Mrs. Munz's Weekly Memo

Week of September 7, 2015

News From Room 125

Today I sent home the first Homework Calendar. Remember, this is just a suggestion on when your child can complete the assignment(s). It is your child's responsibility to have you sign the calendar indicating they have completed their at-home reading. Eventually I will be adding word work on there as well. This week I included a page from their Math Reference Book to show you what we have been practicing in math. The children have been analyzing the grid patterns and learning how to navigate the number grid as well.

We are continuing to practice independent word work activities in preparation for literacy stations. We will practice one more review list together and then I will begin to differentiate their lists. Reading groups will begin in approximately two weeks.

My CANVAS page is having some technical difficulties at the moment. I will let you know when it is up and running. Eventually, weekly newsletters will be posted on there for you to access.

The Jog-a-Thon is Coming!!

Packets for the annual Jog-a-Thon were sent home last week.

Here are some new incentives for this year:

Grade Level Winner: The class in each grade level with highest % student participation in raising $$$ (i.e. 85% students particpating in Jog-A-Thon) will win a spirit day determined by the class (i.e. pajama day, crazy hair day, backwards day, etc). Participation determined by students turning in ANY amount of pledge money.

School Winner: The class that raises the most overall $$$ will get to silly string Principal Largent, Vice Principal Farley and their teacher. This will be recorded and shown on the announcements.
