Our reading series is called Good Habits, Great Readers.  We will be continuing to work with leveled readers (just right for you books) for our independent reading and guided reading groups.  All the children  use a reading seat sack to store their independent reading books and journals.  Seat sacks are bags that hang on each child's chair and keeps their book choices readily available. 

If you are looking for website to help you find books for your child, here is a suggestion you may want to check out:

Our first science unit this year is Insects.  We will be observing Monarch caterpillars grow and pupate.  We were really fortunate today and were able to actually watch a caterpillar change from the "J" stage into a chrysalis.   After we finish with Monarchs, the next insect the children will work with is meal worms. 


Students will be using a website called MobyMax.  MobyMax can be found at  At this website, students can select from 10 different academic subjects such as math, science, vocabulary and literature. Each child has  their own unique login and password, and can login from any computer with an internet access.  The children earn game time by completing academic tasks.
