Extra Credit Book Review for Fourth & Fifth Grade:

Any student who has completed and handed in their required monthly book report will be eligible to complete a book review to obtain extra credit. The extra credit book review must be on a separate book from the required reading, and should be a new book that they have not already read. The complete guidelines can be found under the "Useful Links" section of this website. Any students who hand in a book review will be placed in a monthly drawing to win a prize!

4th Grade Reading/ELA:

This week we will continue our poetry unit using the novel Love That Dog by Sharon Creech. We will read and analyze the poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost. The students will write poetry using the elements of imagery, rhyme, and vivid words and phrases to help compliment their poetry.

In ELA the students will have a unit test on nouns. Topics covered will be singular, plural, and possessive nouns. As well as nouns used as subject complements and direct objects. There will be extra help Tuesday (1/16) morning at  7:30 a.m.

5th Grade Reading/ELA:

In Reading, the students will continue our novel study on Esperanza Rising. The students will continue to analyze the main characters of the novel by making inferences based on their readings. We will also continue to explore the historical and geographical setting of the novel.

In ELA the students will have an adverb unit test on Thursday, January 18th.
