K5 Summer Reading

Dear Children:
It is important to read this summer. Read books that you want to read. If you cannot read yet, then read with your parents. You can point to words you know; practice naming the sounds they make; look at the title of the book; count the words in a sentence; count the letters in a word; and LISTEN to your parents read.

Each student who reads 5 appropriate books (Dr. Seuss books, Easy Readers, Step into Reading, etc) and gives the list to his teacher by the 2nd day of school will get ice cream after lunch on the 3rd day of school. Here’s how it works:

• Read 5 appropriate books.
• Write the titles on a sheet of paper.
• Have your parent initial by the title.
• Give the list to your teacher by the 2nd day of school.

Ask your parent to take you to the Ascension Parish public library and participate in the Summer Reading Program.

Love,
Your K5 Teachers

Hop on Pop
The Cat in the Hat
Fox in Socks
Go, Dog, Go

Getting READY for 5th grade!

 

One of the major changes that students are faced with when moving from 4th to 5th grade is the new, nearly constant use of technology involving education. Technology is integrated into nearly everything we do in the 5th and 6th grade, and we are with your students every step of the way when it comes to venturing out into the waters of educational technology. It would benefit your student greatly if he/she were able to grasp and even master the basic skill of typing before ever walking through the doors..Below there is a free website that is proven to greatly aid students in their ability to compose electronically in a fun and creative way. Thank YOU for your giving your student the opportunity to begin already ahead:)
