I can't believe October is already here! This month we will be collecting for our basket benefit. Please be on the look out for notes coming home about this soon!
Wow! We are learning to read so well! Most of the students are reading their bag books nightly, but some are not. Remember, you need to sign their bag book if you listened to them read. Also, many are not AR testing daily. Almost every student should have an AR book in their bag every night. They also should be reading and AR testing on their library books. This gives them the possibility of 2 AR tests a day. We are trying to reach our goals so your child can be a part of the different AR goal celebrations that we will have throughout the year. Please remember that they need to have a comprehension average of 80% in order to make this!
Please make sure you check the planner nightly. Several students are not getting papers removed that were done in class. When the orange folder comes home, that has any graded work in it as well so please sign and unpack the folder. You can send it back the next day. Your child should know to give it to me.
Reading and Spelling Tests- we will have one of each this Friday. Please be sure to review the Reading Test Practice page that comes home on or before Thursday night. (It is a half sheet and tells you some of the tested skills etc.) Please review these weekly as they are returned to you as the following week only gets more challenging! I am trying to teach them to go through the story and circle or underline where they got their answers from! If they label them with the question number then you and I will be able to see easily how they understood the question.
Thank you for all of your support! It is going to be such a wonderful year!
