The Scene in 214

September Newsletter

What have we been up to?!

We've been busy here in room 214! Here's a glimpse into a few moments:

PICTURE DAY is OCTOBER 9th!

Announcements

  • Math Menus

Each week, Math Menus (yellow) will go home on Monday. They are due on Friday. Students must answer at least two of the three questions in each column to the best of their ability. All work must be shown for credit!

  • Planners

Planners will be filled out each day to give you a little glimpse of what we're doing each day. Homework or important notes will be highlighted. If it is not highlighted, it is not homework but rather what we worked on that day.

  • Spelling

Each week, a Spelling/Vocabulary list (blue) will go home on Monday. The students work on a Spelling Word Work sheet (purple) AT SCHOOL to practice their words throughout the week. Completion of three of the word work activities is due Friday. On Thursdays, students may take their purple sheet home to return on Friday if they haven't completed three of the activities.

  • Cursive

Cursive is not one of our MN State Standards, and therefore will not be a focus in our classroom this year. If you would like your student to continue to practice cursive, weekly vocabulary and spelling practice at home is a great way to do so!

  • Infinite Campus

Infinite Campus is still in the process of being set up so that grades can be entered.
