Thank you

Dear Toucans and Families,

Thank you so much for thinking of me this holiday season! I loved all of the wonderful gifts! I have enjoyed many cups of coffee from Starbucks and shopping at many of my favorite stores. I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing break with your families. I officially sent my daughter back to college today and am preparing for the new year with my wonderful toucan class! Thanks again for all you do!

Reading Groups

Reading Groups begin this week. Please practice the readers and sight words I send home nightly. FYI....I have begun having parents test sight words on Mondays and Tuesdays. This allows me more time to work with your students during reading groups.

Use Raz-Kids to Help Your Child Read at Home!

The books on the Raz-kids website are meant to be used as a powerful tool for helping your student read each night at home. Your child reads through the levels at their own individual pace. Books can be listened to, or re-read for fluency and comprehension over and over again. Kids love to read the stories and earn prizes to add to their rocket ship. Please use this awesome site as part of your weekly reading homework. Your child may also be using their Raz-kids account at school during literacy centers, or in afterschool groups. Please visit www.raz-kids.com.
