Handwriting Books - Please refer to our Communication Sheet for each week’s handwriting pages that need to be completed at home for extra practice. It is key to focus on correct letter formation. Thank you for your assistance!

Reading Log Sheets - In your child’s binder behind the blue goals sheet (back pocket), you will find the September reading log sheet. Students are required to read daily and record their minutes. Our goal is for each child to be read to and/or to read to him/herself for 160 minutes this month.

On October 2, we will collect the September reading logs and record all the minutes that have been read on a class graph. Each month we will set a new classroom reading goal. The new October log will come home on October 2. 

Keep up the wonderful reading!
