-Next week we will start Habit #2, (Start with the end in mind). We will read about a bear who made a list then worked towards achieving his goals through a lemonade stand. Talk to your child about their goals and ask them how they can reach them. Next week we will make an art project with our arms and write down our goals on them. We will also study the little read hen and how she had to plan her bread. If you have any versions of The Little Red Hen, please send them in next week! Thanks!!!
-Please sign up to receive SSF’s weekly flyers. Go to: http://sbsd.schoolwires.net/Page/1127 to sign up.
-Each Friday, 10 books or 2 chapter books in a clear, plastic bag will go home:
*Remember, these books should be a bit easy. I want to build their confidence and learn to LOVE reading.
*If they don't bring back the bag on Friday, new books won't be chosen and sent home. If they loose a book, it costs $10.00 to replace.
-Your child's school pictures went home this week. You can order your pictures by mail, online or return your order to school.
-We started using the iPads!!! This week we went over rules, how to carry them, take a picture of themselves and save it on the screensaver, close apps, used Education and played cool math games. I'm VERY excited!!!
-If you have any gently used books that are no longer getting read, send them in! I'll find a good home for ANY book either in our class library or a classroom in need. Thanks!
-A Scholastic flyer went home today and the due date to order books is September 22nd. This is a great way to get age appropriate books at an amazing price while adding points to our own classroom to buy more books. I sent ONE flyer home but when you log on you have access to hundreds of books any many more flyers.
I still need ONE more parent to read each Monday morning. If you're interested please let me know. Thanks!
I send home individual pictures each month and hang them up in the room. I always send them to COSTCO and would LOVE Costco gift cards to develop these pictures. If you could help out, please send in gift cards.....Thanks!

On the iPad, download the app and our school code is: rdew/solanasfe
You need to find my name then your child's name. Their code is the 4 digit code they always use. Their levels rolled over from last year however, I may reset levels back to first grade. I find there can be holes and forgotten standards due to the summer break.
