Mrs. Andrews' Class | Rodeo Hills Elementary | February 2016

Reading Challenge... Ready...Set...Read!

We are now in week 2 of Rodeo Hills' Reading Challenge. Each student has received his or her new goal and their current AR reading level. Please encourage your child to read at home and take AR quizzes at school regularly. Students may check out books from the class or school library.

Februrary 26th is the last day of the trimester and the last day to reach the class goal of 40 AR points. All students with 40 AR points at 85% or higher will be invited to a pizza party. The deadline is less than a month away! Read on!

Character Counts! February's focus is on Caring. "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – Dr. Seuss

Tech 2016 Update

We've been learning so much! The students are all set with their Google accounts and have been busy completing assignments in Google Classroom. It's been such a treat seeing student engagement as they learn how to use Google Drawings, Docs, and hyperdocs. This month we will collaborate on a slideshow presentation using our language arts selection, "The Life and Times of the Ant."

Students are also using Front Row for Math and ELA. Students can practice math fact fluency and problems by standard in class or at home.

Our class Instagram is up and running. You can follow or visit my account at mrsandrews555. I regularly post de-identified student work, photos, and activities. I also include meaningful quotes and anchor charts used in class to help with homework.

Congratulations to Our January Winners

Jordyn McGee received a class Student of the Month Award for January. Sibraim Alegria and Layloni Williams received honorable mentions for their positive class leadership. Way to go!

This month is all about Caring. I will be on the lookout for those students exhibiting exceptional caring skills and acts of kindness.
