Mrs. Embanato's Class

Welcome to Mrs. Embanato's Webpage!

I teach the Terrific Trio: English, Reading, and Spelling.

We will be using the Journeys Reading Textbook series, and we will also include several novel/trade book studies.  

THIS IS AN APPLICATION CLASS.  Most Reading tests will be OPEN BOOK.

Your child will not have study guides for Reading.  We will be doing a lot of Cold Reads this year as well, these will challenge your child and prepare them for state testing.

 Students will only have study guides for vocabulary words.  English notes including Grammar Rules will be sent home for test purposes.

We will also be learning CURSIVE HANDWRITING throughout the year.

English, Reading, and Spelling will all be under the umbrella of ELA. It will be listed as one grade on the report card each nine weeks.

I am looking forward to a great year of growth and success for your child.

 Spelling tests will be given every other week.  Reading/Grammar tests will be given at the end of each lesson rotation. Writing will be a big part of our curriculum this year. The students will be writing essays on assigned topics, comparing 2 texts, writing opinion essays with support, and also given a chance to do creative writing.  

We use laptops in our classroom on an almost daily basis.  We use education games including Spelling City, Kahoot, and MobyMax. The students will also do keyboarding and AR on the laptops.

Your child will have an ELA Notebook, which they will use for notes, study guides, spelling words, etc. They need to bring this home each night for review and studying.

AR:  Your child should have an AR book at all times.  Please set aside 20 minutes a night, three nights a week for your child to read. A weekly AR goal will be set and your child will need to reach that goal in order to stay on pace for reaching their 9 week goal.
