Week of 5-13-19
I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying this lovely weather we’re having… FINALLY spring time weather. I want to thank you all for the lovely teacher appreciation gifts last week! I love each and every one. I am so grateful that I am your child’s teacher! And another thank you for all the wonderful mothers that came for our Muffins for Moms event. I hope you all had a great time. Also, I have the placemats to send home (I had lamination issues so a few had to be re-laminated. Important Dates this week:
*Don’t Forget to follow the ABC countdown sheet for this week!

Homework: As we near the end of module 4, we will send home packets until there are no more left in module 4. However, your child will receive a new math game every week to help with subtraction and addition fluency!

Library check out: This week on Tuesday, we had our final library check out. Please make sure the library book is in your child’s backpack Monday night. Any missing books will have a library fine that will need to be paid (which depends on the book).
Reading Packs: Make sure your child is spending about 10-15 minutes reading at night on the books, letters/words you find in the reading packs. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night! I’m starting to collect books. Please make sure your child has all of their books in their book bags. Any missing books and/or book bag will be a cost of $5 each.
