Also please send in a drink for your child if he/ she brought their lunch. *****
***If your child is permitted to have a dessert ( ice cream, cookies, fruit snacks) or chips please send me in a note. These all cost additional money. I do not let my students take anything extra unless I have your approval. ***
Please read all pages of my blog.
Reminder: Please send in a healthy snack daily for your child labeled with name and word: SNACK.
Water bottles are permitted in the classroom. Please make sure the lids are on securely so they do not leak in your child’s backpack. Also please make sure you label their lunch ( if you send it in). Your children are permitted to take their water bottles outside when it is very hot. Please put your child’s name on their water bottle.

We will also focus on identifying, writing and the sound of short vowel – Ee.

CALLING ALL MYSTERY READER ( Fridays from 11:20-11:40 )
I would like to invite any parents, older siblings, grandparents, relatives, or other special people to surprise your child by being a “Mystery Reader” this year in our classroom. Students LOVE having their family, friends, and relatives visit our classroom to share in our learning by reading a favorite story aloud to our class.
Readers are asked to bring a book to read or read a teacher-chosen book from our classroom library.
If you can find a date that works for you, please sign up to be a Mystery Reader on this sign up genius for the 2019-2020 school year once it is set up by our Room Moms!
There will be many open dates to choose from throughout the year.
Remember this is a mystery so please don’t tell your child you are coming!! The children love to be surprised!
Special thanks to Pranavi’s mom who was our Mystery Reader!
