“Star Student of the Week” -Vimal was our “Star Student” this past week . He brought in a beautiful poster that he worked on very hard with her family! It was fun getting to learn about his family and his special interests.
Please help your child to fill out and color the poster when it is their turn. You can also send in photographs to hang on the poster . A letter will accompany the poster explaining what is required. Please send this completed poster in the following Monday so your child can share it with the class. I will display it in our classroom and return it home on Friday.
CALLING ALL MYSTERY READERS! PLEASE sign up to come in and read a story to the class. All your children are hoping you will come in!!!!!
Joanna set up the Sign up Genius for this, please sign up!!
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 2018-2019 school year!
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 Jerimai’s mom for being our Mystery Reader!!!!.
