Other Important Information
Lexia: 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, email@example.com 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!
September--Level 2 January--Level 6
October--Level 3 February--Level 7
November--Level 4 March--Level 8
December--Level 5 April--Level 9
I-Ready: This is a math program your child will be using that is similar to Lexia. It teaches your child at his/her "just right" level. Click on the link to the right. Your child's login information is on the front page of his/her agenda.
Happy May birthdays to: Angely--11th, Hiram--19th, Silvia--27th
Students may bring treats to school for their birthdays. Treats must be store-bought with ingredients listed on a label to prevent allergic reactions. Please let me know a couple of days in advance if your child wants to bring a birthday treat so I can plan accordingly. Thanks! Just a suggestion: Smaller is better! Mini cupcakes, small cookies, or small treats work great with this age group. Some students will only take one or two bites and throw the rest away. Currently we have 23 students.
We are working on our Memory Books for first grade!
Please have your child complete the front and the back of the homework sheet. You may help your child as needed! On days a new skill is introduced, you will receive a family letter. This letter is to demonstrate to parents how to help your child with the new math skill. This week in Math we will be learning the following skill: Lenth and Measurement For the rest of the year there will be no math homework. We will be completing it in class during our math stations.
Friday: No test this week
Our special classes are 1:00-1:40 everyday
Thanks so much for reading the webpage/newsletter! It is important to me that you are informed of what is going on in our classroom. To show my appreciation, I will reward your child with a small treat if you write this word: Sunscreen in your child's agenda above your initials on Monday, May 21st.
