I would like to welcome all our students and families to the 2012-2013 school year.
We had a most productive first day. I had a chance to meet many of the parents as the day began, and while I was talking to them and doing the usual paperwork the students completed information sheets and and interest inventory. They also completed a reading skills test that we will correct tomorrow. We went over lots of rules and procedures. The students interviewed each other. They went used the information from their interviews to writer short compositions. We did rough and final drafts.
The students also drew each other and used oil pastel for color. Many of the results were excellent!
In the afternoon, the students finished their portraits and worked on a math placement test.
I want to make sure all the parents know about the evening orientation meeting on August 23 at 5:00 pm.
Homework: (1) Do the A and B cursive review sheets. (2) Do the multiplication and division practice sheets. The students will do these papers for homework today, tomorrow, and Thursday. They will have the same paper for a test on Friday. It will be timed then.
