The Longmore Learners

Week of May 16th - Last Week of School

End of the Year

I thought I would do one more newsletter to outline the schedule for this week. Once again, thank you for sharing your students with me. It has been a wonderful year and I have loved having the comments this year about how great my class is! It is each student in this class that makes it that way. I will miss them, but look forward to hearing what wonderful things they will be doing in the future!

I know it is difficult to get kids to read, but I have to share with you...The single most surprising piece of data to me was the loss of reading skills that happens during the summer. PLEASE have your students read, listen to books, read comics, read magazines, anything, just read. It is so important. I will send home a packet with different reading programs this summer. The library is open this summer, and you can get an app where you can check out ebooks, without even going to the library (as well as audio books).

I will also keep Prodigy open for the class over the summer. It is a great tool for students to keep up with their Math skills.

Most of all, have a great summer with your new fifth graders! How time flies!
