The time has come! My last few days of maternity leave are wrapping up and on Thursday I will be returning and starting my school year! This time with Luke has been amazing and as you all know- seemed to go entirely WAY too fast. However, I am excited to get to know this group. I have heard nothing but amazing things about them! I know we will have a wonderful year!
Here is what is going on this week!
Reading- Students are wrapping up building stamina with Daily 5. I will begin giving the DRA next week to determine reading levels. Once I finish those up, we will begin reading groups!
Writing- Students are working on "bold beginnings" and are starting to write a personal narrative. Be sure your student is looking over spelling words before the test on Friday!
Math- This week will wrap up Unit 1. Students are working on solving word problems using addition and subtraction. They will also begin reviewing for our first math test that will be on Friday. Look for a review sheet that is coming home on Wednesday!
*FRIDAY IS 1/2 DAY! Students will be released at 12:40 and teachers will participate in professional development for the afternoon.
Friday is also our Fundraiser kick-off! Fundraiser packets will come home by the end of the week (either Thursday or Friday).
*Open House is coming up on September 30th. Come see what your student has been up to this first quarter, sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences, and much more!
