This week starts first full week of our Weekly Reading Log. Please make sure your kiddo has their book and log every day for a sticker and in case they are speedy with work or earn free time they can work on it in class.
Please make sure their agenda is filled out and signed also!!!!! It's important in case they have math, reading or another subject for homework, as well as notes home or other class teachers that may assign homework or need to correspond with you.
AGENDA needs to be SIGNED every night too!!! I really appreciate all your help. TEAM work is the DREAMWORK and together we can, together we will - SUCCEED.
What an awesome thing to see, smiling faces, happy kiddos, and it was well deserved. These kids make me smile too! Have a great weekend!
Here they are enjoying their Campsite and movie, they read an excerpt from the novel "Because of Winn Dixie" and their assessment was about comparing and contrasting a passage about the movie version, so what better way to end a great week than by seeing what they read about.
READ FOR 30 MINUTES! Complete the Weekly Reading Homework for Thursday night.
Make sure you sign the agenda and the reading log.
IF your child did not finish math 16-1 they should finish that too. Morning work that is not finished will be there also. (only if they did not finish)
Camp Fire FRIDAY! Students are earning a fun Friday activity. We will be "camping out " in the classroom after our Unit 1 Week 1 test on Because of Winn Dixie.
Students are allowed to bring in flash lights, wear jammies, and bring slippers. Every child must wear sneakers or shoes to school. We will have a special snack and do our work on the floor. We will also be watching the movie "Because of Winn Dixie".
Read for 30 minutes and write a reading response. Reading response choices are on the last page of the reading log. Please make sure you sign and fill out the Reading Log on the 2nd page. Look for these three pages in your kiddo's homework folder every week. Hand it in on Friday, or daily.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO FILL OUT THE AGENDA TOO...
PARENTS! As a reward for amazing behavior and for being great kiddos, on Friday we will be having Camp Fire Friday! We will have a tent, flashlights, they can wear their jammies, and a popcorn snack.
Please make sure they have their favorite book!
Thanks so much for coming to back to school night.
