A little about me: This is my seventh year teaching, and my fourth year in Cobb County. Previously, I have worked in grades 3-5 in Title 1 Nashville schools. My bachelor's is from the Univ. of Tenn., and my master's is from Trevecca Univ. in Nashville. I have a three-nager named Zoey who turns four in September (maybe by 4 there's an off-switch).
I will be sending weekly updates every week to give some insight into academic learning targets, as well as calendar events. This will also be posted on my blog, www.jcjulian2.weebly.com, along with other resources. Be sure to bookmark it!
Preview of the Week:
This is our first week of academics! Below, please find what your student will be learning this week:
Science - Moon phases, seasons
Math - Place-Value up to Millions, reviewing multiplying by 10s, 100s, 1,000s
Grammar - Subjects and Predicates
Writing - Personal Narratives
Reading - Intro to Poetry
Attached to the email, please find the parent letters for Bloomz. If your previous teachers have used "Class Dojo," Bloomz is very similar. Students still have a personal avatar and collect behavioral points. Bloomz has a few additional resources that I'm looking forward to exploring. *Please note that I do not take away points based on behavior on Bloomz. Bloomz sends reports on behavior to parents, and allows class pictures, so be sure to sign up! It's free!
If you have not yet sent completed forms back to school from the Cobb County folder that your students took home last Wednesday, please do so. Also, if you did not make it to Sneak-a-Peek, please complete the Google Form link "parent information" on my blog.
Students have an incentive to have their agendas initialed each night...however, I will be checking agendas for these initials on Fridays. So, if we missed a night of initials...no worries, I'm not checking until Fridays. I will be writing or stamping positive notes and opportunities in agendas.
On Tuesday, students will go to the STEM Lab during school. Students will be going to STEM lab every other Tuesday.
Thursday is Target's first day with Mrs. Hodges
Thursday is also *Open House* in the evening. We will have two sessions. There is a PTA meeting at 6:00pm. First open house session is from 6:20-6:50 and the second classroom session will be 6:55-7:25.
