Welcome to Grade Five!

Dear New Grade Five Students,
(Former 4/5M students, this post is for my new students but you’re welcome to leave a comment sharing your thoughts about being in my class last year, if you like.)

If you’re reading this post, then you must have received a letter from me recently.  I’m glad you stopped in to look at the blog.  Feel free to look around a little and you’ll get a taste of what’s in store for the coming school year.  You can also leave a comment letting me know that you’ve checked in.  At the top of this page, click the word Comment and it will take you to a screen similar to this:


After writing your comment, be sure to fill in the second box where it says “Name” so that I know who you are; otherwise you’ll be called “Anonymous”.  If you add an email address (not necessary though), the monster avatar will be a unique one just for you!  Press “Post Comment” when you’re done and that’s it!  (All comments need to be approved by me before they’re seen by the public so don’t repost your comment over and over.  I check the blog frequently so it will show it fairly quickly.)

Thanks again for checking in and I’ll see you on Tuesday, September 8th!

    Rebekas’ older sister would be so excited if your going to read “Hackmans Hill” to the class again this coming year for, it caused her to fall in LOVE with reading and she thinks that it would do the same for Rebeka, it’s been a long remembered book for her , one of her favorite memories of elementary school (she is now 17yrs). Please let me know,Paige would love to read it as Rebeka is having it read to her and share in the experience with Rebeka.

      Thanks for checking in, Rebeka’s Mom! You’re the first!

      I was planning on reading Hackman’s Hill again but it will be some time in the winter, usually February/March. Typically it worked well with social studies due to the Egypt connection but the curriculum has since changed. Nevertheless, it’s an exciting story. As a reluctant reader as a kid, I tend to choose read alouds that draw the reader in.

      Looking forward to having Rebeka in class this year!
