Our Class has Spirit!

On Friday, the students showed off their Iowa/Iowa State spirit.  

In reading we introduced the strategy, Mental Images.  The students have been working hard on this strategy to help them with their comprehension.  Please sit down with your child and take turns drawing your mental images while they are reading.  

We are still talking about our Ideas in writing.  
We read the book The Best Story.  The students 
enjoyed writing their version of the best story.  

Students that returned their reading calendars were able to have lunch in the classroom.  They had a lot of fun!  The 2nd graders that read 170 minutes for the month of August were able to participate in the reading party.  The class decided to use the iPads.  The reading goal for September will be 350 minutes.  Happy Reading!

  • The school store will be open on Fridays.
  • If your child is in Cub Scouts, they can wear their uniform to school on Tuesday.  There will be a special program for our students that morning.  
  • Please keep looking at the calendar for due dates of tests and homework.  Please let me know if you can't see anything on it.  
  • Entertainment Books were due on the 7th, so please turn those in if you haven't already.
