Beginning of School

The first few weeks of school have been quick, full and fun!  We have completed baseline assessments, NWEA and begun learning how to work during Daily 5.  

The children are adapting well to all of the changes we have had lately. 

I will be trying to post to this blog once a week. I will also put any important information on here as it becomes available.  

We will continue working on Narrative writing, writing our names, numbers 0-10, counting to 25, learning letters, working in strategy groups, identifying parts of a story, asking and answering questions, sight words,pushes and pulls and lessons on how to get along with others. We will also finish our classroom mission statement and start discussing the 7 habits of our Leader In Me program. 

Snow School Field Day!

A note from Ms. Zechar and Mr. Moyer:

Hello, Snow School Community!!!!

Field Day 2017 is Friday, June 9.  We still have room available for volunteers if you have some time to help out.  The link to Sign Up Genius is http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4bacad22a7f94-snow1

Kindergarten through second grade, and MOCI students, will enjoy the morning games, 9 am-11 am.  Third through fifth grade students will have an afternoon Field Day, 1 pm-3 pm.  Everyone will have their normal lunch time.

Field Day t-shirts are due in Thursday– close!!, due to the new computerized printing system at the company we used.  If you ordered a shirt and it doesn’t come home Thursday, students will get them Friday morning and can change into them at school.  If shirts weren’t ordered students can wear any Snow Spirit Wear or any school appropriate shirt.

 We are asking everyone to bring a water bottle, names on them please, which can be refilled at our rest station.  Students are welcome to bring a snack and fruit will be available at the water/rest station.

Questions? Please email or call Mr. Moyer, moyerm@dearbornschools.org, or Ms. Zechar, zecharj@dearbornschools.org. Keep positive thoughts for great weather!

Take Home Reading Book Bags

Good Afternoon!

I did not send book bags home with the class today.  We are trying to get them all collected for the end of the year.  We have several students that have not brought theirs back in quite a long time!  These books are used every year for every classroom so it is important that we get them back.  If your child hasn’t returned their book bags with their books please start trying to locate them.  Looking for them might lead to an awesome adventure under the bed or in the closet…….:)

Have a great afternoon!

ABC Countdown Update

Good Morning!  I just have a quick update for ABC Countdown.  Wednesday is “N” day for No homework!  I will give a homework packet but it will be minimal because of our short week and for no homework day.  Thursday is “O” for Off with your shoes!  We will take our shoes off for the last hour of the day.  Friday is Pajama day but we are not participating in pajama day because we are going to the zoo.  Please dress your child for the zoo, as of right now, we are expecting a high of 77 degrees and spotty thunderstorms.  Thank You!!

Kindergarten Picnic

Hello! Our kindergarten picnic will be on Tuesday, June 13th from 12:45-2:15. The picnic is held on the kindergarten playground.  The students will not eat lunch in the cafeteria on this day, we will all enjoy lunch together outside.  All are welcome, so please feel free to bring siblings, grandparents, etc.  I have included the link below to sign-up for food if you are interested in doing so.  Please bring blankets, camping chairs, outdoor games, or anything else you feel would be a good addition to our picnic.  Food items can be brought in the morning or when you arrive. If you are willing and able to come a little early to help set-up, please let me know 🙂

This year, we are combining our picnic with the Teachers vs. 5th Grade Kickball Game, which will begin at 2:30 on the field that faces Houston Street. You are all welcome to attend the kickball game as well!  Thanks again for ALL you do!!
