September's Virtue: Friendship

9/20: It was great meeting all of you last week!  We've hit the ground running & are settling into our routines!  Please continue to review our class pledge/expectations with your child.  It appears below.  Below you will also find an update to our curriculum for the month of September & our specials schedule.  Our weekly Gospel lessons can be found on "2-4 is Living the Gospel"--reinforce them weekly.  Spelling & vocabulary words will begin to be posted on the "HW" tab next week.  Finally, on the "Resources" tab you'll find a hard copy of what I discussed at BTSN & our 1st day of school picture.
We are waiting for the student accounts to be updated for ThinkCentral & IXL.


OTHER REMINDERS:
-While Pickup Patrol is used to report your child's absence on a given day.  A written absent note STILL needs to be submitted on the day they return.  
-After lunch DEAR time books need to be changed each week.  Books can be from home or school library, but should last a week.  I've noticed many picture books that are fun to read, but are too simple and not grade appropriate.

-IXL logging in for specific skills is being assigned for HW.  Keep your log in info in a safe place.  https://www.ixl.com/signin/stagnesschool

-It's also good practice to log into ThinkCentral on Thursdays to review our weekly story prior to the test. 
-Only a school gym sweatshirt or school button sweater may be worn if your child is cold in the classroom.

*DISMISSAL PROCEDURES:  We are now using Pickup Patrol to report all absences and changes to dismissal. Absence reporting must now be made through the app by 9 A.M. All changes to your child’s normal dismissal must also be completed by 2 P.M. through  Pickup Patrol as well.

*No toys, crafts, or sports equipment may be brought from home


*Home access has been given to Think Central (Go Math & Journeys).  This is great for extra practice in math, reviewing our weekly story, or for printing pages when your child is absent or the page is forgotten.  The direct link can be found under Resources.
Forgotten math HW or out sick?  Here are the new printing instructions for ThinkCentral: Think Central Printing Directions.docx

*A REMINDER THAT ALL TESTS (EXCEPT SPELLING & READING) NEED TO BE SIGNED & RETURNED!

OUR PLEDGE
     In order to learn & have fun as a member of Class 2-4, I promise to be responsible by: doing my work in a timely way, listening to others, not talk when anyone else is, keep my hands to myself, take care of my things, be respectful, include others, and treat everyone kindly.  I CAN DO THIS!

Math - review of basic facts to 20; ways to show numbers & number sense
LA -  types of sentences; subject/predicate
Reading -  sequence; compare & contrast; author's purpose; cause & effect; story structure
