    Reading

     

     J Remember to read every night!! J

    Ask questions about the books your child is reading to enforce comprehension.  Ask who, what, why, where, and when questions.  Ask about the setting, the main characters, the problem in the story, how the problem is solved, etc.

     

    Language Arts/Writing

    Please have your child write at home to practice writing and grammar skills.

     

    Math

    Please reinforce the skills we teach in class with your child at home. 

    Please encourage your child to continue studying the multiplication facts.

     

    Science/Social Studies                                   

    Every few weeks we will study a new topic in Science and Social Studies.  Within a four week period, we will be alternating a unit of Science and a unit of Social Studies. 

     
     

    General Information

     
    Weekly folders will go home every Tuesday. Please note:  Graded papers will go home every-other Tuesday, but school related information will go home EVERY Tuesday.   Please review papers, sign the folder, and return folders AND graded papers by Thursday. I will be placing the returned graded papers in portfolios to use for parent/teacher conferences and student-led conferences.  Thank you. 

     

    Students will write homework in their AGENDA daily.  They will also write down important events and information. 

    PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD'S AGENDA NIGHTLY!   This can be a very effective tool for conveying information between school and home. 

     

    Conduct/Discipline: We will be utilizing the BRAD program for discipline, and alongside that program we will use Class Dojo so that you can see how your child is behaving during the school day.  There will be "Dojo Parties" held throughout the school year if your child achieves the assigned goal in Class Dojo!  I will also be providing a conduct card to students for accountability.  This will go home every-other Tuesday along with the graded papers.  
     

    Report Cards are available ELECTRONICALLY every nine weeks and can be viewed on Infinite Campus with your Parent Portal Code.  Please contact the office if you have any trouble viewing the report cards or the progress reports.  They will not be printed.  

     

    Transportation Change - Students must bring in a note to change their transportation. Transportation changes cannot be made by phone or e-mail. If there is no note, they will be sent home their usual way.

     

    Medicine - Students required to take medicine must take it to the office where the nurse will distribute it at the appropriate time.  You must also fill out the Medication Form in the “Back to School” packet.  **PLEASE NOTE**this includes cough drops!!
