Mrs. Coward's Corner

Welcome to Mrs. Coward's Corner!

This should be an exciting year for your student. In Language Arts,we will explore building rich vocabulary, utilizing important writing conventions, and becoming excellent writers in several genres. In U. S. History, we will strive to capture and understand relevant events and the people whom were instrumental in designing our beautiful country. One of the most challenging aspects of this year, will be the ways we will be able to integrate these two subjects to create deeper understanding of both.

Please be sure to subscribe to my page as well as all of the 5th grade teachers' pages to catch any updates!

May Activities

NEHS will be wrapping up the year pretty quickly!  With all of the school activities planned for May, we will try to squeeze in only two meetings this month.  Please see the May calendar for those dates.  
For Teacher Appreciation Week, NEHS students will treat teachers and staff to chips, dips, and fruit on Thursday, May 11. Students will find a sign-up sheet outside of my classroom.  Please note, there is no regular meeting that day. Students may drop off their treats to my classroom or the library before school on May 11.
Thanks for looking,

Twenty six members of the Anahuac chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society participated in Read Across America by reading to students in kindergarten, first, and second grade. Members also worked stations for the kindergarten celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday!  Pictured above, 5th grade,r Jake Previte read to students in Mrs. Hill's 1st grade classroom.

Vocabulary Building!

It is very important to expose your student to many types of text. Kids love to read fiction and  non-fiction material.  Try something new at your home.  Encourage your children by being good readers yourself.  Set that good example, and create interest in reading traditional books as well as internet based materials.  Bring home magazines, comic books, wildlife and fishing guides, gardening books, and newspapers. Share your favorite stories and anecdotes with your family, and don't forget to discuss all of the new words you discover!
