WHOOO's READING is back in full swing!
This week we finally got students back on Whooo's Reading and they are extremely excited!
Students have weekly goals that lead them to make their monthly goal.
I ask that students have:
-3 Entries per week ( these include: writing reviews, completing an exercise, or answering questions.)
-1 passed quiz per week
-4 passed quizzes.
Students meeting goals will earn Pizza Hut pizza, Cici's Buffets, and Arby's meals. - They may pick 1 each month.
Now these goals also tie into their reading grades and requirements. So even though the students see this as fun... It is very much so an academic requirement.
Some students have expressed concerns about access at home... I am hoping that this message clears up any misconceptions about it being "a game" or a waste of time on an Ipad instead of doing homework. This program really enriches our students' reading and comprehension of text.
-If it is still something that is not able to be completed at home students will have DEAR time (8:10-8:40) every morning to jump on and a short time during independent reading.
This program really encourages and builds a love for reading!
Any questions please email or call!
- I will also talk about it tonight at Parent Night!
FALL PICTURE DAY!
Picture day is next Wednesday(9/27).
Picture forms/money orders are going home with students today (9/22).
FALL ROUND UP!
Today a letter is going home to explain our Fall Round Up classroom auction item. Please try your best to get the asked items to us by October 13th.
-- We are wanting to create a CUTE book bag and fill it with our students' favorite books. In class I will have each student write about why it is their favorite book and attach it to the inside cover. We will fill the bag with the books! We are asking for a favorite book from each student and a $10 donation to go towards the cost of the bag, a blanket, reading light, and gift cards to Barnes and Nobles and the Rosehill Book Fair.
-- Any questions or concerns please look to the letter going home today and contact Nicole Black (Our HRP)
Parents: At the beginning of month I will hand out the Scholastic book fair magazine that is sent to our class. The book orders are due around the 15th of each month.
