Mrs. Bihm'

Advanced Academics

Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a wonderful academic break, and...

Remembered to read, read, and read some more!


 FOURTH Graders:

I hope you all enjoyed reading Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. This story can really make you think about life in a different way.



I hope you all loved reading The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Did you find it filled with puns, idioms and great imagery that worked your imagination in such a fun way? I certainly hope so.


I am so anxious for us to be together and begin this 2017-2018 school year!

DON'T FORGET to ALWAYS read, read, and read.

Remember how important it is to annotate well.
