Welcome to Mrs. Benson's Basic Skills Webpage




The students continue to work hard in both Language Arts and Math. I have been supporting many of the students as they write their informative writing piece. We continue to work hard on improving our decoding, fluency and comprehension as we read. Please continue making sure your child reads at home on a daily basis. Discuss the books they are reading to make them think about what they read and also ideas beyond the text. 


In math, we're working hard on estimating by tens and hundreds, dividing, multiplying, name collection boxes, and multi-step number stories. Continue the hard work with the homework that comes home. 


Please reach out to me at any time with questions or concerns. My email is


I am currently working part-time and support students at both MacFarland and Clara Barton.
