Dear parents and guardians,
As students read their nonfiction books, I need them to have post it notes. I am unable to provide the amount they want to use. Could you please purchase a stack of post it notes for your child to use or donate to the entire class? The lessons in reading require them to take notes as they read, and post it notes make it easier and more fun.
Second, as you just read they have started reading nonfiction books. The students should be reading 20-30 minutes a day and writing for at least five minutes of that time on the book. This means students should have reading for at least ten minutes at home or writing for five minutes depending on what they do not complete in class.
Each class will also be completing a word study. They will begin by receiving the vocabulary on Wednesday.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs. Becky Leffler
