Welcome to November! Thanksgiving Break is fast approaching! Here’s what is going on in our room:
Our class is working hard towards a goal of reading 5,000,000 words and we are off to a great start! Book It minutes are valuable at home, and S.S.R. time is valuable at school. Please continue to help support the love of reading with your child.
We have begun state research! Your child’s state is _____________________________, and have been learning interesting facts about the states this week. If your family has any interesting stories or artifacts from the state that your child could share, please bring them to school and we would love to talk about them! This is a school project and every day we work on a different part of the State Report. A rubric is available if you would like to know what we covered in the day. Reports do not go home unless a student falls behind and needs more time to complete the task required. The due date is Monday, and students will present their reports on Tuesday.
The first quarter has finished, report cards sent out, and we are halfway through the second quarter of school. Please visit with me, e-mail, text, or call me with any concerns or communication needs you have regarding your child. We do not have Parent -Teacher Conferences, however, I am available after school most days until 4:30 and would love to conference with you about your student. You can check your student’s grades as often as you like on Infinite Campus as long as you have set up a username and password with Ms. Karlee in the office.
We participate in a Christmas Party in December. Each student buys a gift for another student to enjoy the fun in the gift exchange. Many families like to shop over Thanksgiving Break, and we will draw names next week. More information to follow then.
Have a great day!
