Please install Istation on your home computers or tablet to utilize this program at home. I am seeing tremendous growth in reading from students who are using this program nightly.
RazKids has replaced Baggie Book take-home readers. Students should be reading books on Raz-Kids on their reading level (assigned). There is also an App for this program on tablets. Teacher username is EThune

The folders go home each Monday and are due each Friday signed by a parent.
*Students should be reading a MINIMUM of 20 minutes nightly. Istation, Raz-Kids, Fluency passages, fry word practice, and library books can all count toward these minutes.
*Please check our class Facebook page for more frequent updates & reminders. I will also be posting frequently for your assistance with supplies for Science. We are short on materials and resources, so I need help from parents so that we can do our inquiry labs.
*Information about the class party went home on Monday. Please read over that information & make sure to send the item/items your child is responsible for to ensure a successful party!
*Our library day is Monday. Students need to return books each Monday. If they are ready to trade books throughout the week, I will let them trade new books as time permits. A good time to go is in the morning before class starts at 7:40. Please encourage your child to do this.
*Please label all coats, hats, gloves, etc. As the colder months approach, we have a lot of lost-and-found items.
