Blair Fowler will be shadowing me every day next week (3/17-21) in preparation of my maternity leave. I will then observe her teach the class the following week (3/24-3/28). Please let me know if you have any questions. Miss Fowler is expected to take over the class after Spring Break on April 7th. Her email address is bfowler2@k12albemarle.org.

In the Classroom Next Week

Contractions, words that end with -tion, St. Patrick's Day writing prompts, magnets, writing our first and last names

Assessments

Can you believe the 3rd quarter ends on March 27th? I will start the lighter assessments next week (letter production, counting by 5s, counting by 10s, coin recognition). The more rigorous assessments will be administered after Spring Break (Rigby reading, PAWS sight words, writing a complete sentence, writing first and last name). Please email me with any questions.
