There is no snow in the forecast for at least the next week. That makes me very happy! I just hope there are no snowprises in March.
It has been a busy week. We finished our science chemistry unit on matter with root beer floats. I think that was the highlight of the week. Another exciting change was that we were able to get back outside for recess. We also handed out new name plates with first and last name. I am sure you saw the old ones come home. Whenever paper books come home please have your child read them to you. Finally, Guided reading is now in full swing. There is more on that below.
My goal is to meet with your child twice a week for a reading group. Students are supposed to keep their books in their folders until we meet. It would take a tremendous amount of time to collect books everyday, so it works best for me to collect the books we have read when we meet to read new book. Do not worry if you see the book in their folder for a few days in a row.
