Library Time is a special event at Oak School and a favorite time of the day! Please help your your child to remember to return their book so that Library Day means FINDING AND GETTING A NEW BOOK! Bring library book every Thursday.
PE and Shoes
We so look forward to our PE days. Part of the success of this event it the right shoes. Please have your child wear comfortable athletic-type shoes. Actually Tennies are appropriate most days, please, for playground fun!
Our class newsletter comes out on Fridays about 2 or 3 times a month. Your child will bring it home in their Take Home Folder on Fridays.
More information on the HOMEWORK IDEAS TAB ABOVE.
But generally, on FRIDAYS- READING LOGS COME HOME. Due the next Thursday. Our goal is 100 minutes per week.
Spelling Tests are each Thursday. Spelling Lists come home on Fridays in the your child's Take Home Folder.
What can I do to help my child to learn?
PARENTS: All of these ideas are choices for your child to become successful on their weekly tests. Students will learn to use what is helpful and complete what is necessary for Spelling mastery (70-80%). Thank you for all your support as you supervise your child at home the first few months and work with them on getting a routine in place! It really does make all the difference in your child's work and motivation at school! If your child has a consistent routine in place at home that you make them accountable for, then when they arrive at school, they will not struggle to get on board with their teacher! I look forward to watching for that to happen! Thank you again for your consistent efforts!
