During the month of October, the “Littles” worked on many skill areas in ELA:  identifying/reading word families, rhyming, identifying Pre-primer & Primer sight words; increasing Words of the Day, Trick Words, and reading words with long vowel sounds (cvce).  In Math, my Grades 2/3 students have been skip counting by 10’s, 5’s, and 2’s. I have also helped my Grades 4/5 students in their classrooms on whatever skill is needed. All of my Grades 2-5 students have shown much effort and progress.  Keep it up!

My older students in Grades 6-8 ELA have also been working hard:  reading chapter books (Baseball Fever, The Sign of the Beaver), doing projects or writing activities on each book, and increasing vocabulary.  I also help Grades 6-8 Math in the classrooms with new skills such as plotting & graphing, identifying integers & rational numbers, and adding/subtracting decimals.  They also have been doing various projects relating to the skill areas such as “Drawing their Dream Home” with details and “Dream Vacation” for a week. What fun!

I am very proud of my students’ progress, effort, and continued growth in the second quarter.

Happy Halloween to all of the ghosts and goblins!  Be safe while trick and treating!

Happy fall!  Enjoy the changing of the leaves!  What beautiful colors!

My students are back in the routine of working hard.  My second graders are learning to skip count by 5’sand 10’s; eventually by 2’s and reading decodable books with rhyming words.  My fourth and fifth graders are reviewing last year’s trick words, words of the day, and skill lessons before moving onto new material. They stay in the regular classroom for Math and I provide specialized instruction to them whenever needed.

For the upper grade students, I provide specialized instruction in the classrooms for Language Arts and Math whenever needed. They are working in a new vocabulary program, “Rev It Up”, which is also being used for Spelling. Positive start!

I’m looking forward to a great year.
