Week of March 3rd -7th
We had a fantastic week celebrating “I Love to Read Month”. DEAR (drop everything and read) was a huge success. We read our first chapter book from start to finish this week. We started the series, “The Boxcar Children”. The kids seem to really enjoy book number one. We will start book number two next week.
Next Monday is “I Want You to be Happy” Day. We are going to celebrate and recognize the hard work of our staff throughout the week. We will be also doing random acts of kindness and putting a special emphasis on good manners. In addition, the students will be drawing pictures and making cards for staff members.
Thank you for continuing to work at home each week on the “popcorn” words that I send home. We have introduce 49 “popcorn” words this year. I will be sending home a sheet next that shows which words your child has mastered and what words they need additional help with. Please continue to work on these words each week.
We have started working on our math facts. Children develop at different stages. Many of our children are ready to practice addition and subtraction facts. They will progressing through the fact families at their own pace.
Reminder that Monday, March 3rd is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 12:30.
Have a great weekend!
