Good Thursday everyone!!! Counting down the days until we return to school!! There will be several awesome additions to the classroom this year including more read alouds, more access to grades, and incorporating more technology. Your student will receive 1-4 invitations to join one of Mrs. Rufe's classes. If your child only has me for reading then he or she will receive 1 invitation versus if your student is in my homeroom then your child will most likely receive 3 invitations. I AM SUPER EXCITED FOR OUR NEW SCHEDULE and the opportunity to work with a whole new set of students who are ready to learn!!! Stay tuned for more information and if your child has the opportunity to access their google email account please let them and have them accept the invitation to join Mrs. Rufe's google classroom. I will be posting lots more important information that will be more specific to your child's assigned class.KEEP HAVING A GREAT SUMMER and KEEP READING AT LEAST 30 MINUTES A DAY!!This school year will be doing great things in reading, social studies/history, and science! I am so excited to be adding the science subject to my schedule. I am so very excited to institute the CAFE reading menu and the DAILY 4 in reading classes. Our goals in reading this year will be based in: comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expanding vocabulary. Please stay tuned to see additional information about our 2015-2016 school year!
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body! Be sure to work out your mind at least 30 minutes a day!!This is an example of an analogy. We will learn about these in reading class this year along with so so many other literary devices and vocabulary!
