Classroom News

  We had a wonderful first full week of school.  We are getting used to our schedule and the procedures of the classroom.  We are following our Classroom Promises: “We will respect all people, property, and thoughts.  We will keep body parts, objects, and unkind words to ourselves.  We will use materials and equipment properly.  We will be ready to learn every day and always do our personal best.”

  Please keep toys at home.  Your child may bring a basketball, football (no tackling), or jump rope.

  Thanks to Sadie and Aiden for bringing snacks last week.  We loved the push-up ice cream, Nerds, and Laffy Taffy.  Thanks so much!

  Last week, we read about the Boston Molasses Flood of 1919.  Mrs. Briggs was kind enough to bring molasses for us to sample (if we wanted).  Check out the Tuesday Tiger folder this week for a writing contest through Storyworks Jr.   Five winners will each receive a copy of Five Epic Disasters by Lauren Tarshis.  It would be so great if a student from Konawa were to win!

  Be sure to check your child’s reading marker every day and sign when he/she has completed the work. Your child will need to read from the big book every night and do Side B of math.  We are doing side A in class together.  Please check over the math to ensure your child has done it correctly.  We will be grading side B in class the next day.

  If you ever have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to email or text me at or 580-272-3549.  Thanks!
