Summer Check-In, Shout Outs, & Updates

Dear Lizard Families,

I miss you all very much, and hope that you are having a wonderful summer! Please remember that READING is so important to do over the summer! We worked so hard to become voracious readers this year, and I hope that continues in 2nd grade. If you have trouble logging in to Raz-Kids over the summer, please do not hesitate to contact me. I posted a special incentive from Barnes & Noble in the post below.

*A big shout out to Bree, Bryce, Jake, Grace, & Isabella for reading Raz-Kids books and taking the quizzes. WAY TO GO!

*Congratulations to Jackson (41,840 stars) and Isabella (32,840 stars) for being the top star collectors in Raz-Kids!

*Please remember that you can turn in your Orton-Gillingham Summer Packet for a prize on Eagle Day! (There are some transformations in the packet too. I can’t wait to see what you create!)

I look forward to keeping in touch with you all for years to come. Please stop by and see me anytime.

Spring is the season of growth, and the perfect time to celebrate how far your child has come as a reader! You can help your child continue to blossom as a reader by encouraging them to choose their own books! The lizards LOVE books! There are some great titles for summer reading, and second grade!
