**** Please send in your child’s Blue communication folder everyday. Put all notes and lunch money in this folder only. ****
PARENTS PLEASE SEND IN A NOTE IF YOU GIVE YOUR CHILD PERMISSION TO GET AN EXTRA SNACK OR DESSERT WHEN THEY BUY THEIR LUNCH.

HAPPY APRIL BIRTHDAY Hari !
Reminder: Please send in a healthy snack daily for your child. 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 snack and lunch ( if you send it in) so your child know the difference .
Language Arts – It is important to continue reviewing sight words daily to enable your child to read on grade level. Comprehension is also an important part of being able to read on grade level. Ask your child questions about what he/she reads . Please have your child practice writing short descriptive sentences by sounding out words. They should be able to write at least 3 sentences about one topic. By the end of this 4th marking period, your child should know how to read at least 50 sight words to be on grade level.
Focus this week on S Blends continued ( sn, sw, sl )
Have your children go into RAZ Kids ( which has been paid for by the PTA) and practice reading stories and answering comprehension questions once they get to a certain level. I sent home letters with your child’s password the first marking period. If you misplaced this information just let me know.
Our themes in April are: S Blends, L blends, R blends, Plants, Addition, Subtraction, Life cycles of a flower- a butterfly – a frog, Reduce- -Reuse- Recycle, Earth Day, Animal Offspring, Growth Changes

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 class library.
We did not have a Mystery Reader this past week.
