Welcome to 

Mrs. Beder's Class!

Ha
ppy 2019!

This marking period, students will be working towards completing a literary essay.  We will look closely at short stories, as well as chapter books, to delve deeply into characters, plot, theme and conflict.  From this deeper investigation, we will work on formulating opinions about the text and how to support those opinions, through the format of a literary essay. 

I encourage students to keep up with their independent reading, practicing the same skills we focus on in class, with their books of choice.  This will be an opportunity for them to really express their own ideas about what they're reading.  But, those big ideas must be supported with text evidence!

As always, please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.  Don't forget to regularly check Class Dojo for homework and reminders about upcoming events.

I look forward to spending the next several months, supporting your children as they continue to make academic strides and form lasting friendships.

Best of luck to all in 2019!
