Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ziedonis

In October, we will complete our first reading unit; we will focus on strategies to solve tricky words. Next, we will begin Unit 2, Growing Word Solving Muscles. In writing, we will continue on with our small moments, true stories about ourselves where we had a big feeling. Your children will learn to include bold beginnings, five senses, action words, dialogue, and thoughts into their writing. Finally, we will revise our stories and share with the class. In math we will complete Unit 1 and begin Unit 2, adding 3 digits numbers with and without regrouping.

Raz Kids and Epic (I will introduce Epic this week) are up and running. Feel free to supplement your child's reading with these programs. Soon, our online math tool Freckle will be ready, this will provide additional math practice. Please check out my website,under the math tab, for enrichment activities and much more.

We continue to use Seesaw for our morning work as a way to remain familiar with the tools the children learned last year.


Please send in 3 masks per day. Many of the masks are breaking, or becoming wet, and some of the children do not have extra masks to swap out.

Please send your child to school with a coat/jacket. It is getting cooler out and we are going outside for recess or walks.
