What a busy week last week was! I hope this week finds every feeling well! This week, we’ll be learning the following:
Math – Students will continue to work on strategies for multi-digit multiplication with an emphasis on integrating word problems. Check out these videos!
Classroom Caboodle Multiplication Video
Reading – Students will work on the standard below. Students may view the video to help understand what is expected of them.
Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text.
Writing – Students will learn about the format and style of opinion pieces.
Social Studies – Students will learn about need for the writing of the U.S. Constitution, the first ten amendments (the Bills of Rights) and the structure of the U.S. Government (the branches of government).
Don’t forget that there are only a few days left to donate to your child’s run/walk at the Tiger Trot. Please remember to register and have your child ask friends and family! Go to funrun.com to get setup or check your progress!
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! As we jump into the second quarter, beginning on Thursday, October 11th, the Teasley Attendance Team wants to reward those students who come to school on time every day. Students who have perfect attendance at the end of the second 9 weeks, ending on Friday, December 21st, will receive a free dress down day, a surprise treat, and 1 entry into the end of the year drawing for a BRAND NEW BIKE! Furthermore, those students who have perfect attendance for the entire school year will have the opportunity to participate in a end of year celebration during the last week of school as well as FOUR entries into the drawing for the bike! Thank you so much for your support with getting your student to school on time every day.
Conference week is quickly approaching (October 15th – 19th)! Please sign up for a time where you may meet with us to receive your child’s first quarter report card and discuss his/her progress. We ask that you ensure that your time is adhered to so that we will be able to start and finish on time. This will allow you time to ask any questions or voice concerns. Please sign up for one day and time slot. Times go quickly, so please sign up as soon as you are able.
When signing up, please type your child’s FIRST NAME in the comments section. If you have specific items that you would like to discuss, please email either myself or Ms. Harris before your conference time.
*****Please note that school dismisses 2 hours earlier each day of this conference week. Students are welcome to visit with parents/guardians during the conference.
My name is Ms. Tope’ Harris and I am so excited to join the Teasley Tigers. It is my hope that this will be an awesome and fantastic school year! I am highly qualified in Special Education General Curriculum (P-12) and all core content subjects (P-8). I am English to Speakers of Other Languages and Gifted endorsed and I also have an Educational Leadership Certification.
This is my 12th year in education. I began my educational journey at Narvie J. Harris Theme School, teaching Kindergarten for a year. I then moved on to Briar Vista Elementary School where I taught Montessori Pre-K/Kindergarten for 4 years. Next I transitioned to Eldridge L. Miller Elementary School, where I taught Moderate Intellectually Disabled students for 2 years. I ended my career in DeKalb County School District at Avondale Elementary where I taught Interrelated Special Education for 3 years and served as the Special Education Lead Teacher for 1 year.
It is my absolute pleasure to be your child’s teacher! I look forward to preparing your child for fifth grade and making this school year as successful as possible! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You may call the school; send an email, or a note. I know that this year will be a great school year for you and your child!
