Greetings room 111! I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying this beautiful day! OH MY GOODNESS it is already MAY! The image below is what Mrs. Ross feels like because I love your children so much and I DON”T want to let them leave me for the first grade next year! Time is going by so fast and I am SOOOOOO proud of all we have accomplished this year!
Mrs. Ross’s Sad Face
Again, this week I am reminding you to please continue to READ with your kiddos every night to prepare them for the upcoming NWEA testing and our final year end assessments! You can read from reading packs nightly, but also from the RazKids website! Thank you in advance for all your help this spring to stay focused as the weeks get hotter and the kids get more and more ready for summer break! Tuesday is our first test and it will be Math. You can help prepare your child this weekend once more by counting objects, adding and subtracting, posing mock story problems, identifying numbers, comparing greater than and less than amounts, and simple measurement and position of objects. No pressure, just make sure that your child takes it seriously and gets a GOOD night sleep Monday night and they eat a hearty breakfast Tuesday morning. Good luck to us all!
