Spring Reading!

Hooray! Spring is here! 

Whether families are headed to the beach or having a staycation, it’s a great time to practice using those reading accommodation tools with real-life reading opportunities. Using reading tools such as text-to-speech during fun, low stress, literacy activities help to build independence and encourage practice.

Take advantage of Spring break! Many of our struggling readers do not take the initiative to read for their own purpose and pleasure. Help them learn the power of connecting to the world that exists outside the classroom.

Our school has sent home a Spring Break reading log to encourage reading, please return it to school after Spring Break!

Examples:

Hassan’s Timeline

Date:   When the event occurred.

Caption:   Write a sentence about the picture.

You may use poster board or construction paper to make your timeline.
We encourage you to enjoy looking through pictures and make the timeline together.  This is supposed to be a “family” project. If for some reason you do not have a picture of an important event you want to write about, draw it.  Make the most of this learning experience together, but most of all have fun!

Pennies for Patients Piggy Bank

Dear Families,

On Friday March 1st, I sent home the ‘Pennies for Patients’ information. This is a fundraiser for Cancer Research through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. With the information came a small paper Piggy Bank that allows your student to collect money throughout the month of March. I am asking that your student bring their Piggy Bank on Fridays to add to the classroom’s larger piggy Bank…..so every Friday they are to bring their small to add to our large piggy bank.  

Thank you for your support!

Daily Snack Reminder

Just a friendly reminder

Please remember that we eat snack each day around 10:00.  Your child must bring something healthy and nutritious from home.  Your child may only bring ONE snack!

Great Examples: 

Fruit, vegetables, crackers, pretzels, granola bar, yogurt, goldfish

We will send home:

Candy, chips, cookies, cereal bars dipped in chocolate

Donations of nonperishable foods are always welcome, because often children forget to pack a snack.

Thanks,

Ms. Fadhl
