Mrs. Roy's Class
Right now we are doing MOST of the work that is being sent home together as a class. The reality is that most of us can't read the math problems on our own, so I'm reading them out loud and then we are working through them together. I will try to start releasing some of the support as we move into the next few weeks. Right now, more than the rest of the year, I would REALLY love it if you would go over some of the missed problems on their classwork in math. If they are struggling, encourage them to keep at it and don't give up. I promise it will get easier with more practice!
If you ever feel like you want to do more practice with them at home, just log on to the Pearson website (see the technology log on page I gave you at curriculum night for their password). We are on the first unit, understanding addition. You can look into each of the lessons and you can find reteaching opportunities and more practice! Let me know if you ever need help finding more practice!
Every month I will send home a book order form from Scholastic. They offer some quality books for pretty inexpensive prices and it’s a great opportunity to increase your child’s excitement for reading. There is no obligation, but if you would like to purchase books from the catalog, you may return the form on the back page of each booklet you are ordering from along with a CHECK (no cash please, you can write one check for multiple catalogs) made out to Scholastic, or you may order online. If you log on to Scholastic.com you can create an online parent account. It will ask you for a classroom code. Our code is HFQBD. I will usually submit the orders one week after I send the catalogs home. Just as an added bonus, the more books we purchase the more “points” our classroom gets. These “points” allow us to purchase new books for our classroom library, which is always exciting! J If you have any questions, please let me know!
