Please make a new ziploc bag marked with your child's name and Reader 1.3. Please send your child to school with an index card for each of this weeks words to know on Monday. The children's new Spelling assignments are available on Spelling City.  Beginning next week, we will have a Spelling Test each Friday unless otherwise noted. 

    Spelling homework is commpleted on the Spelling City website. A letter was sent home with your child's login information. We will not be having Spelling tests at this time. We wuld just like the children to become accustomed to the Spelling City Website and having to complete Spelling Homework each week, as well of course learn the correct Spelling of the weekly words. Each week there will be 4 or more assigned activities on the Spelling City Website to help your child leaan to  Spell the weekly words. Feel free to do any additional activities to help your child learn the weekly words.
    It is important to view the school homepage and our class webpage daily, as new information will be posted frequntly.

    Please be sure your child knows how they are getting home from school each day. If there is a change in your child's normal plan,  please send a note in their Red folder indicating how they will be arriving home.
    Each day we will havee afternoon snack, please send a small healthy snack and water for your child each day. You may also send your child with a refillable water bottle that they will be able to keep at their desk.If your child is bringing lunch from home, please be sure to pack their lunch and snack separately. 

    Please be sure that anything you send to school is clearly labeled with your child's name, particularly their School sweatshirts and sweaters. The children often take them off during Gym or recess and if they are not labeled we have no way of knowing which is theirs. 

    Each Friday the children will brung home their pencil cases to sharpen their pencils for the upcoming week, please hekp them to sharpen them and return to school on Mondays. The children should always have 12 sharpened pencils in their case. Thank you !

    Math - We will continue to explore the topics pf Addition and Subtraction. It would be beneficial to your child if they become fluent with their addition facts with a special focus on Double Facts. Flashcards are a great way and there are virtual Flashcards online on the Factmonster website.
