Thank you!

  • Thank you for such a great turn out at our Open House.  We  had 22 families sign up for conferences!!  Do not worry if you did not there is still space.  Just let me know and I will share with you my openings and we can set up a day and time.  I will also be sending out reminders closer to the date.

 

  • A quick note from the office:  all and any checks written to the school have to be made out to Dearborn Public Schools and not Lindbergh School.

 

  • Please check to ensure your background check is still good.  They are good for 3 years and this is the year they begin to expire.  It takes a few weeks for the process to be completed.  Depending how many there are it could take longer.  If you take care of this ASAP it will be helpful when field trip(s) arise.  You will NOT be able to attend if you do not have your background check completed for safety reasons.  Thank you for your understanding.

 

  • Thank you to all of you who purchased things for our classroom, extra supplies, Kleenex, books for our class library.

 

Spelling – Last week we did a practice each day of what our spelling lessons would look like.  We will continue this week with words that have long and short i.  Next week I will be introducing content area words.  Please pay attention to the spelling section of your child’s planner, you will find their words there.

Math – We are exploring numbers in Math.  We will eventually move into a Math workshop approach where students will move from one activity to another.

CAFE/Daily 5 – We talked about Read to Self, Work on Writing and Word Work

Reading –We talked about the three ways to read a book, Good Fit books and worked on building stamina during read to self.

We will continue to build stamina and add another Daily 5 strategy to our day.

Social Studies  – We will begin this week with Learning about the Geography of Michigan

Science – Force and Motion is our first unit.  We will also begin that this week

Spelling- We are reviewing long and short /i/ words.

As well as listening to each child read this week, we will begin taking the NWEA.

Open House this Thursday 6:-7:30!  We will have conference sign up in the room so be sure to come!  Book Fair will be going on then as well!

We will be visiting the Book Fair Thursday at 1:00 so your child will be coming home with a list of books they are interested in.  Books can also be purchased during school.

Please check your child’s planner nightly!

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at Open House!
