Welcome to our classroom page!  I am Mrs. C.  I teach ELA and history.  I have been teaching for 16 years here at Medill. 

Reading:  Students are given an AR contract for their independent reading every 9-weeks.  They choose the books; I choose the genre to ensure that they are exposed to a wide range of reading.

Spelling-Vocabulary:  Our spelling focuses on high level nonfiction words and words from classic literature.  We focus on Latin and Greek stems; therefore, 4th and 5th graders can use these stems to decode the meanings of the challenging multi-syllabic words that will be present in their reading.  Tests are every two weeks.  Students need to know the meanings of the words as well as the stems. 

Classdojo:  Classdojo is our main means of online communication.  Please contact me if you need access or do not have regular computer access.  I will be happy to make other arrangements.
