Homework - I wanted to make sure you all understand that my belief on homework is to read 20 minutes each night or morning (whatever works for your family routines).
I have been sending home the math pages as OPTIONAL. :) I make them work hard at school, so unless you really want them to have extra practice on something, it's my philosophy to have them be able to play when they're at home. I will happily support you if you want your child to return the HW page each day. I'll be giving out a sticker for any HW page that is returned.
Happy belated birthday month to Macie and Ollie who are our August birthdays!

ELA - Baggy books will begin coming home this week. Yay! These books will not be the same books that we are working on in our reading groups. They'll be on level books according to where your child ended 1st grade. Our awesome reading teachers and I will be assessing my class to get more current reading levels this week. If you notice that the books coming home aren't a good fit, feel free to let me know!
Math - We'll test over Chapter 1 on Thursday!
Science - Due to the MAP reading and math testing and reading assessing, we'll begin Science next Monday!
