Welcome!!!  This is sure to be an exciting year!

One area I am very passionate about is READING!  Throughout the year, we will read books as a class.  Our first book will be, "Ramona Quimby, Age 8", by Beverly Cleary. Once we complete this book, each student will complete a diorama recreating a scene from the book.  I will send home more information later!

Our next book selection will be "Fudge", by Judy Blume.  The students will complete a tri-fold poster recreating a scene from this book.

In addition to our in-class reading, the students will also be expected to reach their Accelerated Reading (AR) goals.  With the help of our librarian and me, the students will choose a book within their reading level and take a short comprehension quiz upon completion of each book.  More information on the AR program will be in your child's JVE binder.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Happy Reading!!
