This week we'll be starting our Literacy rotations. This will help me to work with smaller groups of students to better meet their needs. We'll also be working with our next word work unit. Be on the lookout for new spelling words in the planner as well as on the website!
We'll be moving forward with our next Health Unit!
In Math we're wrapping up our unit on multiplication and division facts. Ask your child to sing you a multiplication song! If you'd like an extra copy of the songs to help your child learn them at home, let me know! :)
Reminder about AR...keep reading and taking quizzes at school!
Book Order is due Wednesday.
If you have any questions about anything, please just ask!
As August winds up we'll spend this week talking about fire safety. We will have our first fire drill this week and it's important to review the procedures.
This week we also hope to have a dentist come in and talk to us about the importance of brushing!
In Literacy we're going over the important strategies that good readers use in order to be successful. Read to Self will be a focus this week. On Tuesday we will be taking the STAR test for Reading.
We'll get Health kicked off this week and go over our first unit of the year. We'll talk about the different body systems.
I hope by now you've seen your child's spelling words in their planners. We'll take a test on Thursday. Help them study every night! If you need strategies, let me know! The first week was a great week and we're really starting to get moving now! Just a reminder, a snack is optional as we have a LONG morning.
Ear buds or headphones are necessary. If you are unable to provide a pair, let me know and we can look into some options.
Remember, no school on Friday this week or Monday (Labor Day) next week!
Have a great week!
Welcome back! I'm super excited to kick off the 2017-2018 school year! Please check out the various tabs on the left to better help you find the information you are looking for. Here are a couple of notes for this week:
1. Make sure your child is prepared for PE with the appropriate footwear.
2. Water bottles are encouraged as long as they aren't a distraction, but we do have a water fountain inside our classroom as well.
3. We will have a snack time. If your child would like a snack during that time it must come from home.
4. Any papers that went home at Open House that needed to be filled out, must be returned.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at or give me a call at the school.
Thanks and have a great first week!
