Captain Phillips' Pirates
PLE Room 307
I will also talk a little about word study here, as it is really related to both reading and writing. Please continue to work on the word study packets each week with your child. This packet is meant to reinforce the skills that your child is learning here in school, and will help them to become both better readers AND better writers.
Binder Q & A
A: If something is shoved in a pocket, it can come out. A few kiddos have reading logs in a pocket and those can stay, however PLEASE go through your child's binder and take out the stuff that's not in the 3-ring part.
Q: Should my child bring this home everyday?
A: Yes. This is for you to see some of the things we are doing in the classroom. It is kind of a "traveling portfolio". That being said, please remember to return it everyday!
Q: Can I take out the graded papers?
A: ONLY the things that are shoved in the pockets should be taken out. Once we finish a unit, I will let you know and you can keep those things at home. This is to help show growth throughout a unit/grading period/year.
