Wonderful Week 2

We had a great second week of school!  Here are a few updates, reminders, etc.

  • Please check your child's folder and sign their planner each night.  I REALLY appreciate the notes about changes in dismissal.  It is a BIG help!
  • Homework is to read and complete the reading log in the planner each night.  
  • Since our special area schedule is CRAZY and we all go to Media different days on different weeks, I have arranged with Mrs. Keck for us to go to the Media Center every Tuesday as a class to return and check out books.   
  • Remember to sign up for Remind 101 if you would like to receive texts from our class.  If you need our code again, just let me know!
  • THANK YOU Samuel and family for donating a soccer ball to our class.  We were so excited to play with it on Friday.  
Now for some pictures!
We started our second STEM challenge.  We are not finished so pictures of the final products will be coming soon!  I was soooooooo impressed with the creativity, determination and hard work of each and every student!
 Read To Self
We are working hard  building our stamina.  We are almost at 15 minutes!

 Zero the Hero left us a surprise on the 10th day of school!
Look Mrs. W.--Seth is smiling!  I complimented him on it when I was snapping
the picture.  Ava and Grace both turned to see if he really was!
Have a FANTASTIC 3 day weekend!  See you Tuesday!

Welcome Aboard!

What a fantastic first week of school!  We spent the week practicing our rules and procedures, listening to lots of stories and learning the games we will be playing in Math Stations.

We will be getting into our daily routine this week.  (Yea!)  Folders and planners will be coming home Monday.  Please check your child's folder and sign their planner nightly.  For now, homework will be to read for 15 minutes each night.  Please help your child remember to bring their folder and planner to school every day!  If you have any questions or concerns or need to notify me of a change in dismissal, there is a place in the planner or you can just place a note in the left pocket of the folder.  I will check both daily!

A big thank you, parents, for all of the school supplies, hand sanitizer and tissues.  We can never have too many boxes of crayons or boxes of tissues and each item sent in is greatly appreciated!

Don't forget to sign up for Remind 101 if you would like to receive text messages with important notifications and reminders.  If you need our code again, just let me know!

Here are a few pictures from our week for you to enjoy!

We practiced Math Stations and are ready to do them independently next week!

 We completed our first STEM activity.  We had to figure out a way to help the lunch lady get us through the line quickly.  We will be doing a STEM activity most Wednesday afternoons for Science and Math!  I will send home more information about STEM soon.
After reading First Day Jitters, we had some Jitter Juice to help with our jitters.  Ask your student who had the jitters in the story.  We were surprised!
I am looking forward to week #2 and hope your student is too!
