Homework for ELA includes reading a book of your child's choice for at least 30 minutes each. I strongly believe in growing a love for reading! Each night students can practice their spelling pattern, if needed. Also, students should be participating in the work of the home (cooking, cleaning, chores, etc.), playing outside, and eating meals with family members.
Reading Curriculum: EL
Our meaning-based language arts curriculum is called Expeditionary Learning. You can go to the website to learn more about the program:
For foundational skills (phonics, grammar, and vocabulary skills) the district uses Journeys.
Mrs. Johnson teaches language arts, Mrs. Somers teaches math, and Mrs. Bowden teaches science, social studies, and Boost. To learn more about the Eureka Math curriculum or the science and social studies skills, please visit Mrs. Somers' and Mrs. Bowden's websites.
I have been teaching for 12 years. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I was even an elementary school librarian! I love teaching and watching students grow. I look forward to teaching your child and working with your family team!
