Erin's Law:
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be adding, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the school year. The curriculum is available in the school office for parents to preview. Erin's law curriculum will be presented to our students during the week of January 22, 2019.

Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

I will order books from Scholastic Book Club each month. The flyers will come home with your children. Our class code is GPNMM.



Curriculum Preview for the Week of February 18th . . . .

ELA - Our 3rd Quarter Unit is Perseverance! Throughout the unit students will consider why it is important to understand the perspective of others.
We will be reading selections about fictional characters and real-life heroes that persevere even when faced with adversity. We will begin the unit by reading a wonderful novel titled "Bud, Not Buddy." The literature skills that we will focus on include character traits, theme, setting, context clues and point of view. This week we will continue working on literature skills, and we will continue reading "Bud, Not Buddy."

**All of my ELA students are reading a biography and completing a poster for their 3rd quarter book projects. The poster was sent home on February 8th. It will be due on or before Friday, March 8th!**

Writing: Narratives - We will relate these stories to our 3rd Quarter unit by writing about a character that perseveres through a difficult challenge.
