Free Tutoring at Millersville University
Information is now posted for the spring session of Study Buddies at Millersville University.  Here is the link:http://mustudybuddies.wixsite.com/studybuddies

I have had students that received this service before and it’s great. The MU student can do homework or reading/math support with your child. If interested, check it out.

I think our first “Fun Friday” was a hit. The kids didn’t get to play for very long because I showed them how to play each new activity and how to clean things up. Next week we’ll have more time for the FUN! My expectations for student behavior raise the second half of the school year. Students know by now that my expectations are: be a good listener, be a kind friend, raise your hand for permission to speak, and follow directions. I appreciate your support from home when you are notified of behavior issues. Thank you so much!

Next week:  It’s pirate week!

Monday, 1/14 – Our special is Art. Please study AR (say it like a pirate) spelling words for our test on Thursday.

Tuesday, 1/15 – Our special is Applied Engineering. This will be our last class with Mr. Kelley as our specials will change slightly in marking period 3. We’ll continue to learn about the AR sound, and we’ll say it way too much in one day. It’s fun to be a pirate in school.

Wednesday, 1/16 – Our special is Music. Please study AR words for tomorrow’s test. We’ll continue to learn about tens and ones during Math. We’ll learn about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thursday, 1/17 – We’ll have a substitute today while I read individually with the kids! I love spending 1-1 time with these cuties! Today is PIRATE DAY! The kids may dress like a pirate if they would like to. (Headbands, gold jewelry, eye patches, bright clothing). We made pirate hooks for our hands! I’m sure dressing like a pirate will help us to ace our spelling test! We’ll be going on a treasure hunt around the school to find AR words. We’ll continue to learn about Martin Luther Kind, JR.

We have book exchange today. Please send library books to school.

Tonight is the PTO rollerskating party at the castle. Admission is paid by the PTO, families must purchase skate rentals. Students must be accompanied by an adult.

We will have an MU student (Erin Fagan) in our class on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday until the end of May. She’ll work with students under my guidance, and even teach some lessons.

Looking Ahead: Friday, February 1 is the 100th day of school. We’ll celebrate by dressing like 100 year old people, and have a 100th day party in the afternoon. Students will rotate to stations. If you want to have fun with some cute kids, please let me know. More details to follow.

Enjoy your weekend!
