1. Scholastic Book Orders
We will submit orders online on the first working day of each month. As this is our first order, let's plan on submitting October orders by Friday the 11th. This gives you the rest of the week to book browse and place more orders!

2. Reading Logs
Students are currently working on their third reading log of the year. Thank you for your support from home as we develop a strong home-reading routine. Students know that "better late than never" is our goal. If they forget to turn their reading log in on Friday, please help remind them to turn it in ASAP the next week. I will often write a quick bit of feedback on their log's, sticker them, and pass back out the same day they are turned in. Last Friday I sent home all reviewed logs in orange folders so that you can review them as a family. I keep a record of reading logs and the rubric scores earned on each and use this as a goal setting tool with kids. A copy of the reading log will be uploaded to the website tomorrow for any at-home printing emergencies-look to the resources tab :)
3. Scheduling Tool
Our classroom coordinator, Holley Ring, has brought a great new online tool to my attention! I will be working with it at home tonight in hopes of having our Fall Conference and Parent Volunteer Schedules digitized! More info to come :)
We are transitioning to our second reading and writing unit of the year-I'm excited to share all the details with you this week. Student Weebly Websites are in the works and will soon house their most recent published narratives! Get ready for viewing and commenting-our class has been working hard and will have much to share!
