I have entered the grades that I have so far for all subjects and students. Don't panic if you don't see a score. This is because I had NOT received the work yet and will update after I grade it. Also, some subjects didn't contain a lot of assignments as others, we are getting there and I will post again in about a week.
If you are having problems accessing your grades - you can enter your email address and Engrade will help you. The user name and password is the same as the one you made up last year, therefore I do not know it.

Another fantastic week was had by the 3rd and 4th graders. We are getting the schedule down and falling nicely into our routine. Our first Religion and Spelling Test are under our belts. We did AWESOME!!!! I am so proud of each of them for the work they have accomplished thus far. Keep up the great work!
Have a GREAT weekend!

Test Reminder

Just reminding you that there is a RELIGION TEST tomorrow. Just study your notes from class (in your notebook) or you can look under the NOTES tab. We practiced the test today with our response pads and hopefully have some idea of what we may need to focus on when studying.

More Info.

2 new things:
1. Calendar - If you click on the event for a day a description box will pop up giving you more information about that event.

2. Spelling - we have a new spelling series this year and I am trying something new. Each student was given a pretest last Friday and based on this pretest I have assigned spelling words that are individual to each student. So if you call a friend for the spelling words, they may not have ALL of the words that were assigned to you. Also, not all of the words assigned came directly from the textbook, some came from the teacher resources. So the students have been instructed NOT to lose their list. I suggested that they write their words in their planners every Monday night for practice and safe keeping.

All Spelling words cover the same spelling skill for that week. For example, 4th graders are focusing on short vowels this week so all word list have short vowel words on it.

AS always, if you have any questions please contact me.


Just a reminder to bring gym clothes and your library book!

Welcome Back!

I know that the first day of school is just around the corner. I hope everyone is as excited and eager as I am to begin our year.
I have been working on many fun Smart Board activities in Math, Language Arts, and Science. We will also be working in a new Spelling book this year.
I hope you are ready to write those stories that you love to share and are ready to dig into some exciting Science labs in the first few weeks.
As always, we will sing and dance and learn so much together! I can't wait to see each of you, catch up with what you have been up to, and see how you have grown. See you soon!!!
