The timed reading logs are coming in with very impressive results! I will be doing a timed reading test in the beginning of March to show you how your child is progressing in the classroom. I will share it at conference time.


Our amazing room parents (Mrs. Cordola, Mrs. Metlen, Mrs. Roberts) planned a terrific week for teacher appreciation. Come in and see the wonderful decorations that they placed on my doors. The Charton doors are the talk of the school!!The artistic Mr. Metlen assisted the room parents and created an amazing picture of Mrs. Charton with all of her adorable cupcakes (the students). I love it!!!
And thanks to all of you for all the wonderful gifts, yummy treats,and priceless notes. You are truly amazing and I thank you and your children from the bottom of my heart!

Friday, February 28
The entire school will be celebrating Read to Me Day. We will be visiting other classrooms and sharing our favorite Dr. Seuss book. Please have your child choose a Dr. Seuss book and practice reading a few pages that he or she will read to other students during this fun day. I have many books in class if you need to borrow one, please let me know.
Also, first grade will celebrate Dr. Seuss Day on this day. We will be eating Green Eggs ! (10:15 to 11:15).
We will be needing some materials to make this happen. Please contact the room parents if you would like to contribute (milk, toast, butter, plates, forks, cups, orange juice, waters) Thank you!
