Students are now reading AR books.  After reading these books the student will take a test on what they have read.  It is taken on the computer at school or at home.  The link is on my home page under favorite Web sites.  When your child brings the book home, help them read the book and ask questions about the book.  They will be taking a test over the book and working for 5 points.  (Each book is worth only .5 points.  They will need to read at least 15 books) 


Students are to write Word Wall Words 3 times each on the paper that comes home each night Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Your child is working on the year-end goal of reaching level 10 (completing Level 9) using the Language Arts program, Lexia.  Please help your child go to this website at home so that he/she may obtain this goal!  We will also be working to reach this goal here at school.  Go to Lexiacore5.com .  You will need my email address, dobrinskik@scsc.k12.in.us for the first time that you sign in.  Your child's username and password for this program are on a label on the first page of his/her agenda.  Below i have broken the levels down by month.  If your child completes each level listed by the end of each month, he/she should have no problem reaching Level 10 by the end of the year.  Many children continue to work towards higher levels to better prepare them for 2nd grade!

Important Information!
Homework--Homework will be given Monday - Thursday.  You may help your child with homework as needed.  Homework will be listed in your child's agenda each day.  Homework papers will be in your child's blue folder.  The homework papers and blue folder must be returned to school every day.  We are working hard on our organizational skills with writing our assignments down and bringing our materials home. No homework on Fridays!

*Agendas--Students will write homework assignments in the agenda.  I will also write any notes to parents in the agenda as well.  If you need to write a note to me or another teacher, please do so in the agenda.  There is a place in the agenda for you to sign each night.  This is very important.  Signing the agenda lets me know that you have checked the homework, and that you are aware of your child's behavior for the day.  Behavior will be noted with a sticker each day.  The agenda is very important and must be returned to school every day.
