 Classroom Calendar
Once a month I will send home a newsletter to give you an overview of what we will be doing in class. I will send home a paper copy at the end of the first week of the new month.
All assignments are posted on the assignment board in our class and the students are to copy the information into their planners. 
Reading: The students will have reading for 20 minutes per night-they may read chapter books,newspapers, magazines, etc.
the students should be filling out their reading logs nightly. They will also be reading 20 minutes per day in class,

FUN FACT: If you read for 20 minutes a day you will read  a total of 3600 minutes in  a school year and have read 1,800,000 words!!
