Mrs. Howard's News

Thats a wrap August

Thank you!

I appreciate everyone that was able to come out to Back to School Night the other night! I hope that I was able to answer many questions. I know that I did move pretty fast, so I attached more information to this newsletter. If you missed Back to School Night, please read through this and watch some of the videos as it will go over what we discussed the other night.
There are still spots available to volunteer in the classroom. Please click the link.


I could really use help with Thursday Folders

Missed Back To School Night?

What we discussed...

1. Talked about how to use Google Classroom (watch tutorial above)

2. Where to find homework (Google Classroom - Under Homework)

3. Flocabulary - This is studying the meaning of the words. I am focused on if they know the meaning of word and not so much the spelling. There is an assignment that is attached to help them study the words, however this is completely optional. Some learn words in different ways so I will allow them to choose what is best for them However, if they do complete the attached assignment they can earn up to $10 for completing the assignment.

4. Morphology - This is the study of prefixes, affixes and suffixes. We will get more into this in a couple of weeks.

5. Xtra Math - We will be using Xtra Math this year to study math facts. If students complete 40 Minuets each week, they can earn up to $20.

With Hugs, Mrs. Howard!!
