We loved playing Don't Eat Pete, Decorating Donuts, Playing MadLibs, Dancing, Playing Bingo, Playing a guessing game and word search, and doing a donut eating contest. Thank you to all the wonderful parents that came by and helped with the party. We appreciate it so much!

Book Reports

Dear Parents - -

This Friday the Puzzle book report is due - - please have your child bring it with them at the beginning of the day since it takes awhile to share them. If your child completes it anytime this week they can bring it to school and turn it in early.

November's book report genre is on the right side of the blog. They need to read a Newbery Award book this month. Please try to have them read a shorter book if they can. Some students are picking 350+ page books and they are having a hard time completing them on time. Remember there book needs to be 120 pages or more...but please do not let them pick one that is too long. This book report will be due DECEMBER 1, since the last Friday in November is Thanksgiving week so we will not be here. Please help your child find a Newbery Award book and email me the title by the end of next week, November 2!

In December they will be doing a book report as well even though it is a short month. They get to find a Christmas children's picture book. (Very simple book is great!) They will be reading this short picture book to a 2nd grade student as their book report. They will have to create a puppet to go along with their book, but it should only take you about 10-20 minutes to create. The week we get out for Christmas break they will be sharing them with the 2nd grade students. As of right now I am wanting all the picture books and puppets here by Monday, December 18th. If your child has a Christmas picture book they absolutely love then have them use that book and create a puppet for it now. It is not something that has to be done in December. Whenever you want to have them do it is great. I am asking for them to not be turned in until after December 11th though because I do not want to lose anyone's books. Please email me your child's Christmas Picture book title by December 8th.

There will be a book report in January and more information about that will come later.

There will NOT be a book report in February because we will be doing some typing assignments instead to get ready for our Sage testing.

There will be a book report in March and more information about that will come later.

There will NOT be a book report in April.

May's book report will be their Wax Museum presentation and more information will be coming home about that at a later date. It will be due in the middle of the month though so you can use all of April to work on it, if you need to.

Thank you for helping your child with these book reports at home. They loved sharing their first one and by sharing the book reports other students are getting interested in other books and want to read them. It is also a great tool to help with their comprehension!

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.

Mrs. Jarvis
