Welcome to the 2010-2011 school year!
I am excited for a terrific year of Reading and Science!
My class webpage addres is http://science.nsdeagles.org/

Fifth grade is an exciting year. Here at Nespelem we use a middle school model for our intermediate classes. You will attend your Specials first thing in the morning on a rotating schedule. Specials include Culture, Music, P.E. and Computers. Next you will come to my room for Reading and Science. Mr. Erickson will teach you Social Studies, Miss Wells will teach you Math, and Mrs. Edwards will teach you Writing.

Core Class and Homework Expectations
Reading: You need to read 20 minutes a night Monday - Thursday, and 40 minutes for your Weekend homework.

  You may be given short Homework labs to do that include materials that you could find at your house. Any class assignments not turned in on time will be accepted until we finish the Science Unit we are studying.

Social Studies:
  There will be no Homework, but any assignments not turned in by the due date will be given a "C" if turned in a day late, and an "F" (zero points) if turned in two or more days late.

You will not have homework unless you do not finish your assignment in class.  There will be tests on Friday so there should not be any homework for the weekends. If you don't turn in an assignment on time you have until the Chapter is finished to turn the work in. After that you will be unable to make up the work.

You are expected to be productive during this class and stay attentive. Please attend class with lots of paper and pencils.

Please set aside an area for studying at home, and remember to read every night.  You are  allowed to read NEWSPAPERS,  COMIC BOOKS,  VIDEO GAME CHEAT MAGAZINES,  NOVELS, AND  NON-FICTION BOOKS.  I believe that if students will read more and learn more if they are interested in what they are reading. :)

Homework will be recorded in a Reading log.   I will collect  Reading log every morning, if you don't have your Reading Log signed by a parent, you will be required to stay in at Lunch Recess and read for twenty minutes and write a summary for the last ten minutes.

I hope that this information will be helpful to you and your parents.
If you have any questions please call me at 634-4541.
