Global Read Aloud BFG


This week we will begin reading BFG by Roald Dahl. This is a part of the Global Read Aloud project Last year, Weatherstone Elementary joined  Global Read Aloud in an effort to have students engage in a book with others throughout the world. Over the next 6 weeks we will be reading the BFG and incorporating activities not only in our classrooms but during Specials as well. Both Readers Theatre and Art class will explore elements of the story with our students. We will be tweeting and connecting with students at other schools and the Write About site also has an opportunity for students to share their thoughts. You will see   and #GRABFG on twitte to help connect with others.

Interims Go Home


Interims and mClass results will be sent home with all students Tuesday, September 7th, 2016. Please sign the interim and return it to school with your child.

mClass: a letter is being sent home explaining what reading level your child is on. A quick visual: if you child’s reading level is shown in the color red they are significantly below grade level. Yellow indicated they are almost on grade level. A green color code indicates grade level proficiency at this time and blue represents above grade level proficiency. The goal this quarter is to be on level M (23-24). Many students still need support with their book and a bag prompts as they learn to think through responses.
