Jennifer Plaia

Welcome to

Ms. Plaia's Class


Hi! My name is Ms. Plaia and I am going to be your teacher for this year. My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique and each child learns in a different way. I develop multi-sensory lesson plans to meet the needs of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners. 
I am looking forward to a fun-filled and educational year!

** Please check your child's assignment book and folder daily for important assignments and notices.


Each week your child will have a reading log and an activity in his/her purple reading folder. Your child will be required to read for a minimum of 20 minutes a night. The folder will be turned in every Friday with a completed reading log. Your child will begin to gain confidence as a reader and develop reading fluency by reading a variety of different ways, but always be sure to alternate between them. Young readers become better readers by listening to good readers read and by reading themselves. 


*Spelling Activities*

Each Monday your child will receive a new spelling list that is attached in his/her spelling journal. The following is a menu of spelling activities that students can complete to help them practice the spelling words at home. For homework your child must complete an activity on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The test will be on Fridays . Each week you must complete at least 4 different activities.
