What are we doing today/this week:
(Webpage is updated daily during my lunch)
Math: we took a pre-test for Unit 1, which is a review of Addition, Subtraction, and Place Value. No homework.
Reading: Finishing up the Terra Tempo graphic novel, which supports our Social Studies curriculum about the Ice Age flood that helped shape Oregon. Scholastic News is due Friday. At home, read 30 minutes daily as homework.
Writing: worked on typing up our Partner Poems--tech problems kept us from printing up all of them, and I'll be working on resolving that. On Monday, we'll take our spelling test in Words Their Way, then get new words to sort.
Science: finish your Science paper about the 1st cooking experiment. Our Solar Energy unit will start up again next week, when we discuss redesigns for a 2nd cooking experiment.
Social Studies: more work labeling maps with topographical features of Oregon's geography.
Due so far (next) Friday: reading log/newsletter...

ATTACHMENTS:Contact me: You can email me at: email@example.com. I'm at school at 6:45 every morning, and for 20 minutes after school each day. (We have staff meetings after school on Tuesdays, and Professional Meetings on Thursday, so those are not available afternoon times to meet).
My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them move forward in their educational advancement. In almost three decades of working in Education, I have taught in Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I taught 16 years in 4th grade, moved up to 5th grade one year, and then moved back to 4th grade.
I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have written and published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is an elementary principal in the North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: 2 in college, and 1 going to Franklin HS.
