Homework packets are coming home on Monday. They will be due the following Monday, February 8th. The packets may be turned in earlier, if needed. All students completing work, earn pirate coins and Dojo points for their table!
Students have a written assignment in their packet this week. Please work on having your child write neatly and add a picture to the top. This week, students will be writing about if they were a teacher, what they would do! I can't wait to read about what they would do in their classroom!
Please continue to have your student write down books on their 100+ book log. Book logs are checked on Fridays. Students who do not have books written on their logs will be reading during their morning work time on Friday. For our morning work on Friday, students have the opportunity to have some free time working on various activities (pattern blocks, puzzles, building sets, play dough, drawing). These activities are only available if the student has written new books on their book log. Students should have at least 4 or more books/chapters written down each week. Remember, if your child is reading a book for Reading Improvement homework, these books can be written down on their book log!
