The Rigsby Reader 11.10.14

Updates from Room 311

Volunteers/Supplies Needed


We are to the point in the year- where a few extra hands would be helpful! You could come in a certain time every week, or an hour here or there. You could also send me a note/email and I can send cutting/assembling work home to you.

Help Needed:

  • Sit with students during Math (10-11am) or Roots and Wings (1:35-2:20) and drill them with Multiplication Flashcards!
  • Come do some fluency reading drills with students! Every day from 8:10-10am. All the materials and folders are ready for you to come and time students as they week.
  • Copy Room Hero- no desire to be near children? Come make homework packets, or copy reading passages!


  • Yoga balls (You know it's just sitting in your garage...)
  • 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock (Extra Thick paper)
  • Colored Copy Paper
  • Kids Magazines (Sports Illustrated, National Geographic?)

Finding Mrs. Rigsby

If your child has a change in how they are going home- please send a note with your child or call the classroom and leave a message. I try to check my email often- but once I'm teaching I don't stop! Please let me know how I can help your student be successful.
