Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Maki

I am the 6th grade reading teacher.  This is my tenth year teaching, but my first year here at Desert Thunder.  

Homework Information:
Reading packets are given each Monday.  For 3rd quarter, the first page is vocabulary.  The students will be making and studying flashcards.  Parent signatures are required to confirm that students are creating and studying the words.  The subsequent pages usually involve reading comprehension.  Each day the students are expected to do the next assignment.  We will be checking homework on a daily basis and submitting the complete, graded packet the following Monday.  This is when the vocabulary quiz will be given, as well.

Supplies:
It's that time of year when many students have depleted their school supplies. Right now many students have run out of lined paper, and so our classroom supply has been depleted as well.  Many students are in need of a new notebook for reading class, as well.  In addition to restocking  your child's individual supplies, classroom donations are always greatly needed and appreciated.  
Current classroom supply needs:
lined paper
plain white copy paper
pencils
Thank you for supporting your child and his/her education.
