Scholastic Book Club:
Please note the change in orders this month. We are going to try the online ordering for our classroom in order to earn more points and books for the children. Please place your orders online by Thursday, January 14th. Our class code is HKVRV
Please remember to send in any box tops you may have.
We have started to send the fluency boxes home on Fridays. Your child should come home with it every Friday. Their homework is to complete the activities listed on the tic-tac-toe board. These activities build fluency in many areas. This should be a fun way to do homework with your child and relieve the traditional stress of homework. Please send these boxes back on Fridays with your child. Do not just take homework out of the box and send it in separately. We may need to add supplies to the box so we need it in school! Please keep the materials that are marked “keep at home” so that you have them when needed. The weekly reading log is separate from the boxes. That will come home every Monday and is due back every Monday.
