We finished the last of the interviews for classroom jobs today, so I will be making job offers soon!  🙂
I have also had several questions on when we will start the homework projects/journals.  We will hand out the first menu on Friday, Sep. 6 (a week from tomorrow)!

1) READ for 20 minutes, & start choosing books for our PIZZA READING program!  Remember that for chapter books, they should be on your level, never-before-read, and at least 500 pages TOTAL (you could have one 500 p. book, or two 250 p. books, etc.).  Then, bring the book to class for a BOOK TALK!  Click here for a great book talk example on Inkheart.
***If you’re looking for recommendations for books on your level and the genre you want, try Scholastic’s Book Wizard!  It gives excellent recommendations & the genre for each book it lists!***

*Sep. 12: Parent Night for 4th & 5th grade, 5:30-7:00 pm
