Thursday was also International Dot Day - a day dedicated to the book The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. This is a SUPER cute book about a girl who is inspired by a teacher. The girl goes on to inspire another child. It has a great lesson about making your mark on the world. We celebrated by decorating our own dot and bringing them to life through an amazing app called Quiver.
KRBK / FOX 5 will be in our classroom next TUESDAY! I am not sure when the piece will air but I will do my best to keep you informed.
Your child should have brought home a reading log in their backpack today! When your child reads 10 books please have them return the completed log with your signature. I would love to see every child return at least one log per month! Once a month, your child can earn a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut for brining back a completed log.
Also, when your child reaches 200 books total, I will buy them pizza for lunch!
Your child will be responsible for getting a new log when they turn one in BUT if you do not have a log to write it on—it is completely okay! You can email me the books, write them on any paper—I have even had logs turned in written on napkins before! I am not picky! The only thing I ask is that it is in increments of 10.
The important part is that they are reading (or listening) to books!
***If you are reading a chapter book, please count each chapter as a separate book on the log.
Your child is also bringing home a packet of math pages. These are NOT required homework!!! It is just for their own independent practice.
Friday, September 30th I will give a DOUBLES addition timed math test. If your child scores a 90% or higher on the timed test they will receive DoubleMint gum! They will have 2 minutes to complete the 16 problem assessment.
SCHOOL PICTURE DAY
Don’t forget that school picture day is on September 27!!! Watch for order information to come home soon.
