It was a cold, rainy day for the Walk-a-thon this past Friday, but we didn’t let the yucky weather get us down. We had a blast walking around the school and dancing some Zoomba in the multipurpose room. Thank you so much for sending in your donations in support of our school. Prize winners will be announced later this week once all of the donations have been counted. Pictures from the Walk-a-thon have been posted to our google photo stream – just send me an e-mail if you would like me to re-share the link.
This week, we visited RazKids, a fantastic website full of books at your child’s just-right level, on the computers and iPads. Your child has access to this wonderful website at home too! It is a great resource to use for snow days and during days off from school. To access it, just log onto Clever using the name and password located on your child’s blue folder. Click on the RazKids app. My teacher username is: rstadt0. Your child’s password for RazKids is the same password that they use to log in to Clever. Have fun exploring!
October 8 – Homework Packet Due
Thank you so much for helping your child read, practice sight words, and complete their math pages this past week. Remember, new sight words will be sent home when your child moves on to a new level at school. Right now, myself and our first grade parapro, are meeting with students to practice words. Soon, we will have parent and baseball helpers working with our first graders too. Your child will progress through words more quickly when this support begins! :)
