October Focus


Classroom Volunteer Opportunities
  • Cut, Color, Copy: I have resources and lesson materials for the following week ready every Friday. These need to be copied and filed by subject. I occasionally have foldable note-taking resources to be cut or colored to save classroom prep time. 
  • Literature Centers: On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students rotate through literature centers to focus on spelling, vocabulary, latin, reading comprehension and fluency skills respectively. Many of these centers integrate art or music, and need additional supervision. If you are available to supervise a center, please email Mrs. Edgel with the date of the Tuesday or Thursday that you would like to volunteer. Our literature circles class period is between 11:30 and 12:10.
