****I can’t believe this is the last week of school! The year went by so fast, yet we learned so much!! Your children have worked very hard this year and have grown in so many ways! It has been a pleasure to teach your children and become a part of their lives. They definitely have become a very special part of my life! I will miss each and everyone of them ! I wish you a very Happy Summer and hope you have a relaxing time with your families! Thank you for all your kind words and support throughout the year. It has been a privilege meeting and getting to know you. ****
**** 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. THIS WAY I WILL KNOW YOU ARE AWARE OF THE EXTRA CHARGE THAT MAY BE PLACED ON YOUR ACCOUNT. SOMETIMES THE CAFETERIA MAY SURPRISE US AND GIVE OUT FREE ICE CREAM OR A RICE KRISPIE TREAT.

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 Summer Fun!!! We will be doing a lot of writing this week . Continue to review short vowel sounds and introduce long vowel sounds.
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.

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!!!!! There will be no more Mystery Readers for this year. Thank you to all who have come!!
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.
–All volunteers must have a volunteer form filled out and on file in the office 48 hours before coming into the classroom. This also applies to Mystery Readers.
