    Remember to practice your words every day! 

    Writer's Workshop Unit of Study:


    When writing~remember our goals:
    *Begin each sentence with a capital
    *End each sentence with a:  .  ? or  !   
    *Finger spaces in between words
    *Check your work~Does it make sense?



    Practice those facts!

    Please practice addition and subtraction facts to 18 with your child. 
    A simple deck of addition and subtraction flash cards can be a huge help with this.
    They can be purchased at the dollar store. 
    It is very important that your child knows these facts in order to complete our timed fast facts tests.

     Aim for the Stars





    Remember to always pick "good- fit" books to read!  It is easy to do:


    I PICK


    1. I choose a book
    2. Purpose-  Why do I want to read it?
    3. Interest- Am I interested in it?
    4. Comprehend- Am I understanding what I am reading?
    5. Know- I know most of the words

      Many Parents Ask:

      How can I help my child become a better reader?

      Continue to read to him every day and expose him to the language of books. Have him read to you.  If he makes a mistake, simply tell him the correct word and let him move on. This increases enjoyment and fluency.

      To increase comprehension, talk about the story after you've read it.






    Please encourage your child to show kindness, respect and appreciation to others!

    Bucket Filling Ideas To Do At Home

    1. Ask a friend, neighbor or family member if you can help them complete a chore
    2.  Help around the house, community, beaches, parks, libraries
    3.  Keep track of your bucket filling by using:
    a calendar to record how you filled someone's bucket, a bucket and place stones inside to keep track or a journal to write about what you did!

    Recess Reminders:  We will be going outside daily, weather permitting. Please remember that for safety reasons, your child needs to be wearing sneakers to play on the playground.  Thank you for your cooperation.


    It is a great idea to send an extra water bottle to school for your child to drink after recess!
