Looking Ahead...What's to Come? 
In writing this year, we will cover a variety of topics to help our students develop and become stronger writers. We will work on personal narratives, persuasive writing, research-based writing, memoirs, poetry, and interpretive essays.  We will work with students on making our writing exciting with adding details, strong transitions, and proper paragraph format. 
In math this year, we will cover a variety of concepts to help students to continue to build foundational skills! Some of these topics include multiplication, division, story problems, mean, median and range, area and volume, graphing, fractions, decimals, comparing and contrasting.  We will spend time working on critical thinking skills through reasoning and explaining our thoughts and answers. 
This year in reading we will look at growing in our reading through discussion, writing about what we read and small group work.  Some of the topics we will cover include theme, main idea, cause and effect, summarizing our text, point of view, author's purpose to name a view.  Students will meet with a small group for thirty minutes each day.  We encourage students to read at least 30 minutes each night.

We have linked the "How To" here.  Please make sure to preview this.  If your child is ill and not able to participate in our daily synchronous and asynchronous lessons please make sure to call our school attendance line so they can get an excused absence. 
iPad Issues or Tech Issues? 
We will be housing virtual Google Meet office hours for any issues that might arise during the school day and need to be addressed.  Students can log into Google Meets using the code DBHelpDesk and get help from a staff member.
