Week of March 27th
*Spirit Day-There will be a dress down day on Friday, March 31st. All proceeds will go to the flood victims in Peru.
*Box Tops Shamrocks-A box top sheet was sent home last week. If all of the boxes are filled in with box tops by March 31st, your child will receive a free homework pass good for one day of spelling homework.
*Reading Scavenger Hunt-This will take place at the Huntington Library between March 13th-March 31st. Students that hand in their sheet stamped by a librarian will receive a N.U.T pass (after March 31st).
*Save the Date
Special Person Day will be on Tuesday, April 4th from 8:45am-10:00am for our grade. Please start thinking about which family member will be coming to the classroom. If you have more than one child, please plan accordingly because each child needs their own person. A letter will be sent home in the upcoming weeks.
*Reader Response-For the month of March, the reader response must be completed on a non-fiction book. This will reinforce what the students are learning about non-fiction texts in the classroom. I recommend going to the library to take out books that your child can read independently.
*Extra Supplies-If you are able to provide our class with some extra supplies, it would be appreciated. We are in need of the following: crayons, glue sticks, and pencils.
Thank you! :)
*Math-As your child moves on to module 4, it is important for their fact fluency to be strong. I encourage using addition and subtraction flash cards at home to help improve fact fluency.
*Assignments-Please encourage your child to write their first and last name on all of their work. We are trying to get them into this habit in the classroom as well. Thank you.
*Secret Readers-If you have not signed up and still want to, please contact the class moms. Please do not tell your child you are coming to the class. It is a secret :).
*Please visit the photo gallery on my school web page. I upload class pictures throughout the month.
*Please check your child's folders daily. The homework folder is for all assignments and the school folder is for notes, graded work and tests.
*Reading Logs-Please make sure to complete the log. Your child must read every night. Incomplete or late logs will affect their homework grade.
*Reader Response-Please work with your child and read over their writing. Check for correct capitalization, spelling and punctuation. It is important that your child corrects their mistakes. Incomplete or late responses will affect their homework grade.
*Graded Assignments/Tests-These will be returned in your child's school folder and can be kept at home.
*Recess Toys-Please discuss your expectations for the things your child brings in to play with at recess. We are not responsible for lost/broken cards, toys, etc.
