Reading homework tonight

August 21, 2017

Reading homework tonight… the students have reading logs in their seesaw app on their devices. I showed them how parents can sign it by selecting copy and edit. This may take some practice to figure out 🙂 Students can read to selves, or have someone read to them. Soon I will show them on app on their ipads where they can read books, so they will always have something to read.

Good First Week!

This was a good first week and it has been fun starting to get to know the kids.  In the coming days we will be continuing to learn about our procedures in class and we will be getting started working on our regular reading, writing and math.

Reading Homework Next Week

Starting next week, the students will have nightly reading homework.  Their job is to read 15 minutes each night.  They will have a Reading Log that you can sign to show they did their reading each night.  They will return this log to me on Friday.  I intend to have the reading log available in the student’s SeeSaw app on their ipads so you can sign it there.

Solar Eclipse Monday

This Monday is going to be an awesome opportunity to witness a solar eclipse, and SES is going to see it!  On Monday we’ll be learning about the solar eclipse and then Monday afternoon, our entire school will be given special safety glasses to wear so we can actually see the eclipse.  It’s going to be really cool and a great memorable event!

Great First Day

August 17, 2017

Today I read the kids the book "First Day Jitters". Then for snack we had homemade chocolate chip cookies and Jitter Juice!

The kids also learned some things about me and I started to get to know the kids. I think we’re going to have a great year. What a wonderful class!
