Mrs. Adams' Class ​
​​August 13-17th

​Thank you for attending our Open House. It was nice to meet you and your child. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as we begin our adventure into this new school year!

In your child's planner will be written the daily homework assignment along with the spelling words for the week. Please be sure to sign your child's planner everyday. Planners are are great way for us to communicate along with Classdojo. We are using Class Dojo points as an in class program.  If is ​a concern, I will send you a private message.  Please don't hestitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

​Important News! 

Snacks:  Since our lunch is late, the children really enjoy a small snack in the m​orning.  If you are willing to donate a class snack ​some suggestions are goldfish, pretzels, crackers, cookies, popcorn...​

Your child is also responsible for practicing the weekly spelling words as well as reading an AR book each night.  I also encourage all students to go on Compass Reading and Math for additional practice.


     ​Please encourage your child to be reading and testing on AR books everyday. He/she needs to read each book at least 2-3 times before taking an AR test. Every child has the time in class to test on an AR book if they use their​ time wisely. A label with your child's individual point goal for the 1st quarter has been placed in your child's planner. The total points your child will have to earn is for a 9 week period.  Each child begins the new quarter with 0 points.  Your child should be at 10% of his/her goal by  August 17th.

​​     Our class is working hard on achieving AR Certifications.  At the end of the school year, if a student has earned 100 total AR points for the year they receive an awesome trophy!​​ 

Have a great week!
