Living and nonliving review

Gator Chomputation

The class was very excited to begin "Gator Chomputation", our school wide math fluency system. We will do "Chomputation" every Tuesday. Look for this test to come home on Wednesday. This is just for math fluency practice - not for a grade.

Take Home Bags

I will begin sending home take home bags next week. These bags are themed bags that I received through a grant. The first two take home bags I will send home are about pattern blocks and alligators. I send each bag home with one child each day Monday-Thursday. Please be sure and return the bag the following day so another student can take it home. These bags are fun for the whole family to enjoy together. Please be sure to return all materials as many of them are not replaceable.

Scholastic Book Orders!

Your child will bring home Scholastic Book Orders next week. All orders are due by Friday, September 18th.

Wanted!

Our class could use old iPhone's, iPod Touch's, or iPad's if you or anyone you know is upgrading and has one they are not using. For example - when we got my son a phone, I use his old iPod Touch at school. We will not use any data and I would reset the device. We would use it for apps, QR code activities, and as a listening station. We can do so much in with our 2 iPads, but could do much more with more devices!

Dismissal Times...

*Dismissal is at 3:50 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

*Every Wednesday is an Early Release Day - 3:20 pm dismissal.
