It was another productive week in Room 13!  In reading, students worked hard to follow the rules and routines for reading centers, most completing all 5 centers by Friday!  This requires a lot of focus, diligence, and good time-management - skills that we will continue to work on throughout the year!

On Thursday, students took their first Math Assessment and did pretty well!  I will send home the corrected test with a grade sheet attached early next week.  You may keep the grade sheet, but the test MUST be signed and returned to me.  If you do not return the test, I cannot send home future tests. 

Students also passed in their completed reading and math fact logs this week - and returned home with prizes!  What "treasure" did your child bring home? 

* A Note About the Logs:  I think it is wonderful when children read more than 20 minutes or study math facts for more than 15 minutes - but in the future, for the purpose of this log, these extra minutes will not count toward their total.  Students should color in the book when they read for at least 20 minutes and the calculator when they study facts for at least 15 minutes.  If they do not meet the minimum, please do not color the icon.  If they read/study more than the 20/15 minute minimum, color it in - but you do not need to track the additional minutes.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Mrs. Jerrett, Cameron's mom, was our Mystery Reader today (along with her little helper).  Here are a few pictures from her visit!
