Here is another handout to update you on what is going on in room 110. This is also all on the blog. (mredwardskindergarten.blogspot.com) Today, since the students did not have library (because of ISATs) I thought it would be a good day to start our own book check-out system in room 110. I have a couple big boxes of books that are just taking up space and I thought the students would enjoy a new selection of books to take home. Here is how it will work. Students will have a chance, hopefully daily, to check out a book from my selection in the room. (this is a different selection than our class library) They will simply write down the title on a card and place it in a pocket chart. When they are done with the book, they bring it back and return it. Then, they can write a new title down and take a new book home. It is a pretty simple system that I don’t have a lot of time to manage. The students will be taught how the system works and we will go over it together for a couple days. Then your child will have to be RESPONSIBLE to do the system on their own. I will have a student librarian to help out with the management of it as well. The purpose of this is to get your child reading as much as possible and to love reading. On that note, remind your child of the Raz-kids and IXL weekly challenges this month.
Another thing, schooltube is not working well so I will continue to just put pictures and videos up on the blog. Please check it out at least weekly as it is updated every Sunday evening. Thanks.
