Mrs. Ness' Language Arts Page


Week of 4/16

4th Quarter begins! So, I first want to highlight a few of the goings on for the remainder of the year. First, Smarter Balance Testing for Language Arts takes place the 1st two weeks of May. Please make sure your student gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast. Second, the next couple of weeks before testing we will be engaging in some review activities. Check out our classroom calendar for specifics. Following Smarter Balance testing, we will begin our last in class novel- Bridge to Teribithia. This will take us through most of the remaining year. 

This quarter students are to have an Independent Reading Book of their choice and bring it to class daily. We will have  activities for these books, so they need to be reading at home as well. To grow as a reader, it is recommended for students to read at least 20 minutes a day. Ensuring your child engages in reading is a great way to help them grow. 

We had some great Final Book Club Projects- newscasts (live and videoed), movie posters, and one pager posters. Please stop by and check out the posters as they are hanging on the hallway bulletin board just outside our room, but make sure to check in at the office first.
