First Day

We had a wonderful first day of school! They did laugh at me though because I kept getting names mixed up :/ but I am hoping to have them all down by the end of the week!

We went over a lot of procedures today. The school has set up quite a few routines and procedures that we went over and we are hoping to review those often with the students to help them stay on task, follow rules, and have a safe learning environment. It was fun getting to know something special about each one of them. They learned a little about me and I learned some different things about them (like a lot of students like soccer/sports, one likes to cook, a few love horseback riding, some love playing with their friends, others like playing with miniature things). It was so fun to get to know them!

Thank you to all of you that set up for the remind texts! If you have not please do so soon. The instructions are on the purple paper!

Some have emailed me their county and I will be emailing back soon to let you know if the county you picked is still available. Please try to email me your child's choice within the first week!

Please look to the right side of the blog and see what type of genre your child needs to read for September. It has a heading that says "BOOK REPORTS"! If you cannot see it on your mobile device scroll to the bottom and click show "web version". This is where you will find all the information you need for the book reports and county reports. Please remember the book your child chooses needs to be around 120 pages. Once your child picks a book please email me your child's book title so I can mark them off!

I hope your child had a wonderful day and I am excited to see them tomorrow!

Welcome

Welcome back to school! I am so excited for the school year to begin. We are going to be learning about so many fun and interesting things this year. We will be learning about the water cycle, rocks, Utah, math facts, literacy novels, vocabulary, and many more!
This first week of school we will be taking some pre-assessments and reviewing procedures and classroom rules.  We will also be starting our literacy program, Journeys, this week and math.
This week we will be doing some fun getting to know you activities and having a good time. I know many of you already know each other, but I cannot wait to meet all of you and get to know all of your likes, dislikes, enjoyments, and sweet personalities. 
Our time together will be crunched because we will be switching each day with the Chinese class at lunchtime.  We only have 2 & 1/2 hours together each day and we are going to work extra hard to get tons of learning in during that three hour block.  During their 2+ hour block we will be doing our literacy program (reading, writing, grammar, fluency, etc), math, social studies, and science.  It will be a lot of fun, but it is extremely important to come each day ready and to do your part! 

I hope you are as excited as I am about coming to school! I can't wait to meet all of you and to go on this new adventure with you.
