 ~Scholastic Book Orders- Support your child’s reading success! Did you know? Kids who read for just 20 minutes a day are more successful in school and life. Ordering from Scholastic Book Clubs is an easy way to find the best books that are just right for your child’s grade and interests. Here’s how:

-Choose books with your child online at: scholastic.com/bookclubs

-To order, connect to our class using our Class Code: L482Y

As soon as your order is delivered to our classroom, I will send it home with your child. Plus every order you place earns FREE Books for our class to share. Thank you for your support and happy reading!

This month's order due date is: January 31st.

HOMEWORK!!! 

Lexia Core5:(daily at home)  Lexia Core5 can be used at home for extra practice and to meet weekly targeted goals. Getting started at home is easy! 

1. To use on a computer, go to www.lexiacore5.com

2. To use on an IPad or android tablet, download the free Lexia Core 5 app from the App store or the Google Play store.

3. The first time your child uses Core5, you will need to enter the teacher email.  (kendra.broadway@acboe.net) Your child can then log in with their username and password used at school. 

Every Wednesday: Grammar homework will be sent home every Wednesday night to prepare students for their test the following day.  We complete the front side of their homework together in class, but they are responsible for completing the back side for homework.  I will take up their grammar homework every Thursday.

Every Thursday: Students will take home their completed DLR paper that we have been completing all week.  Their homework every Thursday is to review their DLR with a parent, practicing the skills that are on their paper.  After your child reviews their DLR with you, please sign their paper.  This will let me know that they, in fact, studied that night.  I will take up their signed DLR papers on Friday.
