    Classroom Management
           ClassDojo is a behavioral management that is used for positive reinforcement for student behavior.  This is a website that parents are able to connect to and are able to receive immediate feedback on their child's behavior.  Students receive points on a daily basis for positive behavior and throughout the year he/she will be able to participate in a class store, sit with a friend in another class during lunch, earn free time on the computer, free time in the classroom, etc.  Students will also lose points for breaking rules, incomplete classwork, and homework.
         Students should read at least 20 minutes each night.  Reading requirements will be assigned at the beginning of each month.  Study guides and notes will be sent home for ELA and Social Studies assessments. 
    Reading:  Students will practice building their stamina in reading silently each week which helps them to improve their comprehension and fluency.  Conferences with students on their individual strategies  helps to improve their reading.  A variety of strategies will be taught to aid in comprehension understanding.  Students will read a variety of genres for their independent reading.  Nonfiction will be a large focal point for students this year.
    Writing:  Writing continues to be utilized across the curriculum.  Some examples are explaining how a math problem was solved, answering questions in detail by using information from an article, newspaper, textbook, resource books, websites, etc.  Students will also have the opportunity to use the computer to publish their writing.
