Mrs. Hanson- Grade 1 and 2

Week of March 23rd

Dear Parents,
These are crazy times, hopefully everyone is keeping safe and healthy. I hope you and your family are social distancing (my family is).  Please keep reading with your child.  If he/she is reading PM18 or higher, he/she can probably read Clifford or Franklin books.  If he/she is reading PM15 he/she can read Mercer Meyer (Little Critter) books.  Levels lower than that some early readers may be appropriate.  The Ontario government has started some education sites that you will be able to access.  We have already learned the 100 most frequently used words.  We were going to review these over the next few weeks.  If possible, continue to work on simple addition and subtraction.   Hopefully we will be back together soon!

Just a quick reminder about homework.  If you have not been receiving weekly homework on Mondays, please let me know.  I send back all the homework books (with new homework included) in a green math duotang or a blue spelling notebook.  If I do not have your child's book, I do not send home new work.  If the duotang or book have been misplaced, let me know and we will start new ones.  Thanks.

Book orders are due on Friday.  
Mad minute is going great!  We already have some students on level 11!  Keep up the great work!  Please practice simple addition with your child.

Popcorn and milk are on sale daily for $1.00.  You can send the money in your child's lunch bag.  A popcorn/milk cart comes around to our class at second recess.

Thanks for remembering to return books bags daily! 

Our Library day is on Tuesday.  You can return the books whenever you are finished with them.

Spelling words: 

We will work with these words all week in class and have a quiz on Friday.  Please sign and return spelling test books on Monday.  Thanks to all the parents and students that remembered to return the spelling homework books.

Happy birthday this month to: Finn.
