Parents! Welcome to the first day of November. It’s finally nice to have some cooler
weather and let’s hope it stays around for a while. I wanted to share with you that your
child has been writing a blog post for the last couple of weeks. I’d love to have your
support to read their writing and give them a comment (and ask clarifying questions).
Please visit http://kidblog.org/CamSix415/
There you can see their writing, and push them to think further. In addition, if you
don’t see your child’s writing on there, then it may be a good point to have
encouraging talk about staying accountable to their work.
Thanks again for your support. The success of your child can only come if we work
Hope your weekend was a restful one. This week we have a few things planned.
Today (Monday) we’ll be supporting the cause to wear pink across the entire school in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This idea was challenged to our school by one of our very own students in our class. (if you can’t wear it today, anytime during the month is welcomed).
Also this coming Friday we have a few deadlines. The first one is that all orders and money from Butter Braid must be turned in. We’ll be sending the money to the company as soon as school is out, hence we’ll need it that morning to count it during the day.
This Friday is also the day we’ll be participating in Ident-A-Kid, so those students who have turned in money (or continue to being in their oder form by Friday morning) will participate in the program and be on the list to receive their Identification Cards.
Continue to monitor the homework of your children this week. There was a better turn out of homework being turned in, and I know the fruit of the studying will transfer over to their academic success in the classroom.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Hope this weekend was restful for you and your family. This past Friday, our grade level assessed our students in the first ten lessons we’ve covered in ratios, as well as our language arts read out loud “Bud, Not Buddy.” Tomorrow (Monday), you’ll receive both exams to review with your child. Please celebrate the strengths and reflect on what could be better for next time. It’s my joy to make sure they show growth, and I’ll continually supply them with learning activities and opportunities to display that growth.
Also be sure to check out our book fair this week. I can’t emphasis enough how important reading is for our students. Check out the selection of books our fair will have by clicking here. If you’re looking for something that is grade level appropriate or would like reviews on specific books, check out the Scholastic App for your iOS or Android device.
Please mark your calendars for August 19th, and join me for our yearly Curriculum Night. I’ll have more details next week, but I’m excited to spend time with all of you in my classroom.
Here’s to a successful week!
