“Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.” ― Daniel J. Boorstin 



    Please Note:

The school wide expectation for students is to read or be read to for at least 20 minutes a night.

What We’re Learning

  Our school this year will be emphasizing the Responsive Classroom, which is an emphasis on establishing rules and appropriate behavior using consistent language and techniques all day long.

 Goals, expectations and the “social curriculum” in the first few weeks of school are critical to the overall success of the entire year.  We are working on a sense of group, establishing rules/consequences, and guided discovery. 

Building a sense of group includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

We will also do a variety of activities and assessments that will allow individuals to show where they are academically.  This will allow for the teacher to better meet the needs of each student. 

What We’re Learning

Please note that the school wide expectation is for every student to do 20 minutes of reading.

Spelling Words for November 27 - December 1













Math:  In morning meeting we work through a word problem and count.  We are working on number sense and mastery of basic addition and facts.  Most have mastered place value to the hundreds place.  We have been working with telling time to the quarter hour, counting money values up to $.99, and basic geometry.  

English Language Arts: We work with our Reading Street series weekly.   For a half an hour each day the students participate in RtI which targets reading skills.  The class enjoys being read aloud to and modeling fluency is essential in learning to read.

 Writing – We will be writing about topics surrounding the upcoming holiday of Christmas.
