursday, except short weeks when the test will fall on Fridays.
