I can't believe that this is the next to last newsletter for the year.  Your children are so dear to me.  I am extremely proud of each and every one of them.  We have become readers, mathematicians, scientists, critical thinkers, and much, much more.  As I am sending home your children's journals, please look through them and marvel over their progress.  Thank you so much for being so supportive this year.  No act was too small.  Everyone had a part in OUR success.


Our Week at a Glance

The End is Near - Don't Fear, Just Review a Little Each Night

Study guides are available to help ease anxiety surrounding upcoming EQTS under Forms link.  Reading EQT will be given on Thursday and Math EQT on Friday.  Please make every effort for your child to be present and on time.

Target Skill


Sequence events, identify characters, predict outcomes, and describe illustrations. Use text to answer questions.




Differentiate long and short vowels. Long vowels say their letter names. We will review spelling patterns for each.

Studying pays off!  The purpose of the study guides is to help your child review for the upcoming end of quarter reading and math tests.  Although I believe that the students are ready, these tools should eliminate anxiety concerning these assessments.  Please review a little each evening.  Do not attempt to do the entire study guides at one time.   Go to link and click on Q4 math and reading links.
