What a privilege it is to have the opportunity to help these children thrive and grow! They are doing so well!
We have completed our beloved read aloud, "A Long Walk to Water". Please ask them about this book! They will be enjoying a group project in class to culminate our understanding of the text. We are moving on to our next read aloud immediately, which is titled, "On My Honor". This book addresses the consequences of our choices and is very timely for their age as they move into middle school.
In Social Studies, we are celebrating freedom for Freedom Week. We will then be moving on to Unit 6: Founding the Nation, because it will explore ideas and concepts that relate to our current election season.
Their spelling list will be found in their Homework folder. Please ensure they are reading every night for twenty minutes, and confirm that they read by initialing their reading log. Their AR goal should be met by Oct. 6th (the deadline for the first 9 weeks).
You will find daily homework in my calendar. Of course each day is subject to change as I determine what is best for the children. I will communicate any changes from the calendar through email or in your child's agenda. Please know that morning work is always due the next day if not finished in class. This will not be posted on my calendar as homework, but it is the expectation that they complete it at home and turn it in.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
