Our Class Web Site

As the year progresses, I will be adding class information to this site. 

                                               Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day.


A Peek at next Week:  August 28th- September 1st.


We will begin unit 1 week 2 in Wonders on Monday, August 28th. The essential question for this week is how are families around the world the same and different? For unit 1/week 2, I will read the stories and all the answer choices to the class and guide them through the directions. The assessment will be graded but the grade will not be recorded. As we progress through unit 1, the expectations for working on reading tests independently will progress. Assessment grades will be recorded beginning with unit 1 week 3.

The page that is stapled to the back of the test is an example of a constructed response. We completed this writing together so you would have an opportunity to see what it should look like. I will continue modeling and handing over more of the responsibility for these writings to your child as the semester progresses. I will also provide feedback on the writing as we progress. The grades on these will not count until the second semester.


          We will complete chapter one on number concepts on Wednesday, August 30th.  Our first math assessment will be on Friday, September 1st.  

Science/Social Studies

          Begin learning Map Skills.
