What is going on?

Word work will start next week: The words are: after, because, over, have, saw, then, there, and that. If your child forgets to write them in their planner. You can find them on my website under the homework link. Every Friday- we will dictate sentences with the words. We will also be grading on punctuation and capitalization.

Please make sure the kids are reading nightly and doing math facts or numeracy activities. These are the building blocks for later...Please note them in the planner.

Please make sure you get in the routine of checking the "team website." This will inform you of our weekly curriculum.

Book orders are going home today. The class code to order is GRGW9. This is the month to order! I get extra bonus points in September. With the bonus points, I can buy supplies and books for our classroom. I don't deal with cash or checks with the orders. Please check out online. Thanks!
