Dear Parents,

  • Parent-Teacher conferences are this week!  I have sent home a sign-up sheet.  Please select 3 different time slots that work for you.  Conferences will be ten minutes in length to accommodate all parents.  If you need additional time to talk we can schedule a longer conference when we meet. This first conference is a preferred parent-teacher, with your child waiting outside the classroom.

Here is an overview of what we will be doing this week in our CORE SUBJECTS:

Reader’s Workshop–This week, students will work on Daily Five activities.  Students will write their Reader’s Response for a reading assessment grade.  Reader’s Response letters are graded using a Rubric.  Students will meet with me in small guided reading groups to work on reading strategies.  This week’s groups will meet to practice reading strategies that will help them to connect to the text.  Students will highlight and discuss important parts of the text.  In addition, students will complete classwork activities with Word Work and Listen To Reading on Epic Books.

Writer’s Workshop-  This week,  students in 314 will complete revisions to their essays and publish them over the weekend.  Students in Rooms 312 and 315 will analyze a poem and write their own poem inspired by the author.
