You may have noticed that I collected your student's Reading Bag before break. This has been due to DRAs (Developmental Reading Assessment) I have been doing individually with students. I will be finishing up this week in order to give you this information on report cards, so NEXT week we should be back to normal and bags will be sent home again :) . Continue having your child read Good Fit books to you. Raz-Kids(let me know if you need a login reminder) and Epic(email was sent this weekend if interested) are great options in addition to the Library and books at home.
Starting this Friday, EVERY Friday will be Flashlight Friday! Yes, we will be using flashlights throughout the day every Friday! We will have the lights turned down to get cozy during reading, writing, and math while using a flashlight:) I invite students to bring in flashlights to school on Friday morning and they will come home with your student every Friday as well. Please make sure to label your student's flashlight so they get home safely. (they may keep these in their backpack but they may NOT keep them in the classroom).
We are still in need of healthy, individually packaged, NUT FREE snacks for the classroom. These are helpful when students forget to bring one for the morning. Some great examples are: raisins, fruit snacks, pretzels, crackers etc.
A friendly reminder that students should bring one healthy snack for the morning and, if you want, an afternoon snack they can eat before dismissal. Thank you in advance!
The Box Top contest continues monthly! For every 5 Box Tops turned in students will be given 1 entry into a monthly drawing, held the 25th of every month. Winner will receive a Coyote Den Coupon (Baggies must be clearly marked with Child’s name and teachers
name to be entered into the drawing). Keep sending in to be the GRAND PRIZE classroom which will happen in April!
Happy (belated) *Half* Birthday to Spencer on December 25th!
Happy Birthday to Colbie on December 10th!
