Star of the Week for December 10th

December Hai

A couple of times a month we will have a Star of the Week student in our classroom. This entitles the student to be the line-leader, to lead the morning calendar routine, to share/tell all about him/herself by filling in a poster. This will come home about a week or so before they are the star. A letter will also be included with the poster explaining all the special things the student will have an opportunity to do.


Weekly News

If you have not done so yet, please send back the November Reading Log. The December Reading Log was sent home last week.

Nap/Quiet Time:

We are phasing out nap/quiet time. We will use this time for math and/or writing.

Please practice these words every day, both reading them and spelling them:

Scholastic Book Orders:

The December book flyer went home in yesterday’s folder. Orders are due by Dec. 10th by 4:00pm. The reason it is so early is so that you will receive the books before Christmas vacation. If you would like to place an order, the easiest way to do so is online. Use code RGVYW. If you would rather fill in your order using the flyer, please send it back to school with your child with a check or cash for the total.

Books make GREAT Christmas Gifts!!!!

Thank you!

Books:

“My Prayer Book”: Please do not throw these away! I told the children to keep these on the refrigerator or their nightstand to practice and say the prayers daily.

“My_____Book”: When you see these paper books come home, please have your child read then to you each night. They should put their finger under each word as they say it. Then you can ask them how to spell the sight words with you.
