Important Dates

Today: 11/24/17

Stay up to date!

The best way to know what is happening in class is to read my website! I update it weekly to keep you informed of important dates, projects, field trips, etc.

On Fridays your child will come home with a Friday Folder. This blue Rancho Romero folder will contain all their work from the week for your review. Please keep the papers at home and send the folder back to school empty on Monday.

If you need to send me a note, you may do so over email or send a note in with your child.

Curriculum Corner



Reading- We finished reading Charlotte's Web. We continue to discuss inferencing, comprehension strategies and author’s purpose.  Flat Stanley letters went home this week for homework.   


Writing- We continue to focus on our narrative writing. Students will write narratives focusing on small moments. We are learning to tell the story bit by bit, and incorporate a beginning in which the readers know who the characters are and what the setting is.  We will learn to use transition words and phrases and use dialogue.  As we finish our drafts, the children will be typing their final drafts on the chromebooks using Google Classroom.


Spelling/Language Arts- Unit on the (ur) sound. Studying verbs.


Math- Module 3....Multiplication


Science-  The students go to Science Lab every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m.


Social Studies- We continue to do GROW together in class, focusing on how to use the Atlas correctly and write complete sentences.  We have learned all about the Prehistoric San Ramon Valley.


Music - We started music with Ms. Lawrence, and students are learning to play the recorder. They are learning to read notes using fun learning games on the computer.  


Computers- Mr. Graham is teaching students makerspace.


Classroom & School Happenings



Friday Folders- Each Friday your child’s red folder will be sent home containing important notices and corrected work from the previous week.  Parents and students should review the work and keep the papers to use for concept review, especially in math.  The envelopes should be returned to school the following Monday. We use the Workshop model in Reading and Writing therefore you won’t see a lot of work coming home each week in your child’s folder. Students have notebooks for each subject they are using in class for their work.


Soul Shoppe- This year, Rancho Romero has adopted a behavior/life skills program called Soul Shoppe. Their mission is to support kids by giving them conflict resolution tools that allow them to support each other as allies. Monthly presentations will be given to each grade level, and 3rd-5th grade students have the opportunity to be leaders and facilitate a “Peace Path” at recess.


Mindfulness- We continue to practice Mindfulness daily from 1:05-1:15. We are practicing our breathing techniques and learning how to use mindfulness to be calm.
