It was wonderful to talk with everyone at conferences! It's so helpful to get to know you and your child better. We are beginning quarter two with all new indicators, and I want to share them with you. Please look at my website.
I’m going to give the children different choices for their nightly reading; Raz-KIds (listen to a story, read the story, and take the quiz) The children are signed up under Haberstro or Maisonet, not my name. It’s an excellent program. The attached letter explains it further, a book from the classroom, library book, or book from home. Please have your child retell what he/she is reading using words from the text (Character, setting, main idea, sequence the events, literary understanding, predicting, fact/opinion, compare and contrast, difficult vocabulary, story lesson, author’s purpose.)
The Fundation packets are always two weeks long and due on a Friday. They are very helpful for their reading and writing skills. We will start to go to the Makerspace every Wednesday afternoon. I’m super excited for the students. We will begin with centers, then move on to a turkey and snowman activities. We will also be producing a product to sell at the Snowflake Shoppe the beginning of December that will correlate with our Social Studies unit. Science will be weather this quarter. Reading and Writing will be Non-Fiction.
Thank you for your continuous support!
Any questions, concerns, please email, call, or write a note in your child’s planner.
