Monday Update...August 30th

I will post the Monday update each week on here, just in case the one I send home is misplaced.  This will exclude the birthday’s and Stellar Students due to student names.

What an amazing week we had last week. Our class is moving smoothly into a daily routine, where learning is our main goal! OPEN HOUSE is THURSDAY at 6:30, I will start promptly. Please come I have so much information to share and I will be able to answer all your questions!

· Check your child’s behavior passport in the last sleeve of their folder.

· ME BAGS were due today. Please help your child put theirs together and send in tomorrow. Include a photo of family, item representing hobby, favorite book, and any other item that is special.

If you have not done so please send in $5 for our first grade T-shirt and a spare set of clothes in a Ziploc baggie (which will be returned at the end of the year).

· Remember Monday and Friday is PE; please wear tennis shoes. Closed toes shoes must be worn every day! Students will check out library books on Thursday at Media. Get excited!

· On the newsletter are story words. Those words are words that if they know they will have an easier time reading their weekly story they take a comprehension test on. I put them in the newsletter so that you know they are getting exposed to them at school and are there if you want to have your child read them to you at home.

· On Friday I will assess their sight words week 2. Remember they do not get a grade each week, but I do highlight the words they KNOW in their HOME folder. Students do not need to spell these, like it says in the Homework expectations page in their HOME folder. They need to be able to look at the words and read it within 4 seconds.

· This Friday will be their first dictation. Refer to the newsletter to see the phonics skills and examples.

· Check your food for box tops. If you need me to resend the sheet with the products let me know.

· NO SCHOOL next MONDAY, September 6th


THIS WILL USUALLY BE HALF A PAGE...I am “wordy” at the beginning of the year! See you all on THURSDAY at 6:30!!
