We had readers in for March is Reading month (DHS and Bryant) and the Rain Forest assembly. Mr. Thorpe, a member of the Dearborn School Board, also read to our class on Wednesday. Report cards are coming home today. Have a great weekend.
The students have worked hard to create a classroom fantasy book. They are almost done with their stories and illustrations. On Monday I sent home a form if you wanted to buy a copy of the book. I have only received 3 forms back. Even if you don’t want the book I need you to check no and sign the form. This is the only way we can print your child’s story in our book. Please turn the slips in by Monday so that we can have our book printed.

Please make sure your child brings a lunch with a drink (not glass). It works well if they bring it in a disposable bag, so they don’t hae to carry their lunch bag with them.
The students are sharing their poems that they memorized with the class. Make sure they practice and use a clear, strong voice.
The students have a poem that they need to memorize. They picked out their poem over a week ago. Their presentation to the class will be on Friday, March 9. For their grade they need to make sure they use a loud, clear voice and use expression. Some students wanted to bring in props or wear an outfit to go with their poem. That is not necessary but they are welcome to do that if they want to. The grade is based on the vocal presentation.

“Our favorite instrument was the violin,” stated Ellie and Fatme.
The students have been told that they are welcome to bring in cards and a treat, if they want to, for Valentine’s Day. We will make a bag so that each student can put their goodies in something. Our class will also play BINGO, have a donut, and fruit as a treat. Most of the students have their cards ready but just in case they don’t – we have 25 students. They do not need to put individual names on them. It usually goes faster if they don’t write out all the names, but just in case here is the list.
