Welcome parents and guardians!
I hope that you and your children are as excited as I am to start the new school year!
This year we will be working through the Common Core, and exploring several new avenues to become better readers and writers.
Students will be working on developing several primary skills: reading closely for textual details, making evidence-based claims, researching to deepen understanding, and building evidence-based claims. This year we will be using a variety of literary genres to read, write, think about and discuss a variety of themes.
