•  Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know. - Daniel J. Boorstin

    Welcome to the New School Year!

     We made it through the first week and are diving right into our ELA work with passion!  In 5th grade we have started our Journeys series and are learning new vocabulary and spelling, reading paired texts, writing responses and learning to read with expression.  The Journeys book is available at home online through the Think Central website.

    Our 6th grade classroom is an interactive, team teaching environment designed to meet the learning
    styles of all students.  We incorporate technology into our content lessons, work in small groups, partner share and also encourage independent studies.  Currently we are analyzing informational text and text features.



    Students will be assigned homework nearly every night.  Homework will be posted in the classroom and here daily. 

    5th Grade Homework:
    9/23:  None!
    6th Grade Homework:
    Newsela article and the last page of lesson 2 vocabulary.
    Reminder - KIM chart with completed sentences is due on Friday!
