The Week Ahead:

Library books are due on Monday.
We are going to Fog Willow Farm on Tuesday.
The Jog-A-Thon is on Wednesday. Wear tennis shoes for running! Please send in your pledges this week. The money will be used to purchase new PE equipment. FYI: Our turn to run will take place between 9:30 AM- 10:00 AM. Parent helpers are needed.
Homework and Folders are due on Thursday.
Minimum Day is on Friday. (All Kindergartners come for the morning session. Our schedule does not change.) We will spend part of the day with our 4th/5th grade buddies working on a special project.

Helpers Needed

Hello Kindergarten Families,
Please let me know if you would be willing to take a project home with you. I am in need of someone to tear out the math homework pages for each chapter and staple them together for our monthly homework.
I also would love to have classroom helpers join us for small group instruction time, (usually 8:30 to 9:30 and 10:15 to 11:00) It’s not scary at all! I bet you will have a grand time. Let me know which day of the week works for you.

Reading Counts!

SRCThe following is an incomplete list of book titles that we discovered at storyline online.net that have a Reading Counts quiz.  Students can read these books on their own or listen to them on storylineonline.net and then take the quiz here at school.  It has been a challenge to find a way to get everyone some computer time to take the quizzes.  So it is no problem to stay after school in our class or the computer lab to take a quiz.  Just let me know and plan to stay with your student.  It only takes a few minutes to do a quiz.

A Bad Case of Stripes           Harry the Dirty Dog          Rainbow Fish          I Need My Monster          Guji Guji          Brave Irene          Sophie’s Masterpiece          Library Lion          Stellaluna          Chester’s Way          Sebastian’s Roller Skates          White Socks Only          Enemy Pie          Somebody Likes You, Mr. Hatch          The Night I Followed the Dog          Knots on a Counting Rope          Thank You, Mr. Falker

Yesterday our class had 1,286 points.  Today we have 1, 361 points.  How many points did we earn during our computer lab time?  Figure it out and bring your answer to school tomorrow.  There will be a small prize for every student that gets it correct.  No help allowed, please!

Only Eight Weeks Left!

Oh my goodness!  We checked the calendar today and realized that we only have eight more weeks of second grade.  So we looked at our progress notes and each student wrote a goal they hope to achieve.  As you look over their progress note and goal,  I hope you take a few minutes and help your child list actions that will lead them to their goal.  For example, many students set a goal to reach 100 points in Scholastic Reading Counts.  In order to succeed, they will need to be reading extensively outside of class and discussing the characters and events of each story with someone at home before taking a quiz at school. They will also have to be diligent in using their time wisely at school so they can frequently use the classroom computer to take quizzes. You can also arrange time to take quizzes right after school in our classroom or in the computer lab.
