Weekly Update August 10th

As promised last night, here is the Weekly Update for next week.  I figured out my error with the email addresses.  I had added them in, but not to my class group.  Everyone should now be receiving this email.  We really enjoyed seeing everyone last night for Open House.  I did want to clarify just a couple of things that I thought about after the meeting.


Morning Work:

          I have written a Donors Choose project to get different morning work activities for students to do in the morning instead of being stressed about getting morning work done in the mornings.  We will begin this next week with the materials I have, and once the project is funded we will have even more for the students to do.  The stations will be a building/creation station where they can build with legos, duplos, pattern blocks; a Math fluency station where they will be on Moby Max practicing Math facts, a Brain Games activity where students will work either by themselves or with a group to play games that involve strategic thinking, and a Vocabulary/Reading station.  I am hoping this will relieve some stress of getting to school and having to complete work right away.  With this being said, once Reading Plus and Lexia is set up for students there will be a Breakfast Club in the Computer Lab for students to go to and get in time in the mornings.  It would be helpful for them to get there at 7:20 in order to get in enough time.  Mr. Castle is still getting this together and information will be coming home soon.


Weekly Update – I also forgot to mention that Homework in Math will be assigned on Fridays.  Students can get a head start on the weekend if they would like.  


T-shirt money and orders are due back by Friday, August 17th.  Adults may order one too!
