  • THE BASICS: LEFT-SIDE/RIGHT-SIDEAn open notebook can be seen as a two page spread. For our purposes, a two-page spread is one lesson.

    LEFT IS FOR LEARNINGThe left side is for teacher input notes, foldables articles, questionsRIGHT IS FOR REFLECTION/WRITINGThe right side is for student output graphic organizers, drawings, interpretive writing, students notes of examples any creative way for students to demonstrate their understanding of the content

  • GRAMMARModeling through mini-lessons

    Daily grammar review as needed

    Application in every day writing

  • MATHEMATICSThe overall goal within the curricular area of mathematics is for students to have not just a basic knowledge of each concept that they learn, but for them to apply it with a certain depth of knowledge. Due to this, students will be required to solve more detailed questions and problems.

If you see it highlighted in yellow, then its important for you to know and/or homework. If the item is not highlighted then they may have completed the work or the permission slip may have already been turned in. You will find all information in the yellow folderYellow is the only color I use important information from me will also be sent home on yellow paper.I ask that you frequently check in with your child and take a peek in their agenda, I am not having kids get it signed each night, but if certain friends become frequent flyers on my missing work list, we will need to make different arrangements
