We only need FIVE more days of 96% or above attendance to earn our class dance party!! Let's keep the stellar attendance going this week!!
School starts at 8:00 AM and ends at 3:00 PM.
Some students are arriving at school between 8:05 and 8:15 - you must be on time at 8:00 for your child to be entered in the Attendance Challenge raffle on Friday.
We will continue literacy stations, and will start middle of year reading benchmark testing. I will test about half of the class before winter break, and the other half of the class after we return from break in January.
When your child is tested, you will receive a sheet explaining what their reading level is as well as different strategies you can work on at home to support your child in literacy.
In literacy this week, we will read articles about two different winter holidays: Christmas and Las Posadas. We will discuss the main idea of the texts using details, and answer comprehension questions using information from the text.
Spelling/Phonics: s blends. Test during the week of 12/18.
Sight Words: Words 71-80. Test during the week of 12/18.
