Thanks for coming!
It's going to be a great year!
The amount of time spent reading and the amount read are

important. For example, a student who reads 21 minutes per day outside of school reads almost 2 million

words per year. A student who reads less than a minute per day outside of school reads only 8,000 to

21,000 words per year (Texas Reading Initiative, 2002).
You should be coming to school each day with the supplies to you need to be successful:
- Binder
-Reader's Response Notebook
- Independent Reading Book
-Writers' Notebook
- Sharpened Pencils**
**Pencil Sharpener is open from 8:15-8:40


*LA: Read 30 minutes
-complete sticky notes
-write in your Reader's notebook
Writing: Varies based on classwork
Spelling: worksheet/activity, weekly-ish quiz
Social Studies: Varies based on classwork

Leaving the Room
A BIG part of your job as a student is to be present during class. When you leave the room during class, you are missing valuable information (and Ms. Carroll's hilarious jokes).
If it is not an emergency, please do not ask to leave during whole class instruction, during your small group, during transitions from one place in the building to another.

Procedures for Leaving:
1. Get permission
2. Sign out in the Sign-Out Binder
3. Move your lunch number
5. When you return, sign back in and move your number.

Your Job As Students
1. Follow our Class Constitution
2. Attend School/class
3. Be prepared
4. Ask Questions

Other things to Know
Class Website: assignments, announcements, class news
Remind 101: text message reminders

This is my first year at Avon Grove Intermediate, but I have spent the last year teaching sixth grade at Oen J. Roberts in Pottstown. Prior to that I taught 5th grade in Philadelphia, 7th grade Language Arts in the Haverford School District and 4th grade in the Penn-Delco School District. I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Elementary Education and have since completed a Masters in Instructional Technology from Wilkes University. In addition, I have received certifications in Middle School English, Social Studies and Mathematics. I also enjoy spending time reading, traveling, baking cupcakes, and shoe shopping.

My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in different ways. I have already begun planning some wonderful lessons and fun activities for the year. I believe in hands-on experiences and learning creatively. I am really looking forward to a fun–filled and educational year!
