BRAG TAGS:

Brag tags are used to reward and motivate students to meet academic, behavioral and character goals. Brag Tags need to be earned! They are not given out to every student each week (with the exception of the 1st day of school tag). Each Friday morning we will have a Brag Tag ceremony where recepients will be able to be recognized by their classmates and myself and have the opporutnity to wear the tag for the rest of the day. At the end of each Friday, students will display their tags on our bulletin board.

Birthdays:

We love birthdays! Students are welcome to bring in a birthday treat for the class to enjoy in honor of celebrating their special day! You can send the treat into school with your child or drop it off to the main office in the morning. If your child's birthday falls on a weekend or day when school is closed, please contact me and we can pick a day to celebrate when school is in session!

Morning Meeting:

Each morning our class will join together to begin our day by completing the calendar, 100th day countown, lunch count and attendance, along with responding to a morning message/question and activity before watching the morning announcements. Each day of the week will consist of a different activity:

Monday: News Flash- Students will have the opportunity to share about their weekends or any other important news 

Tuesday: All Aboard- Students will be split into groups of 2 or 3 to choose a board game to play

Spelling Words

Students will be given a Pretest on Monday.  If the student gets 100% on the test, they will be given a Challenge Spelling List.  This will then become "their" Spelling words for the week.  If a student did not master the Pretest, they will use those words as their list for the week. Please practice the words during the week as we will be practicing them in class.  The Spelling Test will be given every other Friday. The list of spelling words will be sent home every other Monday.
