The Dobbins Daily
Ed. 3 Week of September 19-23, 2016
Be on the look out for NEW Homework/Communication Folders
Students are working on a Moon Journal to record the phases of the moon for the remainder of the month. As a part of their nightly homework, they are to observe the moon at night. We will review this in class every other day and discuss our observations. If for any reason time does not allow for an observation or it is a cloudy night, we will review and correct during class time. The students are very excited about the Moon Phases!
Our reading logs this year will be a little different. They will be created to go along with our new Balanced Literacy Program. Students will begin their first reading log on Monday. Look for more information attached with the reading log.
Students will be rewarded for "Steps" they accomplish this year. One "Step" is 15 minutes of reading!

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE BOOK THAT HAS AN AMAZING CHARACTER IN IT? Well….
Oak Ridge Elementary School is encouraging our students to dress-up like a fiction or non-fiction character they have read or learned about that exhibits one or many of the traits that we will be studying during the 2016-17 school year.
(Responsibility. Respect. Kindness. Courage. Integrity. Self-Discipline. Perseverance).
Please consider helping your child recognize good character by dressing up!
