All graded assignments, tests, letters from the office, and student work will be sent home on Thursday of each week. Parents are requested to please sign the sheet on the inside of the folder and remove your child’s work, etc. The signed folder is due back to school on Friday.
Our class can use VocabularySpellingCity for word study, and your child has access to this great tool from home! VocabularySpellingCity is an educational website and app that allows students to gain and retain word knowledge through practice with engaging spelling and language arts activities.
You can access VocabularySpellingCity at www.spellingcity.com or by downloading the Spelling City app from iTunes, the Google Play Store or the Amazon Appstore. You can the class vocabulary and spelling lists by visiting my VocabularySpellingCity homepage at https://www.spellingcity.com/birnbaumslearners .
Bookmark this website address on your computer to make it easy for your child to access the class word lists. Your child does not need to log into the site to access my homepage. Our class word lists will appear on the left side of the page below my welcome message at https://www.spellingcity.com/birnbaumslearners .
On the app, students can search for our class word lists by clicking the MORE LISTS button on the home screen, and searching by Teacher Name. Once the lists have been loaded, have your child select a list, then select an activity to practice the words.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS
With the school year well underway, I’ve had a chance to learn how unique every student in our class is. It is so important that your child – along with their classmates – finds books they’ll be excited to read in school and at home. Scholastic Book Clubs flyers are a great place to find books your child will enjoy reading. Scholastic works with teachers to offer books that are age appropriate, high quality, and affordable. AND – for every order our class places, we get FREE books for our classroom!
Go online to scholastic.com/newparent – Look up my name (Birnbaum) – OR enter our Class Code (H2ZDX) – follow the instructions to place your order online – OR check off the books you want to order for your child and return this flyer to me with a check to Scholastic Book Clubs. THANK YOU!!
