Dear Parents and Guardians,

WELCOME BACK!

I am so very excited for this school year.  Your students will work hard on building on skills they learned last year.  Reading will focus on literature and reading response from many genres.  Writing will focus on building stamina and fluency in the true short story, opinion, information, biography and poetry.  We will work on many concepts in math with a focus on multiplication fluency, to begin the year.  We will likely also review concepts in basic math skills such as addition, subtraction and place value.  

Social studies will see us learning about the regions of California, the Saklan and Miwok and the ways in which their lives were changed upon the arrival of people from other countries.  

We will enjoy music, library, science and Club Fit.  We also have LPIE art and class art that students will participate in.  

Please look at this site for updates on what we have achieved throughout the school year.

If you have any questions, please email me at:

smanzano@lafsd.org

I look forward to working with you and your students throughout the year.  

In gratitude,

Ms. Susan Manzano

Partner Reading Talk

In class students learn to talk about their reading.  Please feel free to use these talking prompts with your child as you read aloud or when they want to share about a book they are reading.

All About Math

Another teacher listed this article about the importance of playing math games - please enjoy the read, it is very enlightening.
