First update! I love our class!They are such a fun group!  I snapped a few pics as we were packing up for the day. 

I wanted to mention that we are starting homework tonight. Students will be reading 30 minutes out loud to their iPad. Weird, right? They can do this in a quiet area, even outside. No internet required. We are piloting this in my class, and I can't wait to see how it goes. If there is a night you can't have them do homework, just shoot me an e-mail or sign the opt-out box on their iPad (students can show you how.)  Most nights though, I want kids to read aloud to their iPad and get that awesome fluency practice with accountability and responsibility.  This year you won't need to do/sign anything for them, it's all on them.  
We will be asking for a few things before eclipse day.

  1. Cereal/Shoe Box
  2. Ice Cream Toppings.  More info to come in Friday Folders.
Room Parents
We don't have a room parent, we do have lots of volunteers though.  Please consider being a room parent and I will help in any way I can!

We are going to sell Mums to raise money for field trips and fifth grade graduation.  Please keep us in mind as order forms will be coming out soon!
