Ms. Gould's New Email and Classroom Updates.

Today, I finally received a district email account.  Yay!  This afternoon, I sent a class email out to using contact information that was provided at the beginning of the year.  If you did not receive an email and would like to be added to the class email list, please email me using the contact information below:

Lauren Gould
Long-Term Substitute

Also, if you have any questions or concerns in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to getting to know you and the students better over the month of February!

As far as classroom news, I've provided a copy of the updates from the email below:

Reading:  This week, we will finish up our unit on Interpreting Theme, and next week, we will move onto a unit on Historical Fiction.  We've been reading the book The False Prince by Jennifer Nielson, and last Thursday, we had the opportunity to Skype with her.  Today in class, we read the scene she told us was her favorite!  I am also busy conferencing with your students and getting to know them as readers.  I love to read, so it's been really fun to hear all about the books they are reading.  We just set February reading goals, so if you are looking to check-in with their reading, that's something you could ask them about.

Writing:  We are still working on our project "The Lens of History."  For more details, see the class blog post by clicking here.  

Math:  Student just took the Chapter 6 Assessment today.  Tomorrow, we will be taking the Chapter 7 Pre-Test and splitting up into our new math groups sometime this week.

Science:  We are working on finishing our Assessment for the Land Forms Unit.  Next week, we will begin our science unit on Mixtures.

Social Studies:  Students are hard at work finishing up their Social Studies projects.  For the original details posted on the blog, click here.  The presentations will begin Thursday and continue through early next week. As a reminder, student presentations should be 5-8 minutes long, and need to include a student-created artifact, such as a map, model, movie or poster.  I'm looking forward to the presentations!

Thank you so much for your time and support!
