What's Happening in Class
It is very important that each student has this reading time each night. This will make your child a stronger more independent reader. (and better writer too!)
When your child has completed their reading each night, they should be logging their reading time into their reading logs including pages read, each night. ( example pg. 30- 46)
This is an important tool for both the students and me, to reflect on and evaluate their personal
Math - Topic 3 Applying Properties: Multiplication Facts for 3,4,6,7,8.
Writing - Unit 1 Personal Narrative. Students will be composing stories about events that happened in their lives.

Your child will be bringing home their student planner each night. It will have the current homework assignment for the night as well as any important reminders. I ask that a parent or guardian sign your child's planner each night. This signature will show that you have reviewed your child's work and the assignment is complete.
*The planner may also contain teacher notes when needed.*
If you would like to donate classroom supplies here are a few items that are needed
throughout the year.
- paper towels
Thank you in advance for any donations
I feel it is important to keep the parent-teacher lines of communication open.
You may e-mail me at email@example.com anytime you have a question or concern.
If you prefer you can write a note in your child's planner. I check planners every morning . If it is a private issue, send in a note in a sealed envelope, attach to the planner.
