After a super long winter, it is wonderful to hope to see spring early.  I'm not sure if that will happen, but I certainly hope so!  

Kindergarteners and first graders are working on blending sounds into words and writing cvc words.  They have grown so much. 

Second grade is working on comprehension strategies.  They are doing some work that requires a lot of deep thinking.  Be sure and ask your student about it.

Third graders are working on improving their fluency.  We do timed fluency passages daily.

My fifth grade guilded reading group is working so hard.  Our emphasis is on informational text and comprehension strategies.

Sixth graders are working on writing about their famous person for the wax museum project.  They are hard at work.


I enjoy the students so much. Please reach out to me if you have questions or concerns.

It's hard to believe  that is second semester!  Students continue to challenge themselves in fluency and comprehension.  I love seeing their score grow.  We had lots of great worl on our winter testing.  I will sharing some of this with you at conferences.  I look forward to talking to you!!

     It's so hard to believe that we are starting December!  Time has been going very quickly, but all of my groups have been working very hard.  We just finished 2 very good virtual learning days. I was very impressed with my students.  All of my students had their devices and were able to follow along and participate.   Thank you to  the families that helped their student to be successful.


Have a wonderful Holiday Season!!
