Parent Involvement for the Love of Reading!

Dear Parents,
I would like to try something new in our class this year to encourage and increase the love for reading! I will need your help if you are willing! I would love for you and your student to pick ONE of your favorite books that you read as a family or your child could bring home their favorite from school. I would love for your child to video you in the Seesaw app reading the book aloud. If you would rather not be in the video you could have your child video the pictures in the book as you read. I will then pick a book a week and share it with our class! It is always important for our kids to see others reading and enjoying books! You could make this as exciting as you would like with expression and voices! Your child could also be a part of the read aloud! I will have your child give us a quick introduction of the book with a question to get them all thinking! Thank you in advance for supporting your students! We all look forward to hearing some wonderful stories!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Barlow

Class Newsletter Week 8

We have reading comprehension assessments each Thursday.  On Friday we assess spelling in the morning and math in the afternoon.  We will have a math benchmark on Monday over all of the math skills we have covered so far.  These skills include counting a mixture of coins, solving story problems and choosing the correct operation to solve the problem, addition/ subtraction computation, and number strings.  The problem solving stories include applying the concepts taught with computation, number strings, and counting a mixture of coins.
