Since I have finally received forms from all students regarding if I can post pictures of them or not, I can now post a few class pictures of what we've been doing since school started! They will be posted regularly now that I'm able.
It feels so crazy we are already in our fourth week of school! I want to post our weekly special schedule for you, as well as our spelling words this week. Again, sorry for the lack of posts, things are finally starting to die down and you will soon have regular posts to see!
Spelling List (Test Friday)
You should have received a months worth of reading logs in your students Tiger Folder last week. Please remember reading 15 minutes is homework every night and needs to be recorded and turned in the following Monday.
Well, we all survived the first week of school and are well on our way to the completion of the second! We are still working on learning our rules so our class runs more smoothly and we don't have students talking without raising their hand every minute. We are also working very hard to keep everyone on task. I keep reminding the class that they come here to learn, as I do to teach, and that the classroom is not the place to be silly and play. I'm hoping that soon our class will catch it's rhythm and I won't be having to correct behavior all day. I have no doubt that we will have a well oiled machine of a class in no time!
Sorry for the delay in posts, I have been swamped with work and trying to get everything done in the classroom, so it's been pretty hectic and crazy lately especially staying up at school till after 8:00 pm at night. However, I do plan to blog daily, or as frequent as I can/remember, when everything starts to calm down. I am also still waiting on some permission papers to post pictures of some students as well so you will soon see the actually pictures of our day and what we are working on.
Please remember Grandparent's day lunch is tomorrow (Friday) and the slips as well as money should have already been turned in for this. Picture day will be the 13th and forms for this have also gone out. So, if you are wanting pictures please return the form and money as soon as possible. Also a reminder about snack: snack time is at 2:00 pm everyday and your child is allowed to bring a snack to have however please make it a healthy snack as well as remind them to put their name on it so we don't have an instance of someones snack getting eaten again.
If you need to reach me the best way to do so is by email since I am more frequent to check my email than voice mails. I have absolutely loved getting to know each of your children these first two weeks and look forward to the rest of our year!
SPELLING TEST IS TOMORROW (FRIDAY)
