Delightful December!!


Posted by tgolden | Posted in Uncategorised | Posted on 2nd December 2018

Hello Parents,

I am absolutely thrilled that it is December.  I can’t believe that 2018 will be over soon.  This month, our class will be focusing on the following topics:

1) Writing- The students will write personal narratives related to the winter holidays, celebrations, and this joyous time of year.

2) Reading- The students will read fiction and nonfiction texts about “Christmas Around the World.”

3) Math- The students will identify fractions and their corresponding pictures, add and subtract fractions with common denominators, and compare fractions containing like denominators.

4) Social Studies- The students will learn about economic concepts such as goods and services, needs versus wants, opportunity cost, and supply and demand.

This week, we will be having a couple of visitors:

1) Kennesaw Coffee Company- December 6th

2) Ken’s Krew- December 7th

At Pitner, this week, the Holiday Shop will be open and Dinner with Santa will be on December 7th.

Thank you.

October News


Posted by tgolden | Posted in Uncategorised | Posted on 1st October 2018

Hello Parents!

I want to welcome everyone back to school from Fall Break. I hope that everyone had an exciting, fun, and relaxing vacation! Ms. Nicole and I missed all of our boys very much, and we are both eager to work with them on critical academic skills. October happens to be one of my favorite months of the year.  The weather is cool and there are so many exciting activities and festivals happening during this month. I am thrilled to mention that I was able to connect with 4 local business owners who will be visiting our classroom this month. Each business owner will be discussing important aspects of their job and may even bring in a special treat for the children to enjoy. Please continue to review Dojo for updates regarding our classroom visitors!

This month we are focusing on the following academic concepts:

  1. Written Expression- The students will be writing research essays about a specific country. The students will be going through the entire research process from gathering information about their specific country to creating a polished finalized report.

2. Reading-The students will use the information from the text to help them answer wh questions pertaining to both fiction and nonfiction reading selections on their instructional level.

3. Phonics- The students will critically analyze words to determine if the long vowel sound or the short vowel sound is produced.

4. Mathematics- The students will learn the basic concepts associated with multiplication by having access to manipulatives and being presented with arrays.

5.  Social Studies- The students will learn about the different levels of government at the National, State, and Local Level. They will identify key officials, important locations, and the authority of each member of government at these levels.

Some important highlights for this month:

October 6th- 1st Annual Chili Cookoff

October 11th- Early Release Day

October 15th- October 19th – Conference Week

October 31st- Halloween and Read-A-Thon


Finally, Ms. Nicole and I would like to mention that we are both incredibly appreciative of your support. We are not only fortunate to have the best students in the entire school,  but we are both extremely lucky to have such great parents to work with.  Thank you.
