READING LOGS

Reading logs have been sent home with the students. I am asking students to read 20 minutes/night for 5 nights a week. (Total of 100 minutes/week). Next reading log is due Monday, September 9, 2019.

MATH FACTS

We will be practicing our math facts daily in class. If a student is having trouble passing a level, I would like them to also practice them at home to keep them moving along so they don't fall behind. We have begun addition this week. We will move into subtraction next, followed by multiplication and division as the students progress. You can purchase flashcards at the dollar store for $1 if you need some! Please let me know if you need resources to help your child with their facts...

SNACKS

I allow students to bring healthy snacks into the classroom if they want. Please keep them HEALTHY. No sugary foods, candy, chips, etc. Also, they are welcome to bring a water bottle if they want. Please do not send anything except water. Per our school handbook, no other drinks are allowed. If students bring other things I will ask them to leave them in their locker until the end of the day. I do allow gum anytime in the classroom unless I can hear it or see it, then I will ask them to spit it out.

PAINT SHIRT

Students can bring a paint shirt and keep it in their extra locker if they want. They may be using these in art, after school, or in the classroom throughout the year.
