August 12 ~ Classroom News

Dear Families,

It was so nice to meet with so many of you for open house. We sent home paperwork for those of you who were unable to make it. We have most of our paperwork turned in, but if we’re missing something from you, we’ll send home a reminder.

This last week, Mrs. Weitnauer came to visit our class. The children learned about her job as our school counselor. Mrs. Weitnauer will be visiting every three weeks. Lesson topics include friendship, conflict resolution, study skills, responsibility, career awareness and safety skills. Please contact (phone (770) 578-7238) if you ever need to discuss your student with her.

The children are learning the routines nicely and are putting effort into their work. Ask them about our class pet and our “mystery egg”. Mrs. Mann will open the class store on Monday. The children are anxious to see how they can spend their tickets.

We’ll have the children take the Prodigy placement test this week and then they can begin to work 10 minutes per night on it at home. Remember the 20 minutes per night of reading! 🙂

Learning focus for the week:

  • Math ~ Rounding and place value
  • Reading ~ Genres and fluency
  • Writing ~ Ideas, developing first personal narrative
  • Language Arts ~ Capitalization
  • Social Studies ~ Economics, spending and saving

Have a nice summer weekend!

Mrs. Pennington & Mrs. Mann
