We have finished workshop 7. Students need to turn in any missing work. We will be working on our progress test and xSkills test the remainder of this week and into next. After that we will be starting SOL review. A way you can help is to have your child read to you for just a few minutes each day and ask them questions about what was read. This helps fluency as well as comprehension. Remember there are extra credit reading logs that can be turned in each week. You can make corrections to work that you are not happy with. Have a wonderful Wednesday. McC
I cannot believe that it is March 11th already. Where has the year gone? Our reading SOL will be here before we know it. We are continuing with reading out of our textbook. Students need to come with an SSR book daily to LA. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email me.
I wanted to touch base and let you know that we still continue to work on writing complete sentences. We started a reading unit dealing with extreme adventures. The students are finishing up the 2nd reading. ROWs/ECRL are still due each Friday. On another note, I have been sending grade reports home with the students to give to you, so you can see how they are performing in class. I plan to mail the next ones home because I feel they are not getting to you.

Good Morning Students and Parents,
We have kicked off 3rd quarter already. I cannot believe it. We are finishing up our simple sentence unit. They have been given a 1B and 2B to completed by Friday. ROW 16 was given out last Friday and also due on Friday. Audio files are attached. Have a great week.
January 17, 2017-Welcome back for a short week. I wanted to inform you that grade print outs were given today in class. Students can raise their grade by doing alternate assignments if they come to me and ask for them. ALL WORK NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED BY JANUARY 27th.
Audio files have also been added for the upcoming workshop and ROW's.

Just a note to let you know that if classwork becomes homework if it does not get finished in class. There are notes on the website for Sentence Writing if you were absent. 2 ROW's were given today...13 is due Friday and 14 is due next THURSDAY.
Happy New Year! 01.07.2017
This is the 3rd time I have gone in only to see the update was not posted! I hope you all are rested. As I mentioned below, we did start our writing unit. There will be worksheets and notes in the files and documents in a folder called Sentence Writing. Students can make corrections if they do not like their grade.
Good Evening Students,
Just a quick note to let you know that there will NOT be a ROW given over break. Remember that if you have any work that is late, get it turned in. Make sure you read over break. Take your time on your benchmark and IB assessment. When we return, we will be starting our unit on writing. Have a wonderful break, be safe, be good, and be nice.
Happy December! Students did NOT get the ROW Friday. They will get it on Monday. Any corrections need to be turned in ASAP. We have finished Raymond's Run and will be finishing Bombardment and The Winner. There will be a progress test next week and an IB assessment during the short week before break. There will not be an assignment given the short week other than to read for the extra credit reading log.
Good Evening-I wanted to let you know there was not an ROW assigned on Friday since we will not be in school next Friday to turn it in. We have started the second half of Workshop II. We will start reading "Raymond's Run" on Monday and continue into Tuesday. We will not finish it, so we will continue it when we return from the break. Please encourage your child to make corrections to their ROW's. Again, I am in D lunch if anyone needs assistance with work.
Good Evening and Happy 2nd Quarter-
It's been awhile, but there has not been that many days of instruction between being gone for the Nature Bridge Field Trip and all of the other days off. I wanted to let you know we are continuing with "Do we care too much about winning?" segment. ROW 9 was given at the beginning of the month and due Friday. I would recommend taking advantage of the extra credit reading log that is given each week. I have been giving up my lunch to sit in with the students during D lunch if they need help or assistance with any of their assignments. A progress test was given and the students had 2 days to work on it. If they did not finish, it needed to be taken home. It is open book. I will need them back by Friday. Just a reminder that students can make corrections to homework. They have a week to make the corrections before an alternate assignment is given.
Good Afternoon Parents and Students, I want to let you know that ROW 7 was given out on Friday. ROW 6 was collected, and it will be returned on Monday, so students can make corrections if it was originally turned in. Remember, if you miss the deadline to fix your ROW, there is an alternate assignment. We are finishing up the Workshop with some strategy skills, an open book progress test that covers 3 stories, and the benchmark.
Oct. 7- Dear Parents and Students,
ROW 6 is being handed out today due next Friday. ROW 5 is being collected and returned on Monday, so the students can make corrections before next Friday. Any Alternate Packets for ROW 2-4 are due ASAP. We have library today and will be finishing up our story on "Storm in the Night".
Have a great weekend!
Dear Parents and Students, Just a reminder that corrections to ROW 2 alternate assignment are due Monday. Corrections to ROW 3 are due today, however they can get an alternate assignment to replace ROW 3 if they want. ROW 4 is due today. ROW 5 is being given out today and due next week. Have a great weekend.

Dear Parents, Yesterday, grade print outs were given, so the students could turn in any missing work or corrections. They were also given a grade print out last week, so they could plan ahead to turn work in. All corrections need to be turned in by Wed. to count for Interims. ROW 2 replacement sheet was given yesterday for those who want to replace their ROW 2 grade. ROW 3 corrections are due Friday as well as ROW 4. ROW 5 was given last week.

Dear Students and Parent,
This week the ROW 3 was given and due Friday. All corrections to ROW 2 need to be done by this Friday because we are going over it in class after we return from the library. SSR will be starting next week, so it is important that your child finds a book of interest. A grade print out was given to the students today. If there is an NHI, they still have until Friday to turn it in. Have a great evening.

Dear Parents and Students,
Thank you so much for attending Back to School Night. ROW 3 is being given out today. My goal is have them out on Fridays just for some extra time, but that might not always be the case. Remember to document in the passage to support the answer. We are continuing to read about Natural Disasters next week. We will finish up the workshop hopefully by next Friday. Next Friday is also library day.

Dear Parents and Students,
Thank you so much for your understanding as we transition from SchoolFusion to School Messenger. There has been a learning curve, but I plan to keep you better informed from here on out. I will post when the homework is due on the calendar. I will put copies of documents in the Files and Documents section.
Each week there week there will be a Reading of the Week (ROW) due each Friday. Students must document their answer by highlighting or providing a written explanation to document their answer. The answer will be considered incorrect if the documentation is missing.
Students can make corrections to work that has been submitted complete.
