Welcome to Tate Woods Elementary School


October 1, 2015
Dear Tate Woods Families,
October has arrived! The students at Tate Woods continue to work hard everyday to be the very best readers, writers and mathematicians they can be!
​When I visit classrooms, I'm pleased to see READERS...
  • talking to each other about their thinking after reading something
  • using specific strategies to sound out words
  • reading A themselves and to partners
  • with a bag of books at their own level
  • working with the teachers to set goals for their reading
  • challenging themselves to read types of books that might NOT be their favorite
  • talking about characters​
  • reading long and strong (stamina)
​When I visit classrooms, I'm proud to see WRITERS...
  • writing A LOT
  • studying what great authors do and using that in their own writing
  • ​sketching before they write
  • reading what they wrote and talking about it with peers
  • adding to their writing to make it stronger draft after draft
  • sharing ideas for stories
When I visit classrooms, I see MATHEMATICIANS...
  • using manipulatives to support their understanding
  • reading about math
  • writing about math
  • explaining their thinking and reasoning
  • able to orally defend their thinking when questioned
  • counting on from any number by ones, twos, fives and tens
  • growing a deeper and deeper understanding of our base ten system
We truly have the smartest and best kids!  They work very hard each day doing all of these things.  We ask that you support your children by reading with them at home, encouraging them to keep working hard, and practicing math with IXL or flashcards each night. Together we are making a difference in your child's learning.
Fall parties will take place on October 30th.  This is an exciting day for our students and families.  Please watch for information coming home in backpacks with details regarding costumes, parties and the parade.
