HO HO HO!!! Welcome to December! I hope everyone had a great Fall vacation with friends and family. This is the greatest time of the year as we come back from one break and prepare for another.
So many great things to learn and do in the next few weeks before the new year! We are going to be learning about and celebrating many different holidays around the world while learning more about those cultures. We are also wrapping up our studies about long ago and today. Feel free to share stories with your children about things you or your parents did or saw as children that are different from today. They love the stories!
Be sure to keep an eye on the binders for lots of notes and updates coming home about special events. I am also wrapping up conferences and will be touching base soon with a few more of you. Please let me know days and times that work best and I will try my hardest to make the conference convenient for you.
Your children are so excited about checking out library books to read along with their own baggy books. Please be sure that these books are getting read at least 2 times each night so that they are prepared for their AR comprehension tests in the morning. For every 5 points they earn while keeping their comprehension rate above 80%, they get to go down to the media center and get a prize. This is a nice incentive for many of them. If they require help please feel free to read their library books with them for now. Remember that if the nights get busy I would like to see the baggy books be the priority when it comes to reading. Be sure to send them back daily. Thank you so much for helping your child to be responsible and bring their books and homework to school each day.
Please contact me if you have any needs or questions!!!!
