Classroom News and Reminders

Charging Chromebooks- PLEASE be sure that your child's Chromebook is charged before coming to school each day.


Conferences- If we have not conferenced yet please send me a dojo message and we can set up a time that works for you.


Reading Homework- Your child should be reading for 15 to 20 minutes each night. This practice is so important to their growth as readers, if they read out loud to you it will really help with their fluency (how many words per minute they can correctly read) Please log the book that your child reads in his/her assignment book. If you do not have books on their level text please feel free to have them hope on RAZ kids and read. The quizzes that go with these books will help them work on their comprehension.


Spelling Homework- We have been getting into some complicated phonics lessons these past few weeks and I am really proud of the work that kids have been doing, and the growth I am seeing on their spelling tests. Keep up the hard work studying and engaging in activities nightly.

Communication

I believe communication is the way we are going to make this year an excellent success! I check my DOJO daily and repeatedly so please send me a message about any questions or concerns. If you need to call me please do that from 10-45-11:15 or 3:30-4:00.
