Welcome back! It’s great to back in the swing of things!  The class is adjusting quite well to being down in the “big kids” hallway, too!

I hope to see you on Thursday night at our annual Back to School Night.  It runs from 6:00-7:30.

Feel free to email me with any questions at [email protected] or drop by sometime before/after school.

I look forward to working with your child in the year ahead!

Our theme is “Be the change you wish to wish to see in the world” – Ghandi

We are incorporating the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, as well.

Students will have a Gratitude Journal this year.  We will work on this weekly to make our hearts more thankful.  Stay tuned!


Place Value through Hundred Thousands and we will also delve into decimal values, too!

Social Studies– 

Chapter 1: Land and Regions

Ask about the various land forms found in the United States.  We have talked about the similarities and differences between the Rocky and Appalachian Mountain ranges.  See what your kiddo can recall about age, description, and how they were formed.

Reading- Miss Alaineus

Our story this week is Miss Alaineus.  We will read it on Tuesday and close-read again on Wednesday or Thursday.  It would be helpful for your child to read it once at home, too.  Skills: story plot and character development

Vocabulary for Achievement:  Lesson 1

Spelling:  Ask your child to give you information about how spelling works.  Final test is on Friday and all students have a list in their binder.

Writing: introduce Writer’s Workshop  (Ask about your child’s binder that we put together last week)


Science- We will be using an online program called Science A-Z as the main resource tool during science. This program is a fun and interactive way for students to see the most updated material in the science world. Students will get their own booklets where they can highlight, make notes, and/ or color each unit. We will start this year studying plants.–Mrs. Tieken
