The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time. I am taking this opportunity to tell you what to expect your child to be doing on a weekly basis in my class. Each day the student is given individual assignments which correlate with concepts taught the previous day. These assignments help me to determine if they have mastered the concepts. If the assignments are not completed during the day, then the student must complete the assignments at home and bring them back to school.
Every Friday there will be a Spelling Test and a Reading Test. I ask that you practice the spelling words every night and listen to them read the assigned story. Helping your child at home will build confidence in their abilities in the areas they practice.
Your child will be bringing their wet swimsuit home. They will need to bring their suit and towel in a plastic bag.
If we keep the lines of communication open, this will be an enjoyable and productive year for your child. I consider it an honor to have your child in my class and I am looking forward to teaching your child.
