We are well on our way through the first quarter of school.
I am very proud of our class. We were able to complete our first paragraph writing assignment about a story we read in class. Please come to open house this weekend so you are able to see our Star Writers :)
We have had a couple weeks to become adjusted to the schedule so now we will become accountable for our work and actions. Many students are working very hard in class however some still need to be reminded of what they should be doing. Please remind your child that while we are in class they will need to be listening at all times. Talking to our neighbors is not a good idea. This not only distracts them it also distracts the other students who are on task and ready to learn. Along with transitioning in the classroom between subjects some students are working slowly. It is very important that they keep up during transitioning between subjects. We have very busy days with many subjects. If they fall behind and do not finish an assignment they need to put it aside and move on with the class to the following subject.
Continue to sign your child's planner and use it as a source of communication.
