Welcome to 2nd grade!

9-2-14
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to our 2nd grade class! I’m very excited about this year and want you to know that it is an honor to share your students with you for the next 10 months.

I will be sending an email to you every week outlining the week’s events and spelling words. Below you will find a link to my blog site where you can also see the homework for the week. The homework and spelling list will also be placed in your child’s agenda each week as well as any study guides for upcoming assessments. I will also mark your child’s behavior for each day with a color coded marker there. The “key” to these colors will be placed in your student’s binder as well as a homework menu for spelling words. Please take care of these agendas as we cannot replace them if they become lost or destroyed.

There will be no spelling words this week and the only homework is for the adults. That is to fill out all those forms in the manila envelope.

I want to thank you in advance for your support and for entrusting your children to me this year. I know it will be a good one!!!

Welcome to Fifth Grade!

I am very excited to begin another new year at Oakland!  We will be very busy this first week, getting to know each other, learning our Whole Brain Teaching (WBT) five rules, learning WBT’s teach/okay, and becoming familiar with the level one scoreboard.  We will also begin learning about the Daily Five (which for us will be modified to the Daily Four).  This literacy instructional program allows for students to work independently on their reading and writing, to work with a partner in reading, and to work on word work alone and in pairs. Key words we will explore and practice together are independence, practice, urgency, choice, and stamina.  This week we will implement Read to Self and Writing Work.  The goal here is to foster independent learners and strong literacy reading and writing skills.  The Daily Four will also allow the special education teacher, classroom paraprofessional, and me to work with individuals, pairs, and groups of no more than three students at a time on targeted individual skills and enrichment.  Once we have the Daily Four in place in language arts, we will being using it in math also.

In math, we will begin the first nine weeks with SOL 5.1 decimals and rounding.  During our science time, we will begin with scientific investigation (SOL 5.1), learn about sound (SOL 5.2) and light (SOL 5.3), while revisiting the fourth grade skills of Force, Motion, and Energy (SOL 4.2), and Electricity and Magnetism (SOL 4.3).  In social studies we will begin with maps, longitude and latitude, and geography. Mrs. Griffin will be pushing in with us on Thursdays during science.

All students will begin by choosing classroom books and magazines to read during Read to Self time. We will be building our independent reading stamina to fifteen minutes and ultimately thirty minutes.  Our goal is to work in each of the four stations (Read to Self, Writing, Read to Someone and Word Work) for thirty minutes each.

Grab your thinking cap before you leave the house Tuesday morning, and get ready for a year filled with expanding your horizons!
