Google Classroom

Students in my class will use Google Classroom Daily. This is where assignments will be posted, students can ask me questions, and students can go to to get help from their peers.

Reading: We dive deeply into the following core novels:

Homework will be assigned nightly (except Fridays). Students should expect to read for thirty minutes per night, complete math homework related to the day's lesson (except for the days before and of an assessment), frequently complete science homework, and complete social studies homework related to Studies Weekly. Longterm projects will also be assigned throughout the year.

I use Class Dojo as a positive behavior management system for my students and a way to communicate with parents. It's a fun way for students to earn points for good behavior. There is also an app you can download for Android and iOS. For more information, click here.
