Mr Becke Does Your Homework

Letter to Teacher 

Welcome back!  I am Ms Becker and this is my 20th year here at AUGS.  I live in Antioch with my two children, Brant 12 and Addison 9 and our Bassett Hound Zoey.  I love to read and spend time with my kids.  I am excited to get started with new and helpful activities and lessons in language arts this year.  We will be working on many strategies in reading and writing and preparing for high school next year.  Our new curriculum, Expeditionary Learning, will start us off reading Inside Out and Back Again  moving on to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Unbroken, and The Omnivore's Dilemma.

  • Weekly agendas are found on the homework page
  • Handouts and assignments for each novel can be found on their individual pages

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year.

lbecker@antioch34.com or 838-8330

 

 Check Power School and the teacher's webpages frequently.  I will have most handouts available on line, so if you are absent or lost your sheet check my webpage.

Thank you for visiting Mr. Becker's Class Webpage. Please refer to this webpage to check your homework assignments that are due, upcoming projects, online textbook access, and other important information relevant to our class!
Parents,
We are so excited to begin using Microsoft OneNote in our ELA classes! OneNote allows students to access and edit their ELA work from their online ELA binder. Today, your child will be bringing home their log in information on colored paper. Please keep this copy AT HOME for your use. You can also access this information on my teacher page found on the District website. If you have any additional questions, please let me know!
Dear Parents/Guardians,

Zearn Class Code: AH8W9Y
Newsela Class Code ZGR3EK
To access OneNote from home:
Go to office.com
log in is 21first initial last name@ fsd157c,org
For example 21sbecker@fsd157c.org
Password is your 500number(just like at school)
Invitation Reminder: We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party. Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent. Thank you for your cooperation.
