HUMANE SOCIETY DONATIONS / SERVICE LEARNING PROJECT

The Humane Society will be visiting us on Wednesday, December 21st!

Puppy Points and Kitty Cash: The children will be earning “dollars” in class.  Every few weeks we will have a class store, where the children can spend their money.  They can earn points/cash throughout the day for making good choices and trying their personal bests.  My students last year loved it!

Raz-Kids Reading Website Update

The kids have been doing a great job reading on raz-kids.  Please make sure your child takes the quizzes that are available for many of the books. Your child’s answers will help me identify their strengths and weaknesses when reading.  I purchased a headset for our class so that the students can record themselves while reading.  Happy Reading!
