Howdy parents!!! Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. I’m excited to be off to a great start, and it’s only going to get better. I you have any questions please reach me via my blog, or even better by email. Thanks so much! -Johnny
Hey all! The new year has begun and the students and I are enjoying our beautiful new school. I wanted to give you and update about what’s happening the classroom. In the next couple weeks, I will be sending out info to you letting you know about my after school club that I’ll be beginning with my students. After school club will consist of extra homework help, typing skills, working in the school garden (learning to garden, construct raised beds, growing food, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to get some extra help in the class while simultaneously connecting and making stronger friendships with their classmates. I hope to hear from you and I’ll be in touch with you via Tuesday folders and through my website. Thank you!
Welcome to my blog. Here are some tips I would like to share in making sure your student is successful in the classroom.
1) Making sure students stay organized.
2) Making sure your son / daughter gets at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night.
3) Allowing your child or making sure your child reads 30-60 minutes every evening. It’s clear that a students writing ability is indicative to how well they can read.
4) Staying positive.
5) Keeping in contact if there is an issue or any question. I’m always here to ask any questions you may have and to help in any way I can.
I wanted to give some insight to what we’re going to begin soon in classroom 6. Soon, we will begin reading about Lewis and Clark and their adventures. We will be writing in our student portfolios about their journey and the trials and tribulations along the way. Finally, we have just begun a new unit in science having to do with heat and energy. I encourage you to ask your child what they’ve learned so that they can show off some of their gusto so to speak.
Thanks, Mr. D
I wanted to give a little update to room 6. Alas, we’re already at week 4 and the time has been flying. I encourage all parents to reivew your childs work everyday so that you know what we’re learning in class and so that you can also assist your child with their work.
I wanted to give a little update about what will be expected in the next couple weeks. Now that we’re at week 4 in the classroom we will begin to much more writing (narrative /expository) and for some of the upcoming weekends students will be expected to write a narrative paper (beginning/middle/end) about one special day or circumstance that has significance to them. Please assist your child while they do this so that they know that its important to you too!
We will also be getting into some new math areas (decimals /fractions) which should be a ton of fun, but of course I encourage you to reveiw these concepts with your child for mastery. Until the next blog!
Welcome back students!! Please check out my blog and look over the expectations in my classroom. I’m very excited for the new year and getting to know you “the students.” I’ll be seeeing you in class!
