A few reminders! :)
HarvestFest is this Saturday from 12-4pm here at Willett! A note will be going home this week!
Homework packets went home yesterday. Students should return these on Friday.
Many students are still forgetting to bring a snack in. School does not provide snacks for students. Please be sure to send a snack in daily with your child.
Below is the yellow note that came home in folders yesterday. Please be sure to read it over and send the bottom portion back asap.
Be sure to bookmark our classroom website! :)
Have a great week,
Hello Families of Room 101,
It has been a wonderful week and a half back in Room 101! The students have adjusted well from the transition and we are getting into our new routines for the year. I wanted to send a quick note home about what students (and you) can expect during our weeks for the remainder of the year.
- Our classroom website is: http://mrsbowergrade1.weebly.com/ Please check it frequently for updates. You can view it on your Smartphone, tablet, or computer!
- Each Monday, students will receive their homework packet. Should Monday be a holiday (or snow day) the homework packet will come home on the next school day. Once every 6 weeks, students will not have a homework packet- they may just have a reading log and a math sheet. These are considered our “off” weeks from Reading Street. These will be posted on the website so parents are aware.
- Homework packets are due back the last day of that school week… typically Friday. However, if there is no school on the Friday, homework is due Thursday.
- Mondays we have our Spelling Pre-Test. This is for the students. It informs them what words they can already spell, and what words to work on during the week.
- Fridays are our ELA assessment days. Students will have a Spelling Test, a quick test on our story of the week (it has fill in the sentences using our high frequency words and then a few comprehension questions). Students will also do quick fluency checks with me (typically a minute long, one on one). These assessments are all very quick. The assessments help me know what students are understanding and what I need to review a bit more (either in small group or whole group).
- Math assessments are not as “routine” as ELA assessments. We have a math assessment at the end of each unit. I will be sure to post on our class website when there is an upcoming math assessment. J
- The best place to find updated information is our classroom website. I update that regularly as I am trying to “go green!”
- During Curriculum Night there was a sign up for the classroom newsletter… however, those papers were not saved and turned in to me when I returned to work…. That includes the paperwork where parents indicated the best time for conferences. Ahhh! Please see the form attached and return it to me as soon as you can. J
