All About ME!

If your child has a June, July, or August birthday, they may bring cookies to share with the class on their All About Me Day in honor of their summer birthday. Storebought only, no nuts. We have 22 kids in our class. :)

Be sure to let me know if you want me to keep a certain book a SECRET from your child if it is a birthday or holiday gift.

Reading is the Most Important Homework

Students will keep 3-4 books inside their Guided Reading Bag at all times and I will rotate the oldest one out as we get a new book each week. The Book Log inside the Guided Reading Journal is for Teacher Use Only, please.


The most important homework you do each night is to READ!


Thank you for your patience this week--I'm behind on getting all my groups new books. We've been working hard on writing a special piece. I will catch up next week so everyone has at least 1-2 new books for the break.
