No Excuse Words

Each week we practice spelling 5 new words. Once they are added to the word wall at the end of the week, these 5 words become "no excuse" words and must be spelled correctly each time we write them. This week's 5 words are:

1. are

2. but

3. come

4. for

5. has


This Friday is Tiger Trek! Please be sure to have your student wear their red t-shirt. Donation forms went home in folders. Please let me know if you need another copy. This is our main fundraiser for the year. We appreciate your donations! Thank you!

Scholastic Books

Our class code is GZYGP. You can order online anytime. Orders for September are due Friday, September 26th. Each time a parent puts in an order online, it helps our class to get free books! Scholastic currently has a promotion-if we get $300 in orders in the month of September, our class earns 10,000 bonus points! That would equal hundreds of free books for our classroom. If we get to our goal, each student will be able to pick a book from an upcoming order.

Did you know that Scholastic has a feature called Book Wizard? You can filter book titles by reading level! First graders generally enter at a DRA 4/6 and the expectation at the end of first grade is a DRA 18. Want to see what these levels look like?

We are currently in need of extra snacks for students who do not have or forget to bring a snack. Graham crackers are a great choice, although if you see something else you would like to donate, that is not a problem. :) Please remember that we are a peanut free classroom. Thank you! The students appreciate it!
