Book orders are due on Friday, March 2. Please enclose cash or checks made payable to Scholastic Book Club. Orders usually arrive 2-3 weeks after I send in the order.
Many good books are offered! Children get very excited when they own their own books.

Thanks to those that have participated. March is the last month!
Reading – Leisure reading is extremely important. Children will copy what they see. If parents read in their free time, children tend to do the same. Enjoy a good book together. If you are interested in reading a chapter book to your child, your child can sign one out from the library.
When working with familiar books practice retelling the story and reading with expression.
Math – We continue working on number patterns. We are also taking timed tests on addition facts. Children should have fast recall of basic facts. Flashcard practice can help.
Look over the math paperwork carefully so you can see how your child is doing. Is your child checking work before turning it in to see if it’s complete? Are there more than 1 or 2 errors? Is it neat? Papers should be fixed, finished and returned to me.

Merry, mad March comes in with a bound,
Tossing our caps and our kites all around,
Whisking the cobwebs out of the sky,
Teasing wee birdies just learning to fly,
Giving each tree-child a vigorous shake,
Telling each bud it is time to awake,
Jerking leaf-coverlets off sleepy heads,
Routing young flowerets from earthy beds,
Then with a song that makes work only play,
Merry, mad March goes dancing away.
Notes To Parents
Please review the menu each day with your child. It helps the children’s arrival when they can quickly take care of their own lunchcount.
We’d love to have more parents or grandparents in as Guest Readers. Let me know if you are interested.
