Check your child's assignment notebook for work to be done. I encourage them to check off work that has been completed and circle any work that needs to be finished. I appreciate parents when they initial the assignment notebooks.
I will talk to students about what to do with accordion folders. They should write the following labels for the different pockets and use the folder each day to take home and bring back papers. Labels should include Take home papers, Homework, Reading, English, Spelling, Math, Social Studies and Science. Students brought home the folder today to organize, but if they forgot please complete by early next week.
Students in my homeroom have Art on day 4. They do need a paint shirt to keep in their locker for projects.
Check student's Assignment notebook each night for what we have done that day and what homework they might have. Circled assignments are unfinished.
I look forward to working with all of my new fourth graders. In our class you will be working hard, making friends, and having fun! My classroom is a No Bully Zone! We will soon become a classroom family that supports and encourages each other. Everyone is a "Wonder" in my room. Also beginning a few lessons in the social program, Strong Kids-focusing on strong emotional and academic kids.
