Classroom News

  • The need for individual supplies continues. If you didn't check with your child last month about needing new crayons or scissors, please do so! Thank you!
  • We are in need of tissues! There are 3 boxes left from your donations from earlier this year. Please consider sending in another box. Thank you in advance for this wonderful, germ-inhibiting donation!
  • Please remember about the "When I Was Little" assignment. I will send home written instructions with the children on Monday.
  • We will have weekly multiplication fluency tests. The children are allowed one and half minutes to answer 25 questions. This past Friday was the 2s. This coming Friday will be the 3s, the next week will be the 4s, etc. I will assign it weekly on the board and send it home on my Class Dojo and Remind announcements. (If you haven't joined one or the other or both, you should!!! I would love to share with you how to connect with me this way!)
