A Note From Mrs. Waz

It was nice to see you last night at Back To School Night! If you were not able to make it, I uploaded a few important slides with details at the bottom of the newsletter. Please let me know if you have any questions!


As you may have heard, Mr. K is starting a project this week. We are reading Humphrey to the class and each weekend a student gets to take Humphrey home. So Mr. K put together our classroom hamster, Henry, for students to take home each weekend. When it is your child's turn for "Henry", they can write a paragraph or two about their adventure. The class was very excited! We are looking forward to reading about all "Henry's" escapades! (FYI...Henry isn't real...) :)


I will also attach a link to a website we began using this week in math, multiplication.com. It allows students to take an auto self corrected test in all 4 operations and times them. So far they have enjoyed practicing their facts with this program. There are also games to play to practice as well.
