Summer to do list...
- READ! READ! READ! Please encourage your child to read - read to themselves, read to a sibling, read to you, read to a pet, etc. It is also wonderful if they are read to! Listening to reading is very important and helps fluency. Read anything and everything! Remember, reading texts like magazines and comic books still counts as reading.
- Write! It would be great if your child kept a summer journal and wrote as much as possible. They can write about anything they want or feel free to give them a prompt, "Where would you travel to if you could go anywhere in the world?" or "What would you do on the perfect summer day?" You can also find a funny picture in a magazine or on the internet and tell your child to write a story about it. Some of the best pictures are advertisements with animals in magazines! Another option is writing letters. Please, please, please have your child write me a letter! I promise that I will write back!

- Math Facts - please have your child practice their addition and subtraction facts. Also, if they are ready, have them start practicing their multiplication facts. They will need to know these fluently by the end of the third grade. The more practice in all of these areas, the better!
- Have FUN!!!!
Congratulations to Isabellah, voted our most "Sparkly" student!
Field Day - Tuesday, June 9
(Outside if weather permits, at high school field house if weather does not permit.)
Come join us from some fun and excitement on Tuesday, June 9th. This year's theme (voted on by our 5th graders) is Sports Twists. There will be some games involving your typical sports but with a twist invented by the 5th graders. The 5th graders will be teaching/leading the events this year.
Please send an extra set of clothes/shoes and towel for your child (some activities may include water if we are outside). Also, make sure to put sunscreen on. If the weather does not permit us to be outside we will be in the high school field house. The inside activities then will not have water involved. If you are able to join us please let your child's classroom teacher know. Thank you and hope to see you then.
Come and enjoy the fun! Don't forget your sunscreen and water bottles!
Here's some fun facts about what we learned:
