Holman School Spirit Days
Reading: Reading logs are beginning tonight September 18th. The reading log will be sent home Monday through Thursday and can be found inside of your child's red book baggie. Students must return the book baggie with their reading logs to school each day. Reading logs will be checked in the morning at the start of reading class. Students must log what they are reading and for how long they are reading. Let me know if you have any questions about this.
Math: Each night students will be bringing home a math homework sheet. The sheet will be from their EnVision Workbooks and it will be labeled as "homework." This will be due the morning after it is sent home. The homework sheets will always correspond with the lesson taught that day.
Student of the Week
Starting on October 7th, we have our first student of the week chosen! Below find some information on what your child needs to do as student of the week:
I will choose one student every Friday. I will be choosing students randomly each week. All students will have the opportunity to be our star student of the week by the end of the school year. When the student is chosen, I will be sending home the “All About Me” posters the students have been working on the past few weeks. Over the weekend, the students are asked to complete their poster by adding a photo of themselves in the blank space where it says, “This is a picture of me.” Each day of the week, the student will be able to bring in or show us something special about themselves. Some students may need to finish writing and coloring their posters. Please finish this over the weekend. The schedule is as follows:
Monday: Bring in your poster with a photo of you and share it with the class.
Tuesday: Bring in your favorite book and you or one of the teachers can read it to the class.
Wednesday: Choose the Go Noodle for the day.
Thursday: We will make a class poster with your name and all the words the class can make out of your name. The poster will be sent home.
Friday: Share any special talents you have with the rest of the class.
Please let me know if you have any questions about star student of the week. I look forward to learning more about your child!
If you have any questions you can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading homework will begin tonight, September 18th. Going forward, your child will bring home a red book baggie with a reading log inside. You need to record the date, minutes read, and the title of the book. A parent/guardian signature is required for each night read. This will be sent home Monday-Thursday each week. Tonight aim to read for at least 15 minutes. We will increase this time as your child develops stronger reading stamina. Please return the reading log and book baggie to school each morning. Let me know if you have any questions!
