Homework

A homework packet will be coming home this Friday. It will have at least a spelling list and several math pages. In general, if your child does only one math page per night, he/she should have had that lesson in class. Please make sure to supervise your child's work. No need to practice incorrectly. If you would initial the packet, that would be great. Many kids will try to do the whole packet on the bus. The packet will be due by the following Friday. If you have a question about something in the packet, write me a note on the paper or shoot me an email.

Spelling

The spelling lists come home in the homework packets on Fridays. They can also be found on my classroom website. We will practice a little in class but these are really for homework study. We will definitely practice the word feature. For example, the first list focuses on words that start with the blends: dr, gl, pl, sl, and cr. Know that many children this age use a j for dr. Our tests will be on Thursdays.

Upcoming Events

Back to School Night

Back to School night is scheduled on September 17 at 6:00. It will be held partly in the gym and partly in classrooms. See the school website or school newsletter for more info. This is more of an Open House format this year. Bring your children, I'll have some information to relay to you and you can ask general questions.

Walking Field Trip

We will be walking to Lake Wilderness Arboretum on September 30th. Our class leaves at 9:40 and will be back by lunch. The ladies at the arboretum put on a nature program for the kids.

Paperwork

Please make sure that you get all of the paperwork that was sent out last Friday back to us. I realize it's a lot of paperwork for you but it's really a lot for me to keep track of and make reminders.
