This is our final official weekly news letter.  If I have important information for you next week I will post it here and send another note.  Otherwise, have a great summer everyone!!

Please note that as we approach the summer break students often feel anxiety over the unknown of the days ahead.  I strongly recommend you establish a regular routine in which your 7 year old can feel as though they know what is expected of them and can have success each day.  Without this structure in the day you will find an increase in misbehaviors and complications in communicating.

There are no more home assignments.  Summer activity suggestions will be in the folder this week.  Please ask your child to read each day, write in their summer journals and practice incidental math skills such as counting the coins in your pocket or playing a board game.

Be safe and have fun!

I have truly enjoyed your kids this year!  What an amazing group of people we had in first grade!

The CEO of CPS has written a safety plan in which she states all staff will be required to complete periodic background checks.  If you are interested in reading the entire letter please let me know and I will print it for you.  There are also copies in the main office I believe.

Next week (6/13) students in room 112 will preform in “Rockfest” produced by Ms. Walker, the music teacher.  For more details please contact her directly.

If you are planning to leave Ray for next year please alert the main office of any transfer details.

Please contribute snack for the group ( We still need snacks until June 18)

Our class will complete the NWEA assessment this week.

Home assignments:
If your child is not reading daily and practicing single digit addition and subtraction facts they will likely fall behind their peers who do practice daily.

Read daily and keep track of minutes
Sight word practice: ready, anything, upon, kind, places, also, flower, warm

Math worksheet & memorize single digit facts practice (Mon – thur)
Fix the sentences worksheet (Mon – Thur)

Reading Log: (note: please try to read a minimum 10 minutes each day.  An adult reading aloud to a child counts.  If you miss a day simply write 0 on the line)
