Conferences are coming! 1st quarter conferences are scheduled for Thursday, November 9th. I will be sending out a sign-up genius this week.
Your student is writing to you every Friday in their Learning Wheel Journals. They love when you write back. If you haven't yet, please try and take a few moments each week to write back to them!
Please work with your student to ensure that they are secure in their addition and subtraction facts to 20. Fact fluency for addition and subtraction is important as we move onto multiplication and division.
As always, please reach out if you have questions about anything!!
We are now in the full swing of homework. Please look for your child to have nightly math homework. This is an extension of that days lesson. The students will not have any new material as homework. Occasionally, if we did not have a full math lesson students may bring home math fact practice or practice on previously learned skills. If you questions about math homework please let me know!
Spelling homework is a bit different. Spelling is aligned with our reading program that runs typically 6-7 days. Your child will have a spelling pretest and based on the pretest score, they will be placed on the most appropriate list. This list will come home in their blue home-school folder. There will always be the test date in the upper right hand corner. This date also indicates the date that spelling homework is due. While spelling homework should be a nightly activity, your child will need to manage the 4 required activities and the due date.
My name is Mrs. Harrington and I am so excited to be your
teacher for this year! I can’t wait for the year to start!
We will be doing so many fun things year this year, all while
learning a lot. We will immigrate to America, make a simple machine, learn
cursive, read a ton of stories and work on our multiplication facts!
I hope that you have been having a fabulous summer! I know I
have! My husband, kids and I have gone to the beach, went camping with family,
and spent a relaxing week at the lake in Maine! I can’t wait to share my summer
with you and hope that you will share some of your summer activities with me!
I would love to meet you on Friday, August 25th between
1:30-2:30 at our “Meet Your Teacher” open house, but if you can’t make it, I
will see you on the first day of school.

I want to thank of all of you who took time out of your schedule to come in for a conference. I love to be able to chat about your student with you and share information, especially as we head toward the end of the year. If you have not had a conference, there is still time! Send me an email and we can find a time to chat, in person or on the phone. Your support is appreciated!
Don't forget to send in your Legoland field trip permission slip and money. Please reach out if you need a scholarship! Thank you to those that have offered to volunteer. The response has been overwhelming! I will be in touch with you once I know how many volunteers we have, we are limited. So please stay tuned!
Please send back your report card envelope! The report card is yours to keep.
The students have been working hard to complete their Smarter Balanced testing. We are halfway there. We have completed the English/Language Arts section and will begin the math section tomorrow. We will resume nightly homework shortly after we return from vacation.
