Classroom Happenings for November 12th- 16th, 2018
           Note: This Friday, November 16th, will be a paid dress down day. Students can dress down for a $1 donation.
The words that come home in the green composition book are sight words. Students need to be able to read these words without hesitation. Each time the notebook comes home, students should be reading all words, not just the current list of words. The words should be reviewed as many times as necessary, until they are read fluently.
You will also begin to notice some math fact practice worksheets coming home to be completed for homework. The more students’ practice the facts, the more automatic the correct responses will be. It is also a good idea to make flash cards of addition facts with sums up to 20.
Reminder next Wednesday, November 21st, is a half day of school. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 pm.
