News for the week of August 27th
 
Reading: Character Traits ~ We have been learning how to describe a character using clues from our reading. Next week we will focus on how those character traits change throughout the story.
Spelling: Next week’s focus will be on long vowel sounds.
Math: We have been reviewing place value and learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10’s and 100’s place. We will review for test on Wednesday, and take our first Common Assessment on Thursday.
Social Studies: We have been learning about the 3 types of Communities. We are looking for pictures and photographs of places in our communities of Mt. Sterling and Jeffersonville before beginning our Great Mail Race. Pictures could include places where people live, work, and play, or they could even be of government buildings and historic places.
 
Parent Corner
Water Bottles: YES! Students may bring water bottles to our classroom! They must be plastic with a lid! As long as they are not using them as toys, I will continue to allow their use!
Agendas: Please sign nightly and make sure your child brings it daily.
Shoes: I know summer time is the time for flip flops, but keep in mind they can be dangerous in our school and on the playground. Tennis shoes or shoes with a heel strap are highly recommended
Absolutely no toys, makeup, silly bands, electronic games/devices, cell phones! They will be confiscated.
 
Parent Night Coming Soon!
We will be hosting a parent night soon to discuss our new Standards Based Grading System for Reading and Math grades! We will send home a notice next week. You WILL want to make plans to attend!
Upcoming Fundraisers: We have several fundraisers coming up this year. Please try to support as much as possible. We are raising money to be able to have an iPad in each classroom.
