Room 30 News
Your child MUST be able to complete at least 30 fast facts in ONE MINUTE by the end of the year. Please continue to practice their facts to memory (no fingers, no pausing). One minute a night , there is a need for speed!! This is imperative to make their transition to 3rd grade a smooth one.
We continue to have homework Monday through Thursday. Please moniter that your child is completing MATH and spelling hw nightly. Reading for 15 minutes each night will do wonders to help your child progress in fluency and comprehension. Please encourage them to read, read , read!!!
Check out our American Education Week STEM Activity
Continue to review math facts (addition and subtraction) nightly using flashcards. Knowing fact families help your child immensely as we learn different math strategies. Your child needs to have all facts memorized (no fingers!!)
Please check and sign your child's planner EACH night to verify that they have done their HW.

If there are any changes in your child's dismissal routine (child care, parent pick up, etc. please submit a note in writing with your child's full given name, classroom teacher (me!) and what the change will be. This note is given to the receptionists and they might not know who "JP" is. If there is a last minute change, please call the school at 732-833-4650 and let the office know. They will contact me immediately.
Weekly Spelling Homework Schedule:
Monday: write the first half of your words 3x each, block format, skip a line between each NEW word. Examples are shown on the inside cover of your child's spelling HW notebook.
Tuesday: write the 2nd half of your words 3x each
Wednesday: Rainbow write your words 1x each. Write each word ONE time in list format, using a different color for each letter of each word. Ex. apple
Thursday: Pick 5 of your challenging words and write great sentences for each word. Use details and describing words in your sentence. Underline the spelling word used. SKip a line between each sentence.
Please add details, instead of "I have an apple".try adding lots of details.....
GREAT sentence: "On Sunday, I went apple picking with my family and we had a great time."
Having a set of flash cards (both addition and subtraction) at home will help your child to become successful in math. These can be either homemade (index cards are perfect) or store bought (available at most Dollar Stores). Reviewing math facts for five minutes each night will greatly help them become successful learners.
I look forward to a wonderful year.
WE are a TEAM!
Together Each Achieve More
