Spelling Words

Please check your email on Mondays to find pretests and your child's Star Folder for a paper list. Please have your child practice their words each night until he or she can spell them all.

Rambler Red Homework

We will start this again next week. I will text a small homework assignment to you for the kids to complete sometime during the week and return to school when it's done. When they complete the assignment, they will receive a red bead for their Brag Tag necklaces. This is not required- it is a way for kids to share with you something we are working on in school and a way to earn another bead for their necklaces (which they get really excited about).

Teacher's Notes

  • Please remember to call the office if your child will be late for school or absent for the day. You can also message me and I can pass it along to Mrs. Ryder.
  • Please be sure to ask your child how their headphones are working. There are several kids who may need a new pair.
  • Don't forget to check your child's STAR Folder each night- there are many times I send paperwork home during the week. If your child is absent from school, there may be homework for them to complete and bring back the next day. Thank you for helping them with this! Also, please be sure that they have their STAR Folder with them every day.
