Welcome to my class website! I am so happy you stopped by! This is going to be an extraordinary year full of fun and new experiences!! Please check here for updates, classroom news, and important information. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have!

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 presenting, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year. Our presentations will occur in November and January.

MUSIC
Our class will have music on "I" days. Band and orchestra students must have their instruments at school on those days.

S.T.E.M.
What is it? It is an acronym that refers to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Learning is collaborative and project-based. Our students will be given the opportunity to attend this class on a weekly basis with Mrs. Jozaitis as their instructor.

READING AT HOME
Is reading part of your family's daily routine?

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.

*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency, expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.

*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

E.L.A.
*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals and a weekly reading log. Can you exceed the expectation???
