“Sight Words That Stick”

“Sight Words That Stick” went home today in Wednesday folders. Please see the note attached for more details. 
This is a great way to get students excited about reading and hopefully motivate them to work hard and earn their bag of gum balls! Gum balls will be given to students once they have read all of the gum ball reading sets. Students will be able to move along at their own pace based on their reading ability. 
I will keep their gum progress sheet here at school. This is also great reading material to use for reading logs.
 
Remember, at home practice is meant to keep you in the loop with what we are doing in the classroom. It is not meant to overwhelm or frustrate you or your child. If you are feeling this way, please let me know so we can talk about it and work something out. 
Happy reading! 

Writing Homework

Below is the information that was attached to the packet of writing paper. If you have misplaced your packet, you can use any paper to complete this but if you'd like some like I originally sent please let me know. Also, let your child use the box to add a drawing that matches their words. We use the same paper in the classroom so they should be familiar with it. 

Parents:  Please help your child each week brainstorm ideas and discuss the weekly topic for his/her writing.  Please do not allow your child to skip ahead to future writing prompts, complete the story for the week using only one page (front and back if needed).  

Week of:

January 22-We have learned about how animals prepare for winter.  Choose an animal explain how it prepares for winter.  (migrate, hibernate, adapt)

January 29-What do you need to build a snowman?  Make a list.

Wednesday folders

Lots of important flyers and information in folders regarding 99th day of school, Valentine's mailboxes for party, and Cougar Dash shirts! Please clean out folders tonight and send back tomorrow. 
 
Also, our school is partnering with the Houston Zoo over the next several weeks in a cell phone recycling challenge called " Action for Apes". We will be collecting as many hand held electronics, like cell phones, as possible to recycle through the zoo. Donations will be accepted from now until February 16th if you'd like to participate. 

Valentine's Day Party 2-15

Our class party will be on Thursday, February 15 from 2:30-3:30. Please disregard the flyer in folders that had Wednesday, February 14 as the date for the party.   
 
I will be sending more party information out next week, so stay tuned! 

Report Cards & Homework

  • Please look for report cards this evening in Wednesday folders. Sign and return tomorrow if possible.
  • Take home readers and January reading logs are in red folders. Complete as much as you can for this month. Take home readers will not be collected until NEXT Friday, January 26. Remember, the most important part of the reading log is that you are reading with your child everyday. 
  • In red folders, you will find a blue sheet with tips on how to help your young writer at home. Starting Monday, I will be sending home weekly writing prompts to practice at home. 
  • Many of you have continued using Raz Kids at home which is great! This is an amazing online reading resource that our school provides for our students. If you need your child’s log in or password, please contact me and I can get you that information.

Info/Reminders

Parents,
What a great start to the new school year today! I was so excited to see all of my friends and hear all of their stories! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break.
I will not be sending homework this week. Please look for it in red folders on Tuesday.
The water fountain in our classroom is currently out of service until further notice. Feel free to send in a spill-proof water bottle for your child to have in class. We do take restroom breaks in the main hallways, so they will have the chance to get a drink of water then.
 
Also, don’t forget that next Monday, January 15 is a student holiday.
 

Christmas Party

Tomorrow is our Christmas party from 11:30-12:30 and early release at 12:50.
 
If you preregistered and plan on taking your child after the party, I will have a blue ticket for you to show as you exit the building. If you attend the party but did not preregister and want to take your child after the party, you will need to sign out at the front office then come back for you child. We are not allowed to release students to party guests until they have a blue ticket in hand. 
I hope all of that made sense.  
 
Please let me know if you have any questions about tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to all of the fun tomorrow! 

Reading Logs

Take home readers will not be sent home this week. Please send back any readers you may have at home to help keep our class set complete. Thank you to those who return them weekly!
 
December reading logs may be turned in after the new year or this Friday if it's complete. 
 
Also, a big thank you to those who have sent in Christmas party donations :) 
Can't wait!

Next week

Monday is our Polar Express day. Don't forget your PJ's! 
 
Thursday, December 21st is our School Holiday Sing-Along from 9:15-10. This will be a standing room event since all grade levels participate in the cafeteria. 
 
Also, if you'd like to send in a monetary donation to help our room moms cover the cost of the Christmas party, please do so! Any amount will help! Please send in an envelope labeled "Christmas Party"
 
Thanks for all your help, let me know if you have any questions.
Enjoy these last few shopping days!
