Must be May

Thank you so much to all of our parents for an amazing Teacher Appreciation Week.   You really are very special!  I hope all of you are getting ready for the Book Fair, Related Arts night and FIELD DAY next week.

Get ready for a fun month.

Study Island & Reading Eggs

The third, fourth and fifth graders will begin their final round of Study Island tests next week.  The tests will let the teachers know how far they’ve come since the beginning of the year and what they still need to work on to get ready for TCAP testing.

Your kindergarteners and first and second graders are working hard on our Reading Eggs program.  This program tests them to find their level and then gives them quizzes and games to help them become better readers.

I really hope your children are enjoying computer lab this year.  I love working with them and watching them grow.

Go Noodle… Go Noodle…

Parents,

This year, the kindergarteners and first graders have been using GoNoodle – a free website that helps us stay active and have fun as a class. GoNoodle’s short, easy-to-follow videos get kids running, dancing, stretching, and practicing emotional awareness at school.

Kids can enjoy the same GoNoodle videos at home when you create a free account in their iOS app or at GoNoodle.com. Sign up to connect to our classroom!

If you haven’t already done so, I hope you’ll consider creating a GoNoodle account for your family!

Thanks,
Mrs. Weddle

Study Island

The second through fifth graders are getting ready to start their second round of benchmarking tests.  Beginning this Thursday we will go to  Study Island to take our language and math tests.   This will give the teachers a good idea of how much they’ve grown since the first round in August.  The students have been practicing for this and I know they will do a great job.

The kindergartners are working hard on their letters and sentence building in our Reading Eggs program.  They have so much fun on this program and earn eggs that they can spend on their avatar’s clothing, home and in the game area.
