Classroom Happenings for May 21st – 25th, 2018
Note: I will be completing all final assessments this week. Some of my students have not yet met the end-of-year goal for reading and math fact fluency so I will continue to work with them this week. Please continue to practice reading and math fact fluency at home this week. The goal for reading is 60 words read per minute. The goal for math is approximately 45 addition math facts within a two-minute time period. If you would like to know where your child stands, please send me a Dojo message or email me.
Later this week, I will be sending home our sight word list from first grade. These are the high-frequency/sight words that we have learned. Any circled words are words that your child is still struggling with. It is also a good idea to review ALL of these words periodically over summer break as they will be expected to automatically know them (no sounding out) in 2nd grade. Any questions, please let me know.
Carnival will be held this Friday, May 25th. Please dress your child in Gym clothes with socks and sneakers. It is looking like the weather is going to be sunny and warm! Please apply sunscreen to your child in the morning before sending him/her to school. If you wish, you can pack the sunscreen for reapplication after lunch. The only lunch being offered on Carnival day is a Hot Dog. Please keep this in mind when deciding to have your child pack or buy a lunch.
