Field Trip!

Parents,
   Welcome back! I hope you had a nice break with your family. On Feb. 8th we will be going on a field trip to the CA Science Center! Permission slips went home Monday. They must be returned by Friday, Jan.11th. Please email me if you would like to be a chaperone on the filed trip. Your name will be entered into a raffle and will let you know the names I randomly pull. You will need to be at school by 8:00 and we should be back by 2:30, but sometimes we get back later, so keep this in mind when volunteering. :) Also, please email me if you are willing to donate 24 chocolate chip granola bars for the field trip. I'm looking forward to a great year!

Thank You!

I just wanted to say thank you for the class gift! I will be doing lots of shopping over the break. ;) A big thank you to all the parents and room parents who helped organize and volunteer for the party yesterday. The kids had so much fun! Have a wonderful winter break. I will see you next year!

December Happenings

Parents,
   It was so nice meeting with all of you at our conferences! You should be proud of your child's progress this year. Thank you to those of you who donated books to our class from the Book Fair. The kids were so excited to get these new books for our classroom library. Practice math problems will be coming home, so please have your child complete all the math problems and turn it in by 12/21. Just a few reminders below.
 
1. Wednesday, the 19th is the Winter Sing at 9 in the MPR. First grade will go right after kindergarten.
2. Friday, the 21st we get out at 12. Have your child wear their favorite pajamas on the 21st, but please bring comfortable shoes for P.E.
3. No homework December 24-28 and January 7-11. Homework will resume on January 14th. I do encourage you to have your child keep reading during these weeks and over winter break. Don't forget about having your child go onto Raz kids as well. Please email me if you feel your child's level on Raz Kids is too hard or too easy.
4. Flat Stanley due January 7th when we come back!
 
Have a wonderful winter break with your family. I can't wait to see you when we get back. :)

November Reminders

Hi Parents!

I can't believe the first trimester is coming to an end! I have been assessing your children this week and I am pleased with the progress I am seeing so far! I am eager to share their progress and goals I have for them at conference time:).
 
1. Red assessment folders went home yesterday. Please look them over and help your child with any problems they missed. Return the tests in the folder as soon as possible. Don't forget to sign the paper in the left pocket so I know you saw the tests.

2. Conference sign up reminders will be emailed to you if they haven't been already. Please email me directly if you need to make any changes.
 
3. Raz Kids info is coming home today. Many of you have already received the username and password info. This info. was sent home last week, but email me if you have any questions. This is a reading program that we have been using in class. The students can read, listen, and answer questions to stories that are at their level:). Sometimes it is hard to find books your child can read on their own, but now there is! I'm giving this to you over the break so you and your child can explore together. Have your child show you what he/she does. They should know by now;). I am also including some tips for you so you understand what your child should be doing. The next homework assignments will include Raz-kids as part of their reading logfor homework. Please note that kids should read AND answer questions. If the story is nonfiction, please have your child read and listen before answering questions.  
 
4. Box Tops: Paper is coming home today. Please have your child collect 20 Box Tops and turn them into our class. This is a great way to earn money for our school! Each Box Top is worth 10 cents and adds up quickly!

5. We are starting a new unit in Social Studies on maps. I have been reading Flat Stanley to the students about a boy who became flat after a bulletin board fell on him. He had many adventures because of his unique shape;).

Your children brought home their own Flat Stanley last Friday! Please have your child color and cut Flat Stanley. Be creative! Add glitter, fabric, yarn, wiggle eyes, foil…etc. Then send Stanley on a trip to visit a friend or family member. Send them the completed letter (on blue paper) and mail both the blue letter and Stanley. Encourage your friend or family member to take pictures and mail Stanley back with souvenirs! Please see the information in your child's folder for more details.

** You may wish to send it to someone you see at Thanksgiving. Think of someone and ask them ahead of time if they wouldn't mind taking Stanley around town and take some pictures. Students love bringing them back in January to share the adventures! Have fun!

**Due date is January 7, 2019
 
 
If I don't see you, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and I'll see you when we get back!
