    Grandparents' Day Song-URL- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wfp0zFYdJHc 
    We have our celebration on Friday, Sept. 7th at 9:00AM in the cafeteria.  More info to come!
    Here is a list of the Fry's Sight Words.  We are still concentrating on the first 25 for this first quarter.  We will work through reading and spelling all 100 by the end of the year. 
    Look for Dreambox info coming  home today.  Your child can do this for about 30 minutes a week at home.  Please let them only do it independently.
    Practice RAINBOW words!!!

    Birthdays- Please let me know if your child would like to bring in a snack for their birthday.  As of now, we have 21 students in our class.  We will usually celebrate birthdays the last 30 minutes of the day- 3:00-3:30.
    *****PLEASE NOTE***** We are a nut free classroom.  Please make every effort to ensure that the snacks you bring in to share with the class are nut free.  All food brought in must be store bought/pre-packaged.  No homemade items are allowed per district policy.  Thank you!! 

    Student of the Week-  I will let you know as soon as we start Student of the Week!!
    Every week we will have a new Student of the Week in our class.  I will send home a poster for the child to fill out the Friday before.  They will bring that poster back and share it with the class on Monday.  On Tuesday, they will bring in photos to share.  Wednesday, will be a day your child can bring in their favorite item (book, toy, game, etc.).  Thursday, the class will interview your child, and on Friday, the class will write letters to the Star Student.  If your child would like to bring in a Star Student snack during the week, that would be great-Just Remember- Nut Free!
    I have a list of books that you and your child can check out in the library that will align with their DRA reading level! I have attached 4 lists that go from level 1 DRA up to 3rd grade level reading.  I hope these help.  We will discuss DRA levels at conferences, or you can always call, email, or talk to me about your child's level.
