  • Welcome back!

    I hope that all of my students and their families had an amazing holiday. Now, it's time to get back to work! We will be reading The Egypt Game during the third nine weeks. I have a link to the PDF version of the book on my website. Please feel free to use that to review with your child what we have covered in class or as a tool for them to catch up when they may be absent. Along with reading the novel, we will work on various reading skills as well as writing. In social studies, we will be learning about ancient Greece. We will also review past information such as hunter-gatherers and the River Valley Civilizations.
