Dear Families –
I hope you all enjoyed a long weekend and I cannot believe tomorrow is Thursday!! I wanted to give you an update on what we have been working on and mention again how much I love being a part of this group. All of their incredible vivacious personalities and not only a blessing but also a challenge J. That being said I will be moving the classroom out of table groups and into rows of “two” and possibly a few islands. We have had several conversations around classroom expectations and respect (for each other and me) and the unique chemistry of this group makes it difficult for many to stay on task. I am hopeful this will be a positive change and will be contacting families individually as needed. If you any have any specific questions or concerns please let me know.
Math – This past week the class started doing daily Math rotations and I believe this will be a great addition to our math time. As I am working with the kids on quick transitions this week we are working on the following stations: Meet w/me, Zearn practice, Problem Solving and Application problems. I have also added station which is a group of 22 of questions geared towards a higher level of math. The station is for those who finish early in math or any subject. Next week we will finish up Module 1 and have the end of module assessment on Thursday October 18th. Module 2 will focus on metric conversions and problem solving.
Writing – Realistic fiction stories are heating up and this is such a great group of writers!! The class continued to focus on completing their story arc, problem & solution and adding a hook this week. I have also been working on paragraph structure and tomorrow I will start dialogue – how to add what characters are saying in writing. Also included is types of sentences, punctuation and overall writing structure. This morning the class recorded their “hook” to their story on SeeSaw for you to enjoy! If you haven’t joined Seesaw please check it out!
Reading – We are continuing to work on building stamina, fluency and overall intense reading; what it looks like and sounds like. This is a real struggle for many because the chatting starts to ensue and that spirals into a classroom disruption. Each student has a reading log to complete as well as a “30 Book Challenge” for the school year; please continue to encourage reading at home nightly as well.
Social Studies – We have started our new unit and are studying where Washington is located as well as it’s unique characteristics. Tommorrow we will finish up resources, geography and the 5 regions. Next we will be looking at several tribes in our area and break up into expert groups to share with the class.
Seesaw – If you haven’t signed up please do!! This is such a fun tool for your child to share their work and daily activities. Any questions let me know!
Volunteers – If anyone wants to set up a schedule (i.e sign-up genius) please let me know!! This piece keeps falling to the bottom of my pile and I would love to get some of you in here!!

Welcome to Room 267
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say hello and touch on a few things we will be doing this week in Room 267. The first day was a huge success and I felt that many students reconnected and even made some new friends. We have 2 brand new students this year and I was proud of everyone in our class that made them feel welcome.
Planners: I did send planners home and the first homework assignmentJ. This should be shared with you by your student come up with a successful for doing homework; also they should start reading 20 minutes a night. I will also be setting up the expectation that planners are to be signed nightly by parents with the hope your child is sharing the day and upcoming assignments. Starting next week (or possibly after curriculum night) I will be implementing this process. There is so much to cover the first week of school and I want to make sure we focus on our classroom expectations firstJ.
Reading/Writing/Math: We will start this week!! I will start Lesson 1 in math Thursday and a homework page will come home. As far as reading/writing I want them to have some freedom and we will revisit expectations in all areas.
Upcoming Art Project: One of the girls (Thank you Kaitlin!) brought in a recycled soup can that was decorated with yarn and is using it as a pencil/pen holder on her desk. I love this and want to have all of the kids make one!! Please send in a soup/vegetable can with your child (cleaned and label removed) and if you have any extra yarn I would appreciate it. Any extra soup cans would be greatly appreciated as well.
Curriculum Night: General Meeting- Principal/PTA- 6:45p.m.-7:05 p.m. Grades 3-5 Classroom Session- 7:05 p.m.-7:50 p.m.
Have a wonderful night!! There will be more to come as the upcoming weeks unfold. Please do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
I am looking forward to an incredible year!!
