We have an exciting week ahead with our Winter Program (see newsletter for details) and a visit from Mr. Ribaldo (a police officer) to read to students and discuss stranger awareness. Students filled the class party jar, and we will have a special party day Wednesday. Students can wear PJ's and bring a stuffed animal and a flashlight for flashlight reading. Students may bring a book of their choice or use one from my library. We also have NWEA testing this week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child gets plenty of sleep and a healthy breakfast. Last week, we completed math, reading, and spelling summative testing. This week we will complete our grammar summative test. Students have been enjoying their daily fun flash activity as well as Fun Day Fridays. Please remember to ensure your student completes the spelling tic-tac-toe activities by Friday. Please practice having your child read their weekly word mat and phonics sheet to you each night. These homework assignments (which are not collected) will help your student prepare for the spelling/high frequency word test each Thursday and the phonics test on Friday. The reading comprehension and phonics tests are always on Friday. Dark green take-home folders should be coming home every night. Tuesday News Day Folders will continue to come home on Tuesdays with graded materials. Please sign the insert in the folder and feel free to leave comments for your child or for me. The folders are to be returned on Wednesday. Please continue to read 15-20 minutes a night with your child to strengthen reading/phonics skills (the weekly reading story can count towards this time). Reading textbooks will be coming home each night Monday through Thursday, so you can read the story each night with your child. You can also access the reading textbook (and math workbook/homework pages as well) via the ThinkCentral site in case your child forgets to bring it home. Don't forget we have some amazing resources that your child can use at home, such as RazKids and XtraMath. We are a peanut-free classroom, so please continue to send peanut-free foods for snack. See the downloads section for the current newsletter. Have a great week!
Weekly Assignments: Practice spelling words and read sight word mat and phonics sheet each day. Read for 15-20 minutes each night (at least 5 days a week). Use addition and subtraction flashcards or the XtraMath website or app regularly. Students will have the opportunity to retake summative assessments receiving D and F letter grades. Parents may request one reassessment per subject, per quarter for A, B, or C grades.
