 Ms. V's ELA Class 
Homeroom 404
 

Welcome to our class!  I am extremely excited to begin the 2017/2018 school year.  As a third year teacher here at Franklin Towne, I am happy to begin our journey together and reaching our common goal of creating life long learners.  

 

We are excited to start our new ELA curriculum Journey's. Students will be focusing their studies on Reading, Vocabulary, and Written language such as Grammar and different styles of writing pieces. 

 

Students have access to their ELA materials on ThinkCentral. ThinkCentral can be found on the school website. Students can play games, complete assignments, and revisit material taught that day from their home computer or their smart phones/tablets.  This is a great way to access useful tools to assist in your child's learning.

 

I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you! Let's get this year started!!

 

Ms. V

2. Gym day is on Friday. Students must come dressed in their gym uniform.
3. This year, we are introducing students to Learning Logs.  These are great tools that students can use to assess their own knowledge.  It provides us with feedback on their learning while promoting independence and ownership.   Learning logs will be reviewed after a lesson and before a test.  Ultimately, our goal in fourth grade is for logs to be used as study guides before a test.  Tests count for 65% of your child's total grade in ELA.  Please know that tests count for a large portion of your child's grade.  It is very important to study for all tests.
