• Our desire this year is for our scholars to develop a true love for reading!!
  • Scholars will be working towards completing a reading challenge this year! More information on this exciting opportunity can be found below.
  •  It is important that your child reads at home nightly to improve their fluency as well as their reading comprehension. Scholars need to be reading 20-30 minutes at home each night as well as completing a reading response three days a week.


  • Scholars will be participating in Writing Workshop daily. Scholars will focus on writing prompts to create narrative or expository compositions.  Scholars are expected to accurately revise and edit authentic texts, as well as use grade level appropriate conventions (spelling, punctuation, and grammar).  Writing will take place in all content areas (including Math, Science and Social Studies).  

  • Scholars will take a spelling test every two weeks. To practice spelling at home, scholars can choose activities from their spelling menu or log on to for practice games.
