Our spelling test will be on Friday, Feb. 19th.

Homework packets are coming home on Tuesday. They will be due the following Monday, February 22nd. 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. Students should be able to write at least 3 sentences on the topic. We are working on writing our letters neatly, spacing, capitals, punctuation and spelling. If you are in need of pencils for this assignment, please let me know and we will send some home with your child. These pages are collected and put into a class book that is kept in our class library.

Data Notebooks

We are still missing some of our data notebooks. Please make sure to send these back by Monday so that we can add and update our fluency scores.

Student Showcase

We have many time slots still available for our student showcases. Please come and let your child have a chance to be your guide in our classroom. If you have been contacted for an individual conference, this is in addition to the student showcase. Please sign up for both! The link below is for the Student Showcase. Currently, we have only 6 out of 21 students signed up. We'd like to have 100% student participation! Please take a moment and find a time that works for you!

Field Trip!

Our field trip is this Thursday! Please make sure to send your student with a sack lunch and throw away drink!
