Just a quick note to shout out about our students who are showing great respect and responsibility when it comes to our school wide 8 Keys! Jennifer and Shane were chosen from second grade this week. Way to go!
For March is Reading Month, we are partnering with Jimmy Johns Field to earn a free ticket to a game. Your child will be bringing home a note explaining more about this. Our class decided to earn one base per week for the month. To complete each base, they must read for twenty minutes. Those can be broken into smaller parts, like ten minutes in the car on the way to something, then ten minutes before bed. The twenty minutes can be reading on a tablet or computer like in RAZ-KIDS. You can choose to turn on the captions or subtitles for their favorite TV Show and have them read the lines out loud! Reading jokes and riddles, or street signs all count toward this goal. The children can choose to read picture books, chapter books, cook books, etc! Just have some fun and work on twenty minutes each day. Oh, yes, that is for five days out of the seven each week. Once they complete that, fill out the bookmark and send it back to school. They can do more than twenty minutes, but it is more important that they read five days at twenty or more minutes each of those days. I really don't want it to be forty minutes on one day and then skip a day or two. It is better to build a stronger reader by reading EVERY DAY! Thanks for participating!
Speed math is coming along nicely. We have more than half the class who have earned their bowl and now a spoon! The next goal is to get a scoop of ice cream, yum.
Monday is "class shirt day" or "Morgan apparel". This is school-wide spirit day!
Monday will also start our PHASE TWO of WRITE and TELL. I am so proud of the writing that the kids are doing. They love sharing with our class. The phase two note has been coming home once your child shared this week. Look for the small changes in details.
Enjoy the evening!
