Classroom Update 3/8/19

We have a couple upcoming things that I need your help with:

Our field trip to UM Museum of Art is this upcoming Tuesday, 3/12. We currently have only one chaperone. I need 5 more or I will have to cancel the trip : ( If you are able to come, please let me know ASAP. We will be leaving Haisley at 10:30 and should be back by 12:30.

To cap off March Is Reading Month, we will have Camp Read-A-Lot in our classroom on March 22nd. I’m looking for volunteers to bring in tents and set them up for the day. Let me know if you would be willing to do that or send in supplies to help us make s’mores.

To support your child's math progress at home, please encourage several rounds of Moby Max fact fluency a week. Also to help with understanding fractions, your child can work through X.1 and W.1-8 in IXL.

Classroom Update 3/1/19

It feels good to finally get in a full week of school again! The kids are starting to get into routines and the rhythm of school once again : )

I’m sending home your child’s February journal today. Please look for it and take some time to read through it with your child. 
As a reminder, your child's main homework is daily reading. This can be independently, together with you, or you reading to your child and discussing what you read.
Beyond reading, there is a math review that comes home every Friday and it is to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. A spelling list also comes home on Fridays and the list is tested the following Thursday.

We will be busy this spring with many activities you should know about. Please check out the Upcoming Events here on the Blog often.
The UMMA (UM Museum of Art) Tour is coming up soon and I will need chaperones. Please let me know on the permission slip if you would like to help manage the kids.

Welcome to our newest student, Eric Marchewitz, and his family! We are so happy to have you join us here at Haisley!

Classroom Update 2/8/19

The past few weeks have sure been a bit interesting to say the least with all the days off school! We finally finished our NWEA testing yesterday after several reschedules. We spent the week reviewing math to take our unit test next Tuesday. The math review is coming home today. Please take some time to go through it with your child. A new spelling list was also sent home. As usual, the test will be next Thursday.

I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at NAAPID on Monday! Thanks to those of you who returned the pink slip so that we can plan for you to be here : )
Valentine’s Day is next Thursday. If your child brings in valentines, there must be one for every child in the class. The following people volunteered to send in a contribution for the class:
Tracy Welch-Konett~ Sweet treat
Jen Sopoci~ Fruit
Gozde Karabiyik~ Juice boxes
Tammy Ellies~ Chips/salsa
Sadia Haleem~ Plates/napkins

We are still in need of classroom snacks. Donations would be appreciated!
