We are now beginning the second semester. There is one challenge we hope to achieve and that is a 98 percent attendance record. With your support and continued parental involvement, we can make this happen. One of our school’s mottos is “Attendance Matters." Please send your children to school every day.
As we prepare for the STAAR, CIRCLES, DIBELS and Stanford 10 tests, we encourage you to have your children read daily. For comprehension, ask your children to retell the story in their own words. Set aside a time when you can sit and listen to, or read to your children. Take your children to the library to check out books to read at home.
Review math addition and subtraction fact families, multiplication facts and practice solving mathematical word problems with your children. Play games with your family, such as “Monopoly” and “The Game of Life” to teach life skills, real-world financial scenarios, following directions, focus and attention, money management, and patience while having family fun.
Google science projects for families to increase knowledge in the scientific method (ask a question, do background research, construct a hypothesis, test hypothesis, analyze data, and share results). For writing review, create and recite poems and plays, while families act out the play during family night.
Thank you for your continued support and involvement as we shift up to the next level.
Remember, “True education and transformation is a process of studying, doing and teaching, all at the same time”- David Wood.
