September 19, 2016 - This week we will begin our unit on Fables, Folk Tales, Tall Tales, and Fairy Tales. We will begin working more independently and showing what we learn in a manner that we determine with parameters to ensure that the work reflects what we are learning. We will be working on story elements, main idea, and theme. We will be studying theme and what the author wants us to take away from the text.
We will begin taking home our daily math homework this week. Please note that this program is not to mastery, everything will spiral. If your child doesn't understand the work allow him/her to have some productive struggle and try to come up with some ways to solve it even if their answer is incorrect.
Mrs. Solis and I are splitting our time now. Ms. Ryan will be in class on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday mornings, and every other Wed. afternoon. Mrs. Solis will be in the class every Wednesday morning, every other Wed. afternoon, and every Thursday and Friday.
September 6, 2016 - We would like to thank everyone who was able to attend Back to School Night.
We hope everyone was able to enjoy their three day weekend. The school year is off to a great start but we know how hard it is to get back into the routine so it is nice to have this short respite.
We have begun our switching while still on site. The kids are adjusting well to to having each of us on particular days.
We will begin ELD/ALD this week and students will begin switching classes for this time each morning, 10:40 - 11:25.
Just a reminder that recorders only need to come to school on Wednesdays as that is the only time we will see Mrs. Umar.
This week we will continue our work on summarizing informational texts, citing evidence to support our answer, and staying on topic.
August 29, 2016 - Back to School Night is Tuesday, August 30th at 6pm. We look forward to seeing you in room 17!
