We have almost made it through our first week!! We have been spending a lot of time getting to know each other and working on procedures. Please know that it takes us a few weeks to get a regular routine established, especially with homework. You will definitely know when that begins on a consistent basis.

Thanks to everyone who has turned in their mountain of paperwork. If you have not done so, please do it as soon as you can. There is lots of valuable information on that paperwork that the school needs to educate and keep your child safe.

Yay for Friday!!! We have made it two weeks into the school year. We are still working hard to learn and practice rules and procedures for our classroom and school. We are also in the process of assessing the students in reading so that we can give them reading instruction that is appropriate for the level they are on. We checked out library books today!! The kids were really excited to show me what books they checked out. Be on the lookout for them. They are allowed to take library books home.

ME BAGS/BOXES were GREAT!!!! I really enjoyed seeing the students share things about themselves. Thanks for your help and support at home with this project!! Have a great weekend.

It is so hard to believe it is May already!! I’m not sure where the time has gone.

With the end of school near, the students are a bit restless to say the least. Please remind your child each day that rules still need to be followed and any work that is assigned needs to be completed.

*This week we will not be using our big reading book. We will be reading Easter/rabbit/egg stories and completing activities with these books.
*We will have a spelling list and spelling homework each night. Check your child’s assignment sheet for each night’s spelling homework. The test will be on Friday.
*We are having an Easter Party on Thursday, April 5 at 2:00pm. We will be having pizza. Our Room Leader will be contacting you if anything else is needed. We are having an egg hunt. If possible please send in 12 plastic eggs with candy that is individually wrapped. Make sure the eggs will stay closed. You may have to tape them shut. I would like all eggs here by Wednesday so I can see how many we have. I chose this day for the egg hunt and party hoping to avoid other classes who may be having an egg hunt also. In the event of bad weather we will just divide the eggs among the students instead of having the actual hunt.
