I hope you all had a wonderful winter break! I’m definitely feeling refreshed and ready for the new year.
Today we started a new Math unit that focuses on the relationship between place value and decimals. During Language Arts we are reading a chapter book called Hound Dog True. This means that there is not any spelling homework for the next two weeks. In writing students will be working on a report about an animal of their choosing. The kids are very excited about this.
This month we have a Star Student Assembly on January 26th at 1:30 p.m.
January 15th is a NO SCHOOL DAY in remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
We just started a new Star Reward Challenge. Students earn a star each day for completing their homework and a star for positive behavior. If students earn 80% of their stars during a given period they get to participate in the star reward. If students meet this goal they will join us on a field trip to Skate World on February 14th. Parents are welcome to join us on this trip. Remember you can check class dojo to see how your child’s behavior is during class time. If a student receives more that 2 dojo deductions during class time they do not receive a behavior star for the day. Homework must be turned in on the due date in order for students to earn a homework star for the day. We are hopeful that all students will be able to participate.
I hope 2018 is off to a great start for you all!
