Congrats to our Spelling Bee Contestants Eela, Samantha and Valerie who represented our class in the Camarena Spelling Bee last month. An additional shout out to Valerie who placed second and went on to compete against other Kindergarteners from our district. So proud of you all!!
Here is a small collage of some of our 100th day fun!! We counted to 100 by 1s, 10s, and 5s. We also made 100th day necklaces, grouping beads by 10s, counted out 100 pennies to trade for a $1.00 bill, made a snack with 100 items, brought in 100 objects and described them as well as created t-shirts and other 100th day projects just to name a few. We had a blast!!
Thank you for all those who donated to Kid’s Heart Challenge (aka American Heart Assoc.) Our school raised over $17, 400!!! Any additional prizes will be given out after spring break. Thank you again Robo Rockstars!!!
Homework may look a little different this upcoming week. I am working on things to challenge the students, and help prepare them for upcoming District testing (April/May). I will not have a digital copy of the new homework, so I will not be able to post it on the blog as of now. If your child misplaces their packet, please have them ask me (or you may ask me) for a new copy. I usually make extras and keep them on our class door. If your child is sick and does not get their homework on a Friday please note they will get it on Monday or when they return and they may have an additional weekend to complete it (or however many days they were out). The purpose of homework is to review what we have been working on in class and practice those skills. The homework also serves as information to you for what we are covering/working on in class. If you have an additional questions please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you once again for your continued support!!
Thank you for continuing to send me videos of your child reading our poems of the week. The students seem to really enjoy it.
As far as any other emails sent to me please note that I check my emails in the morning before school. I do not check my emails throughout the day, and once I pick up my own children from school, take them to their after school activities, cook dinner and do homework with them, I sometimes am able to check my emails again at night. If you have sent me an email and need a response, please allow 24-48 hours for me to get back to you. Thank you for your support! 🙂
For now I will NOT be using Class Dojo. A couple of weeks ago I received a message from Remind 101 that all Verizon Wireless users would be charged a fee for each text sent and received through Remind 101. After I sent home the Class Dojo information I was sent a retraction from Remind stating that Verizon has decided NOT to charge additional fees. Due to this retraction, I will continue to use Remind 101. Thank you for those who signed up. If this changes I will let you know. Thank you for your support in this matter.
