Volunteer training is Monday, October 1st at 10:00 a.m. in the Commons at WOHE. Our second session will be Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the WOHE media center. These trainings are mandatory for people wanting to volunteer in the classrooms.
We are finishing our space unit. We will have a space test next Friday. A study guide will be coming home on Thursday or Friday.
Please make sure your child finds 5-10 minutes to practice reading each night. It is required for 60 reading minutes each week. We will be increasing these minutes throughout the year. Please write the minutes read each night in your child's agenda.
Information is coming home today about the WOHE 5k. It is scheduled for November 10th. Information also went home this week about a running club after school to practice for the 5k.
Next week we will begin a science unit about Space.
We are still working to build stamina for "Read to Self" and "Work on Writing". These are times during Daily 5 and our Communication block of time to become better readers and writers. It's also a great way for your student to practice at home. Set aside a place to read or write that is quiet and free from distractions.
Please try to find at least 10 minutes each night for your child to read. Each week your child is required to read 60 minutes. While I do not take a grade on these minutes, it is to make your child a better reader. Without practicing at home, it's hard to reinforce the practice we do at school.

We will be having our first classroom auction next Friday with our Schlager Bucks. If you have any small trinkets, toys or books you would like to donate for the auction, we would greatly appreciate it. If you are going by Walmart or the Dollar Store and would like to send in bubbles, sidewalk chalk, candy or little things like that we would also love those. Thank you in advance!
