We are going to begin exploring addition and subtraction facts! To strive for mastery of facts, we will focus on one fact family each week and assess student's mastery every Friday. To start, this Friday we will assess the family: +0. These will NOT be timed. The goal is for your student to scored a 90% or above. An additional note explaining more will be coming home with your student on Monday. Happy Adding!
One of the ways we reinforce responsibility in the classroom is by students showing me they have done reading at home. The best way for me to know this is by an adult filling in their reading log every night with: the book they read and a parent/adult's initials. I check these daily and place stickers to show that I have seen this. Also, students earn a "clip up" in the morning by having this filled in. Please help support this by filling in each night your student reads. Keep in mind that this can be the books I send home in their reading bags OR a book of choice from home. The best way a student can truly enjoy reading is by letting THEM choose what books they would like to read that night for about 20 minutes. Happy Reading!
Daily Readers Wanted
Every Monday-Thursday we have a Daily Reader from the class read to us as we complete our journals. Encourage your student to bring a book from home that they are familiar with that they would like to read to the class. This is a simple, fun way to encourage the love of reading and increase reading fluency.
