Mrs Vicky Eschmann Web Pages

 Welcome to 2017-2018!!

My phone extension is 1111 and my e-mail address is veschmann@stritaharahan.com   

Scholastic book orders: https://orders.scholastic.com/PQFTP 
class code PQFTP 

 

Homeroom: Due to our schedule limitations, if your are sending baked goods for birthdays, etc. (including King Cake), please make sure it is pre-cut or individual servings. Please send napkins as well. This will make serving it go much faster. Also, check with me the day before (via email is fine) so I am aware that it is coming.
 
All CONDUCT BOOKS NEED TO BE SIGNED BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN AND RETURNED TO THE HOMEROOM TEACHER EVERY TUESDAY. THE BOOKS MUST BE SIGNED, EVEN IF A STUDENT DID NOT LOSE CONDUCT POINTS OR MISS A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT.  
 
Tests/Notices this week:  5/7/18 to 5/21/18
 
1) Literature: The link on this page for AR Home Connect allows you to set up an email alert for when your child has taken a test. If you haven't already done this, it helps with keeping tabs on AR tests. PLEASE follow AR procedures which are posted to the left on this page. All students are to stay with in one grade level below where they are unless approved by me (ie: a series book that goes below level, etc.) If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to email me. The codes for the textbooks went home the week of 8/28. These allow for use of the on-line textbook. It is a long download, but it works. We practiced at school in Literature class. The link for my textbook is provided on the left. Novel information is changing and will be posted as a document to the left as well as homework when ready.

 This week: Continuing poetry and folk literature (units 3 and 5). We watched Flocabulary videos related to the terminology. Updated notes given on 3/26 and 3/27 and quizlets available 3/27. Beginning novels 4/23/18. See homework assignments for more information.

All students will have had a conference with me by 3/15 about the importance of AR to their Literature grade. Most have set a goal of getting half of their AR points by 4/13/18 and/or increasing the book (reading) level of their books where they need to be for their grade level. This has been written down and placed in their portfolios in class for each student.

 2) VocabularyUnit 15:  flashcards due 5/4, pages due 5/4, study charts and study games in second week because test is on 5/10

EXAM: Study Guide information will be posted and come home and be posted on 5/14/18

Lice Watch
While lice are most commonly spread by head-to-head contact, they can also be spread through the sharing of caps, hats, and scarves. Watch for signs of lice such as: excessive scratching or small red bumps on your child's scalp and screen your child's head regularly.
