Mrs. Clark's Notes

Want to know more about your learning style? (click here)
 
1. Homeroom:
 
Welcome to Mrs. Clark's Room! 
Our Google Classroom is a great tool for students to use
in and out of class! We will learn and grow together with it
as the year goes on.
  
Mrs. Clark
 
Enjoy your travels and experiences this summer, and remember to READ, READ, READ!
 
 
 
 
2. Language Arts AM and PM:
 
Did you read today?
It is very important that you read for at least 20 minutes at home each day. The more you read, the better your skills will continue to develop over the course of the school year.
 
This is also a great way to build reading stamina and knowledge of vocabulary. 
We have a Scholastic Reading Club code to use online. It is HFPHZ.
 
Guided Reading Groups - Guided Reading groups are flexible and students may move each time we change books, based on individual needs.
 
Guided Reading groups! There will be several guided reading groups within each Language Arts class in addition to some groups that will meet with Mrs. Duvall. Please remember to always do your specific reading assignments to prepare for your group discussions.
 
*We will take a look at Non-fiction
and Informational Narrative books in January!
 
Sirius Group - The Tuskegee Airmen By: John Rousselle (from Reading A-Z)
Vega Group - Code Talkers By: Susan Lennox (from Reading A-Z)
  
Writing! Writing! Writing!
How is your stamina?
Can you complete a writing project in 45 minutes?
 
Word Work  - Word work and vocabulary will be incorporated into Language Arts (LA). We will begin our lists on specific days (Day 1) and test on Day 6 of each cycle week. Students will be given lists that focus on words of the day, academic vocabulary, and commonly misused words. We are excited to work with these words in Language Arts class! Remember to use them to enhance your writing!

*Note: The site will let you do 20 questions per session without creating an account. If you reach your limit, just play again the next day! :-) Have fun!

Welcome to Mrs. Young's Class!

                      I am so excited to be back on Team Honor!
google  
 
              As we move further into the 2016-17 school  year, we will be utilizing Google Classroom more often.  Did you know that your student (and you) can access Google classroom at home? Visit classroom.google.com and have your student log in with their school email (lastnamefirstnamemiddleinitial@dallastownsd.net) and password, and they can show you what we've been up to! Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
Word Work Study Guides will be posted on Google Classroom.  Once your student is logged into my class, click the "ABOUT" tab, and you will see the PDF uploaded. We test on day 6.  Next test is Friday, 11/11.  
 
Visit my Google Classroom "ABOUT" tab for a list of useful websites to visit to practice Language Arts skills.  
 
history  
Next week, we will be beginning our Historical Fiction unit.  I can't wait to link the students to the past! Make sure to ask about the books we are reading at home, and you can join us as we progress on our timeline.
 
 read
As always, please encourage the students to read at home 20 minutes every night! I am hoping to see most of the kids complete our 40 book challenge for the year!
