     Welcome!  The first marking period is spent becoming familiar with the rituals and routines of the Reader's/Writer's Workshop as well as with forming our Book Clubs.  As we progress through the year, the students will be working more independently on their own and with their Book Clubs to think deeply about what they are reading and to write meaningfully about their thoughts in their notebook.  Children should be reading 20-30 minutes daily at home and keeping track of their progress using the reading logs provided.

     Room 5 will start the first marking period with social studies.  In chapter 1, they will be exploring our nation's geographical features as well as regions, climate and vegetation, and how people can influence the environment.  Notes are taken in class, definitions are kept in the notebook, and study guides are offered to help prepare for the test.  When mid-marking period approaches, the Room 5 students will switch to Science while the Room 6 students start social studies.
