Happy New Year! I hope you are all rejuvenated and excited for the upcoming year. I explained to the students today that, just like we do every quarter, we are starting fresh this year with brand new instructional units. This quarter we’ll dive into multiplication and division of fractions and decimal fractions, begin our study of the American Revolution, begin our new read aloud: Chains, and start a new genre of writing (opinion). Likewise, each student’s Dojo account has been reset to allow a clean slate for behavior and homework for this quarter. In other news, I have sent home a double-sided letter with each student to go over some important news. Please review it and feel free to ask any clarifying questions. Have a great week!
