Mrs. Codding's Class
In Reader's Workshop we have be working on reading and identifying non fiction texts. We are learning many new facts! Ask you child what nonfiction is and what fiction is and how to tell the difference! Please be sure you are reading with your child every night at home. This consists of you reading to them, but also now having books on their level that they can read to you. The library is a fantastic resource to check out books on our level!
In Writer's Workshop we have also be working with non fiction. We are writing non fiction papers. Some of us are writing nonfiction books! We are becoming pretty amazing authors! Keep up writing at home during break. Check to see if your child is using an uppercase letter to start the sentence, lowercase letters in the middle, finger spaces between the words and a periods or some sort of punctuation at the end. If you notice something missing, go ahead and point it out and ask them to try and do it the next time!
The PH School district is adding an Early Release Day to our Calender on Thursday, April 23. Students will be going home at 1:30 (or to Adv Club if enrolled). This is also Take Your Child To Work Day. Please add this date to your calender.
On Monday I sent home your child's sweet little pictures that were taken a few weeks ago. Please decide if you would like to keep them or not. If you want them, there is a price list inside the envelope. Return your money and/or any unwanted pictures to school as soon as possible. Thank you for your help!
