Holiday Centers: Seasons greetings! Our class will be having Holiday Centers on Thursday, December 15th in the classroom 10:15-11:15. A note has been sent home about how you can help! We are looking for a few parent volunteers who are able to come in and help with the centers, as well as, a few supplies to help make our centers spectacular! Please fill out the bottom portion of the form I sent home and return it by December 7th if you can help out in any way. Thanks in advance!
Hat Day: To celebrate learning about the letter "H", your students are invited to wear a hat to school on Friday, December 9th. We will be doing several literacy and math activities that incorporate our hats! How fun!
Jobs Poster Project: Your students are learning about jobs, currency, and needs and wants. To wrap up our unit, your students will be presenting their jobs poster project in front of their classmates on Friday, December 9th. I have sent home a detailed note about the project. If you need further explanation or have any questions about the project, please feel free to contact me.
Scholastic Book Fair: Our school will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair December 5th-9th at the Primary Center. We will be previewing the book fair as a class and then sending home your child's "wishlist" that they will fill out when we visit. If you wish for your child to make a purchase at the book fair, please send money in a baggy or envelope labeled with your child's name and the words "book fair" so I will know what it is for. Your child will get to visit the book fair during that day and make his/her purchase. If you would like to volunteer at the book fair and earn PI time, please contact our Media Specialist, Karen Bowersox.
AR: Your boys and girls are doing a great job AR testing. Please remember your child should be testing weekly on books brought home from the library. We have classroom volunteers to help with testing on Mondays and Fridays, so those are great days to have a test ready for your child to take! Your child's goal is 15 pts. and 80 % comprehension by May.
Homework: Homework goes home every Monday and is due back on Friday. Please be sure to return the homework in the homework folder. Please review homework with your child and initial every homework page. Also, please use pencil, unless otherwise noted.
Our classroom would love the following donations: treasure box items (new or used) small toys for our treasure box and peanut free snacks for our snack cabinet. Thanks so much!
I appreciate each and everyone of you! Together, we will work together to make this is successful and wonderful school year. Again, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. You can write a note in the agenda planner, send an email, or phone me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "student" in the subject line. My rule of thumb is, if you have not heard back from me by the end of the day, I probably did not get your message or it went to my spam folder. Good communication is very important to me. Thanks so much!
