Take Flight . . . Read
Since Book It is over for this year, we will use a different reading incentive program to encourage the children to read during this last quarter of the school year. The program is called “Take Flight . . . Read”. We are asking the students to read 100 minutes each of the next six weeks. Every week the students will receive a chart to record their minutes on. For every 2 weeks that the students meet the reading goal, they will receive a small reward. We hope that all of the students will participate. Reading is a lifelong skill, one that can always be improved upon.
The third and fourth graders will write all of their assignments in cursive for the remainder of the school year.
Here are two helpful websites that you and your child have access to. IXL is a website geared towards helping your child practice math skills. Spelling City can help your child practice our weekly spelling words. Both of these sites can be accessed through my website under Cool Sites. These sites also require logins and passwords. If your child has forgotten these, please contact me, and I will share that information with you.
