Welcome to Mrs. Coffin's Fifth Grade Class!
I am looking forward to a great year and am so excited to meet and get to know my new students! We will hit the ground running, so please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
The following are some important notes to get you through the first few weeks of school.
Please plan for 30-50 minutes of homework each night. Homework may include independent assignments, studying for tests and working on long term projects.
Each day all students will write their homework in their planner. We will stamp or sign each planner and check that all homework is written correctly. Students are required to have a parent sign their planner Monday-Thursday nights. This will also serve as a communication tool between us. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Each student may have a water bottle on their desk or in their cubby during class. Feel free to send one in. Water is the only thing allowed in the water bottles. Students are also allowed to bring in a small, healthy snack. We have snack at 10:15.
Dirty Time: Dig In and Read To Yourself
Beginning 8/20/12 students must have a chapter book with them to read during Dirty Time. This will occur each day and all books must be age appropriate. Books may be brought from home, checked out from the library or my bookshelf. Beginning in September there will be a monthly reading goal which includes genres and number of books for the month.
Please plan on attending the Ice Cream Social/Open House on August 29th, 5:30-7:00 pm.
