Mrs. Dougan's Class
Everything has been packed and moved into our new classroom in Irene Reither Elementary!
Our new classroom is upstairs in room 211. We will enjoy our big south-facing windows,
lots of natural light, and beautiful view of Mt. Baker on clear days!
I will be setting up the classroom over Christmas vacation,
and we will start back to school in the new building on January 6, 2014!
Since we had a snow day on December 20,
our classroom party has been rescheduled for
Monday, January 6, in our new classroom!
Students are invited to bring gifts for the gift exchange
and treats to share.

January Book Project: Science Fiction
We will be checking out science fiction books from our new library
on January 8th. Projects are due Tuesday, January 28th. See the link

New Reading/Writing Curriculum:
Starting in January, we are going to be piloting new reading and writing
curriculum in our classroom. Our current program, Open Court, is going to
be replaced with curriculum in line with the new Common Core State Standards.
I'm really excited to get to use new materials with the students. They will be able
to show you what we are doing and will be able to tell you their learning targets,
describe the skills we are working on, and explain how they know they are
