Mrs. Melissa Spell « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

January 26-30, 2015

Please review homework each night with your student. My job is to teach your child to be a thinker. This involves asking questions to deepen their understanding of a topic. Please help me practice this at home by encouraging thinking on their homework. For example, in math, ask them to draw out each problem to help explain.

 Important Reminders:

Below is a link to the Sunshine State Young Reader Awards for you to view. The students have already enjoyed seeing this presentation in class with Mrs. Lyons.

Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know.

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. 

Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
