Today, Mr. Bower and I had a great time at the Patriots game with my family. Carly stayed home with her Grammy. Did you watch the game? Did you see Gronk's touchdown? Gronk! Gronk! Gronk!
This week will be another busy one! On Wednesday, we will work with Mr. Steinberg in the morning with our new classroom iPads! So exciting!
In Reading we will read Animal Park, which is a Photo Essay about animals in nature. We will discuss the comprehension skill of cause and effect while working on the short u sound and final blends.
In Math we will finish up our Unit 2 Math Assessment and then begin Unit 3. The beginning of unit 3 focuses a lot more on number stories, which students seem to really enjoy.
We will have the Book Fair on Thursday from 1-1:45. It is very helpful if you browse the book fair flyer that went home last week and circle the books (or make a list) you would like your child to purchase. Students often feel overwhelmed at the book fair when they have money and are not sure what books to get. I heard we have a great set of volunteers who will be there to assist students, but please try to review the flyer prior to the book fair! Also, please be sure to add the 6.25% sales tax!
Conference notices will be going home this week. Keep an eye out for a yellow notice in your student's folder. Please sign and return the form as soon as possible so I know your time is confirmed or if we have to make a new conference time. Please be aware that conferences are only 10 minutes long. If more time is needed, we will reschedule for a new time after we meet for our conference.
Friday many students forgot their library books at home :( Please have your students get in the practice of putting his/her library book in his/her backpack on Thursday night with the homework packet. Students will not be able to get a new book until Friday.
On Monday, Willett will begin a new series called: The Willett Community Cares. Through this series, the Willett community will host many fundraisers and drives for our community. Our first drive will be a Military Care Package Drive. A list of requested items will be sent home tomorrow! Please check your child's folder! :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful week. I'm sure I will be sending more updates throughout the week!
