At home practice:

Students have received multiplication flashcards. You can practice with your student on their multiplication facts.

Make spelling fun! Scramble the words for you student and see if they can spell them correctly by unscrambling them!

Science can be a hard topic. Re-reading the chapter with your student can ensure a better understanding of it. There are also at home experiments that can be found at the end of each chapter!


Volunteer Opportunities:

Group Reading: I need 1-2 volunteers to come into the classroom and work with a group of students on their reading skills. This will be on Fridays from 9:15-10:00 AM. If a different day works better, that can be arranged!

Lakeview Museum Field Trip: On February 3rd, I will need 3-4 volunteers for our Lakeview Museum filed trip. I would ask you to be at the school by 8:30 AM on this date. We will arrive back at the school around 12:00 PM.

Valentines Day party: Please make our party fun by helping out in our classroom from 2:15-3:00 PM. We will be playing games, making crafts, and having a fun snack. If interested in helping with snack but cannot attend the party, please let me know!

Volunteers are welcome in the classroom at any time! Please stop by whenever. If you could help with any of the above items, please contact me.
