FLASHLIGHT FRIDAY REMINDER
It would be great if you could send in a flashlight for your child which I can keep in a drawer at school so that if the students have an awesome day I can reward them with an unplanned time to read with Flashlights. If you have an extra flashlight for a student who does not have a flashlight, we would greatly appreciate if we could use them.
- No sharing flashlights
- NO stuffed animals of any size
- SMALL blanket or pillow is acceptable
- If they forget, they will NOT be able to call home because I will have a sub on Friday. So they may want to being their things in on Thursday.
PICTURE DAY IS THIS FRIDAY!!!!!

I found a really cool site where you can actually read the book online. I do not mind you rereading parts with your child at home but prefer you not allow them to read ahead. It is a really good book and often parents enjoys reading what their kids read so they can discuss it with them.
I ask students to not read ahead because we have lots of discussion when I read aloud and students are asked to make predictions.
