Week of 09/17-09/21: During this week the students will continue to explore themes of identity in two specific texts: The Where I'm From poem by Georgia Ella Lyons and by reading Becoming Naomi Leon a novel. The novel study will last into the end of October. Social studies will start with a study of ancient civilization. Students will also get a little more homework, and we'll begin taking more in-class formative assessments. I will notify you. We'll also begin our school's Second Step social-emotional learning program that Wednesday.

Other: I am hoping that most kids can get access to a student Gmail account. With that they will be able to learn digital citizenship and work on a few BIG projects this year. One includes Project 36863.

Other: Students will also begin blogging using the application Kidblog. I will teach them some nuances of this.
