11/30 – Classroom Update


  • What a fun week!!! We published news briefs;  competed in the Football Championship (a team from our class won!); learned more about Age of Exploration (Marco Polo, Columbus, Disease); Enjoyed our earned marble party (thank you to the Nicholls, Kaufhold, Rondema, & Claytor Families for helping with supplies!)
  • I’ve posted videos & photos on our class Instagram account.


  • Writers have spelling words! I have attached the words to the weekly email (just in case the list did not make it home). Writers are tested on 10 random words from this list.  
  • Readers have a home reading log to track reading. They can fill it out when they read at home OR they can fill it out when they arrive at school in the morning. Readers can access this log through our Google Classroom.
