New spelling words will be sent home today. Your child should have their words written in their planners along with a printed list.
I am trying to get my stations in full swing. We will be doing stations during Guided Reading. These stations will change in order to keep the interest level high. The students love them and so much learning is involved.. Learning can be fun! If you have any of these items that you would like to contribute, please feel free. I know sometimes we clean out and are amazed at items we have stockpiled. If you are cleaning out, I am your taker. 😉 I will take any of these items off your hands. If you choose to buy any of these items (absolutely no obligations), most items can be found at Dollar Tree.
Paper Plates (the white cheap ones…new, please)
Dixie Cups (new)
Velcro dots or velcro strips
Little foam balls
Pom Poms (not the cheerleading kind…lol)
Playing Cards (just the basic, please)
Small white foam cups (new)
Toilet paper/Paper towel tubes
Matchbox cars (does not have to be Matchbox…just that size)
Cups (plastic in a package)
Any kind of building blocks
I could always use white or colored cardstock.
Teacher friends: If you have any pattern blocks, unifix cubes, or the little square blocks that you are cleaning out, I will gladly take them.
Again, do not feel obligated! This is most definitely optional.
