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!
