<About Me>
 Monday March 23, 2020

Hi  c;lass,

  I miss each and every one of you.  I hope you are all healthy and safe at home with your families. 
It is important that you take some time each day to practice your English so that you don't forget all that you have learned. 

You can start  by watching English television and reading for at least 20 minutes each day.  If you have access to a device please get on Lexia and IXL  to do a little review.  You can also get on the duolingo app on your phone or ipad.  Later in the week I will  post some specific activities  to help you review the Language Arts standards that we have already worked on.

Please feel free to e-mail me at genualmz@pwcs.edu. I would love to hear from you! - We could start a pen pal club. Just drop me a line about what you are reading, watching, drawing, or playing.

Your favorite teacher,
Mrs. G.
