It is a new year and a new trimester!
Did you sign your child's Daily Sheet?
January 20 - 24
Your child completed the winter Aimsweb assessment in reading and math. Everyone worked really hard and it showed. Their individual scores went up which means they are learning the skills necessary to move onto third grade. I am so excited how well they are doing. If you would like to see the growth, please make an appointment to come visit me.
In Math, we are working on our new chapter in adding and subtracting numbers with 3 digits using decomposing and expanded form. We are also beginning a unit on non-fiction writing which will help in other areas of learning.
We will beginning our new Science Unit of Pebbles and Sand and the Social Studies Unit on Geography.
Thank you for visiting my website. I have established it keep you updated with the happenings within the classroom and day to day activities. Our connection, I believe will enhance your child's learning experience. If you need to make an appointment to see me, or want me to be informed of a matter, you may write a note on the weekly planner sheet, write a note brought to school by your child, or e-mail me at email@example.com
The time now is getting your child prepared for third grade! These next few months are going to go by very fast!
PAWS: Be Prepared, Always respectful, Working hard and Being Safe
It is so important that students treat each other with Respect, Kindness, Honesty, and Patience while working with each other. It is NOT acceptable to be mean to others with words or actions. It will not be tolerated.
Your child should always be prepared for school everyday. Their backpack should have a morning snack, a lunch, a waterbottle, a light sweater or jacket and their take home folder with homework and a signed planner sheet!
Your child should be showing friendship through their every day activities here at school and at home. We all approach work differently, approach activities differently and complete work at different rates. Working together helps your child to understand that everyone is unique, special, and deserves respect.
That is why I reward with smiles on a room chart when a student is caught making a good choice. Plus they will be given PAWS bucks as well. A smile or a PAWS buck is given for being prepared for class, working quietly, trying their best, helping others, cleaning up, showing respect, being safe and many other ways.
Every day your child comes home with a 1, 2, or 3 on their Daily Sheet. This reflects their school behavior, determination to work hard, their ability to focus on a task, and ability to work on a team with classmates. Getting a 3 needs to be someone that is determned to maintain good behavior and continue focused work habits for most of the day.
Remember : This is 2nd trimester, and expectations have increased. At this point in the year listening skills, calling out, and staying on task should be really good. Completing homework at home or in school should not be an issue. Some may need to be reminded more than others. There will always be an explanation to let you know what your child's day was like.
If at any time you have questions, PLEASE, get in touch with me through a note or my email.
The following misdeameanor behaviors we are trying to work on are: Calling out, sitting in our chair inappropriately, trying not to talk while someone is already talking, being silly when the time is to focus on work, handing in homework, listening to when directions need to be followed and finally, being mean to anyone.
When a child is caught being good and doing the right behavior, they are rewarded with a smile face or a PAWS dollar. Top 3 children at the end of the week with the most smiles will get a prize. There will also be stickers, prizes and certificates for PAWS bucks.
Thank you for all your help. Thank you for caring. Thank you for all you do as a parent.
This is my dog Bella.
Thank you for coming to the site and sharing it with your child. I hope it will become a helpful tool.
Happy Birthday to
