Just a few updates…

We have had a great two days! I am so excited to see how eager and motivated my class is this year! I am looking forward to a great year.


Please be aware that one of the students in my class has a severe peanut and tree nut allergy. Please avoid sending in any snacks that contain these allergens.


We will begin our reading program next week, part of the homework for each week will be to go to the Spelling City website, find our spelling words for the week and complete the activities that go along with them. We did this together in class today and the students loved it, a few of them had used it before. One nice feature of this site is that you can print the words on handwriting paper with the words modeled for you. I have noticed that proper letter formation and spacing is an issue with a few students, so this is a great way to work on those skills. On Monday, I will send a letter home with the web address and directions for finding our word list. Please check off on your child's planner when they have done the activities. Remember, they can do them any day before Friday and only have to do it once. They can go to the site more often if they chooseJ

Students will also be required to read for 20 minutes each night (M-Th). Please check out the document entitled "Why Can't I skip My Twenty Minutes of Reading Tonight" posted under Shared Documents on the left side of my webpageJ This can be any grade appropriate book of their choice.

Don't forget that next Thursday is the Ice Cream Social/ Open House. Hope to see you thenJ
