Notes and Updates
This week we have continue to push ourselves to do our best. The students have reached their goal of 10 minutes of stamina and made it to 11 minutes!!! Make sure to congratulate your child. They also have been learning to be better turn and talk partners, as well as began learning to partner read. In writing, students are learning to write longer and add more details. We have also have been focusing on the number line and learning to do tally marks.
During this week their reading folders were sent home. Students have chosen books that they should be able to read with ease. They have practiced these books at school. On Wednesday they will not get new books because they should be reading their library books. Also on Thursday they will not receive books because it is the weekend and can read books from home. Next week homework will be due the following Sunday because the students do not have school on Thursday.
If there are any problems with students ASA programs or travels please contact Zach McCabe at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to hep as much as possible, but Zach is in charge of all ASA programs and will have all the information you need.
