Welcome to our classroom webpage!


Going forward, you will find information about what we will be learning, as well as our routines and schedules.

Curriculum preview for the week of September 18, 2017

Math: We are continuing our first module in the Eureka math program. Please be patient as we begin this new program, as it is a new way of teaching and learning. Based upon our research and piloting of Eureka, we do believe that in the long run, this will be a positive change that will result in better understanding of their math skills. I have sent home paperwork that includes login information that will help with further understanding of the program, as well as homework assistance.

This week will continue working with addition, subtraction and applying these skills to word problems.

ELA: We are continuing our first unit "New Beginnings.' We will be primarily focusing on immigration and looking back to the time of Ellis Island and Angel Island, the people that came through these centers and why they chose to come to the U.S.A. Our first novel study will be "The Orphan of Ellis Island." We will be using this and other texts to focus on main ideas and details as well as identifying first hand and second hand texts in nonfiction.
Our nonfiction text for this quarter is If Your Name Was Changed...

Writing: Our first writing unit will focus on Informational Writing. We will begin by learning how to take notes, paraphrasing, as well as looking at quality resources.
Our topic will cover Natural Disasters, with students each focusing on particular type of disaster such as tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, and many others.

Social Studies: We will begin the year with map skills review. We will look at the different parts of a map as well as how to read a variety of maps.
