We all got on Raz Kids today! Our class is split between two different teacher log-ins. If your last name starts with A-K, type lkloos for your teacher. Students with last names L-Z should type clack1 as the teacher.
If you haven't ordered a T-shirt, don't miss out! The T-shirts this year are great! Third grade T-shirts will be royal blue with the "Unmask the Super Leader in You!" Logo. They are great for spirit day, and we will all wear them as a safety measure for field trips. If you need a new order form, let me know.
Cobb County has paid for "First in Math" subscriptions for all elementary students and the students (and teachers) are so excited! We signed in and practiced our math facts during computer lab yesterday. Your child has a sticker with his/her username(ID) and password on it in the front of their agenda. "First in Math" is a great way to practice math facts at home. We will start learning multiplication facts later in the year, but almost everyone needs to build fluency in subtraction before that time. For a little friendly competition, as they practice at home they are earning points for themselves, the class, and the school.
On Thursday, August 13th we will have Open House at Addison Elementary. We encourage all parents to attend to learn more about your child’s class, expectations, communication and more to help you navigate the 2015-2016 school year. Although we know that many of you will need to bring your children, we ask that, if at all possible, you make arrangements for your children so that you can spend quality time with your child’s teacher. Along with classroom presentations, we will have a PTA and Foundation meeting and if your child is participating in the gifted program, there will be an orientation in the media center for you as well. Here is the schedule for the evening!
5:00-6:00- Open house for Kindergarten and First Grade
Target orientation for grades 2nd – 5th
6:00-6:30- PTA/Foundation meeting in the Café. Come here about all the wonderful things planned for this school year and how you can help.
6:30-7:30- Open House for 2nd-5th grades
Target orientation for grade 1.
We really hope that you will plan to attend!
Students be ready to sign and commit to our class mission statement tomorrow. It's a big commitment!
Wow! What a great first day! I was so impressed by all of the leaders that joined me in Room 204 yesterday morning. I love to teach and it seems that I have a class full of children that love to learn... what a great combination! We spent the day sorting our supplies, getting to know one another as we shared our bags, and learning classroom procedures. We even did some power writing and had our first fire drill. If today was an indication of what is to come, I am looking forward to an awesome year!
I have taught for 6 years and joined the Addison family in January of last year. I was so excited to return to the school I attended for 4th and 5th grade.
