ANNOUNCEMENTS
                                                           
 Welcome Back! 
 Happy 2019!!  
 
 I'm very excited to be back from a long and restful break!  It's hard to believe we are already beginning our third nine weeks. I'm looking forward to teaching this semester and watching my students learn and grow.  This nine weeks, we will be continuing informative writing.  We will be adding text structures to help us master nonfiction text and informative writing.  We are back to our weekly vocabulary study with tests on Fridays.  Please make sure to designate some study time at home.  
Our next novel is "The Watson's Go To Birmingham - 1963.  We will begin this novel in a couple of weeks.   
 
The most important thing you can do as a parent to help further your child's ELA education is to encourage reading at home.  In 5th grade, a minimum of 20 min. per night is suggested.  
 
As always, please contact me if you ever need anything. Enjoy the new year ahead!
