I have requested in the beginning of the year for a 2 pocket folder. Please make sure your child has one. This folder should come to school everyday. Please look in the folder everyday and empty out the folder. Discuss with your child what they did in school today. Please be on the look out for monthly reading logs. Your child should be reading everyday for 20 minutes. October log was already due. If you have not turned it in yet, please do so. The November log is due Dec. 1, 2014. If it is missing, you may write the books on a separate sheet of paper.
If you see any items stapled in your child’s folder, please look over and return if necessary. I recently sent out Parent Teacher Conference reminders and I have not received all confirmations yet.
Also, your child should be coming home with 1-3 take home books a week. They should be able to read these books independently. They should keep all these books in the Ziploc bag provided. This Ziploc bag of books should always remain in their backpacks. This teaches organization as well as responsibility. By the end of the year, your child will have a stack of their own books to make a home library.
