Welcome to our classroom webpage!

A message from the library...

Parents,
I am looking for volunteers in the Library to assist with re-shelving/organizing books. Additionally, during 'Check In' times, volunteers may be asked to help some students in finding where their books should be placed on the shelves.

Any amount of time would be greatly appreciated!

If interested, parents/guardians can contact me at ncanny@fsd157c.org.

Thank you!
Nicole Canny, Librarian

Throughout the year, I would like to share an overview of what to expect at the beginning of each week. I will be updating this website weekly to share what we will be doing in class, as well as upcoming due dates and tests. If at any point in the year you have any questions, ideas or concerns please do not hesitate to e-mail or call me!

Curriculum Overview Week of: October 15th, 2018

Math: We will continue Module 3 this week with lessons 5-9. In this module, we will be working with multi-digit multiplication and division. We will be practicing multiplication with several different strategies this week.

ELA: Our first quarter unit is a great way to kick off the year as we explore "New Beginnings". The students have begun reading our second novel this quarter, The Orphan of Ellis Island. We will be using this novel to practice several fiction-based skills such as summarizing, identifying theme and also using context clues to identify the meaning of unknown words.

Writing Workshop: Students will continue their Informational writing essay on natural disasters.

Social Studies: We will continue our study of the Northeast region of the United States this week.

Science: We will be discussing rock layers and erosion.
