We had our kick off into March is Reading Month this afternoon. The children enjoyed some books put to music, learning the two more keys (flexibility and commitment), and hearing about a reading challenge.
For the reading challenge, children from room 14 are being asked to read four or more books this month. These books can be chapter books, read alouds-picture books that are shared with younger siblings or cousins, or partner reading with a parent. Each week, your child will be given a ticket to complete. This ticket is to be filled in after they read a book. If they read four books this month, they will be eligible to receive a free ticket to a Jimmy Johns Field baseball game! Plus, some of our Morgan teachers will be doing a hot wings challenge that students will be able to watch!
The first ticket is coming home today! You can watch for it and start reading, this does not have to be completed in one day. Books can take several days to complete. Be sure to help your child if they need it. It is important that the information is filled in so they take ownership and stay committed to the process of improving their reading!
Of course, reading on a regular basis, like 20 minutes each day, will help your child improve their reading skills.
We will be doing our spelling test tomorrow instead of Friday this week. The words are from last week. Then on Thursday and Friday, we will take the Unit 4 Theme Test, Unit 4 math test (addition and subtraction with double digits), and making a landforms book as a social studies assessment. We have a busy week ahead!
This Thursday is Morgan Skating Night! Friday will be crazy socks day!
Enjoy the evening!
