3B Weekly Note

Dear 3B Families,

What a wonderful start to the year! The students have started new projects and have even finished a few! They have become comfortable with the classroom and many of our routines. The students are forging new friendships, reuniting with old buddies, and showing great kindness and respect for one another! Lovely!

Each week we will create a Friday Note that will highlight something that happened within our week. Along with this note we will send conversation starters called, Ask Me’s. Please read through the ask me’s with your child and find out all that we have been focusing on throughout the week!

The students have asked great questions about the schedule, general procedures and routines, as well as,” what’s for homework!” The only daily assignment your child has is to read for 30 minutes a night. We will explain the reading log next week. There will also be weekly math work that we will explain to the students next week.

We look forward to meeting with all of you during our ‘Get to Know You Conferences’ (sign up here if you haven’t already http://doodle.com/poll/7wqvg2rm5kpkmcgw) and partnering with you this year. Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns!
