Open House

Welcome to my blog. This is a work in progress but I will be adding lots of buttons that will link you to the important websites in our lives--Reading Street, Everyday Math, Xtra Math, and so forth. I will also keep you up to date on what's happening in our classroom and posting pictures of your adorable kiddos.  So, I hope you get time to check it out and and stay connected with what's happening in our classroom.

Our little class of fifteen will be growing by one this Monday.  We will be welcoming
Elias Kring on Monday.  He is a 2nd grader transferring from Eagle!  Our four boys are so excited to gain another boy!!

Snacks:  Since our special class is first thing in the morning, we have a LONG afternoon. About 2:00, we take a Brain Break.  During this time, we do a quick exercise activity and have a snack.  If you would like to donate snacks to the class, that would be terrific.  We do peanut allergies in our classroom, so be sure the snack meets the healthy guidelines and is safe for our peanut allergy kiddos.  Individually wrapped items are always appreciated but not required.

Open House: Tues., Aug. 20th 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. (from Mrs. Wise)
Next week we will be having our Open House for grade 1-5 (including K/1) on Tuesday, August 20th from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for the classroom teachers to share expectations, review classroom procedures and curriculum with parents. Doors will open at 6:15 and presentations will begin at 6:30. Teachers will be presenting one 1-hour presentation so please plan accordingly to arrive promptly. All teachers will have detailed handouts outlining the information that is being presented. If you have more than one child, you will need to select one presentation to attend. Teachers will remain in their classrooms until 7:45 to answer questions and distribute handouts to those who were unable to attend the presentation. You may also pay book rental that evening. 

I will not be sending home spelling homework from this point on.  Please remember that all spelling tests are on Thursdays-hopefully, they have that schedule down by now.  Students will soon be getting a spelling sheet with all of the word lists for Semester One on it.  This sheet should stay in their OWL binders.  I will add a link to my blog so that you can access these words from it as well.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening.  
~Mrs. Mitchell
