Here's our first group picture! We'll work on spacing as the year goes on! :)
I am so impressed with your children! We had such an amazing first couple weeks of school! Thank you for sharing them with me! We have such a great group, so I am looking forward to an amazing year ahead of us! Here are some pictures of our class! :)
Also thank you so much to those who donated items or brought gifts to my classroom during open house and the first few days of school. I am very appreciative!
Snack - We have one snack time a day in the morning. Because our classroom is so far away from the vending machine, I will not allow students to use the vending machines to go get snacks. Please pack a snack from home.
Water Bottles - I have made a water bottle station in our classroom. Students may bring a water bottle from home and fill it up in the morning. This is to avoid traffic to the water fountain. I will send the water bottles home on Fridays so they can be washed and returned on the following Monday.
Homework – This week (September 11) will be the first week of homework!!! Each week I will send home a reading log. Students need to read for 20 minutes at least five nights a week. A parent will need to initial the log for each night of reading. Homework will be due on Mondays so you can also read on the weekends if you have busy weeks! I encourage you to practice math facts and spelling words (once we start having tests) often. Most weeks I will give a math paper or writing assignment to students. PLEASE know that if this assignment takes your student longer than 20 minutes, DO NOT make your child continue to work on it. Write me a note, and I will reteach the concepts to your child. I do not want them to stress or hate school because the homework is too hard.
Can't wait for an amazing year!!!!!!!
