Welcome Back!

I am looking forward to the morning bell wishing everyone back after a long winter break! Just a few reminders about this week! First of all we have PE in the morning. I know of a few students who brought their gym shoes home, so please check the backpack! Also, don’t forget a snack and water bottle.

This week we will begin our reading homework and students have free choice to read whatever they want. In the classroom we will be in book clubs and we will be reading Adventure/Survival stories. I will be modeling lessons while reading The Hatchet. The growth mindset theme for this month is “Feedback… it’s a gift”. We will be practicing peer evaluations throughout this month while in our book clubs.

I wish you a very Happy New 2019 and look forward to our continued work to get our children ready for 5th grade!
