WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL NOTE:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am so excited to have all of my previous students return as well as continue to get to know all of my new students! We are going to have a lot of fun this school year and learn a great deal!
In September, I will begin accessing students in the VB Mapp curriculum to see what new skills they will be working on this year as well as their reading and math programs.
Homework will begin in October. Homework packets will be sent home on Mondays and please return them by Friday. Thank you!
Weekend Talks will be sent home on Fridays and please return them by Monday. The first weekend talk will be sent home this Friday, September 6th and will be due back on Monday, September 9th. This is a good opportunity for students to work on conversation skills, active listening and to learn about each other. If possible, please be specific in what is written. For example, if your child went out for ice cream . . . please note what kind of ice cream he or she had (e.g., vanilla; chocolate; strawberry). This will help us in helping your child add details to the conversation and in helping other students ask different types of questions. Please DO NOT feel obligated to have to do something out of the ordinary every weekend! It could be as simple as spending time with family playing a board game or watching a movie. Weekend talks are just a great way for us to have students recall information, check to see if the information is accurate and work on social/verbal skills. Thank you!
