Line Creek Carnival-TONIGHT!

I hope to see many of you at the Line Creek Carnival tonight! The carnival begins at 5:00 and ends at 8:00. Dress warm- many of the activities will be outside!

Midterm

It's hard to believe that this week marked halfway through the first quarter! Progress reports will be coming home next Monday, along with reports from the first STAR Reading and STAR Math assessments that were taken this year. Please let me know if you have any questions about the progress report when you receive it.

Math Fluency

Today we assessed on Topic 2 in math, in which we learned about various addition strategies. Next week, we will begin learning strategies to help us subtract fluently. Please spend a few minutes each night "quizzing" your students on their math facts, as adding and subtracting fluently is the foundation to what we learn in math throughout the year.

The Leader in Me

Have you seen our 7 Habits Tree? You may have noticed at the beginning of the year that our tree was bare. However, each day the students and I acknowledge other students in the class that we've seen practicing one of the 7 Habits. We write our acknowledgements on a leaf and staple them to the tree. We're excited to see our tree grow throughout the year!

Moments with Moms

Don't forget that Moments with Moms will be held at 7:45am on Friday, September 26th in the gym. Mothers are welcome to send me a picture of themselves with their child(ren) to be in a video that is played that morning. We hope to see all of you wonderful moms at this event!
