We have a new reading series for the 2007-2008 school year. Our new
reading series is Houghton Mifflin Reading for Indiana. Our reading
series is comprised of six themes. All of these themes will address
the Indiana Academic Standards.
We will also be reading a variety of chapter books this year. Again,
all chapter books will reinforce the Indiana Academic Standards for
Language Arts will go hand in hand with our reading series.
In Language Arts the students will be working on many different
writing pieces. They will be required to write narrative stories,
informative pieces, persuasive writings, poems, and many other types
of writings. Technology will be implemented in the writing process.
Students will also be required to implement correct grammar usage in
their writing pieces. We will be covering sentences, nouns, verbs,
adjectives, pronouns, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and
along with our reading stories for the week.
Each week the students will be given 20
words which cover a variety of different spelling patterns. I will also be
adding five words from the vocabulary lists weekly. Bonus words will also be
given. Bonus words are used for extra credit in spelling. In other words, bonus
words can only help your grade, never hurt your grade!
not allow your child to look at these pages unsupervised. The school
provides a screening program to make sure students are protected from
inappropriate websites, but your home computer may or may not have
this same protection. I will be checking the links often, but
sometimes websites change or are hijacked. Always supervise your child
when they are using the Internet. Again, I will be checking links
regularly, but if you should discover any problems, please let me know
