WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!

Big picture

***A reminder to please turn in all forms to the school this week!

READING LOGS

We will be starting reading logs and AR next week! I will be sending home reading logs on Friday with the students. I am asking students to read 20 minutes/night for 5 nights a week. (Total of 100 minutes/week)

FACT MASTERS

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. Students will change the belts on their ninjas as they pass through the levels. Please ask them about this!

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.
