I assume that your summer went by just as quickly for you as it did for me. As I prepare for my twenty-fifth year at Mabel-Canton I continue to learn new curriculum, strategies, and technology to connect with today’s learner.
My class will be using Google Docs, a web-based data storage service, offered by Google. It allows users to create and edit documents online. Your child has a G-mail account that will be used quite a bit in 5th grade. Google Docs will allow your child to work on a writing project at school and continue to work on the assignment from home.
I will be using Daily 5 to structure my reading block and CAFÉ (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand vocabulary) to guide my reading assessment. I use reading logs referred to as M-C Minutes, and reading journals, referred to as Paw Prints.
Thank you in advance for all your support from home. I truly appreciate ALL you do.
