Another great theme during the month of March will be characteristics of someone with good citizenship. Citizenship can be a very abstract idea, so we'll be digging deeper into what students DO know about it.
While you are focusing on Reading this month, try checking out a few of these titles to read as a family.
Dear Troy Union Families,
Would you like to be a motivator for someone this month? March is Reading Month, and Troy Union has challenged all students and their families to participate in a month-long contest.
Completing at least 25 reading challenges, listed on our special March reading calendar, could earn your family a $10 gift card to Barnes and Nobel! I know we have lots of students who complete these challenges weekly, but I'm looking to motivate others to join in on the fun!
I'm inviting all families to share photos of themselves completing the challenges! The next time you are at the library checking out books, take a photo! The next time you walk in on little Susie reading to her stuffed elephant, snap a photo! Take a selfie of you and the kids reading before bedtime! Doing so can easily motivate others to join in on the Reading Revolution! Stay tuned for photos of Kona and me having a blast with books in March!
You can share by: visiting my Classroom's FACEBOOK page and sharing your photo on our wall, @MrAndary on Twitter, you can also email photos to me with permission to share them on the above social media sites!
Mark your calendars for May 12th! Troy Union is taking a field trip to the Macomb Center for Performing Arts to see a live performance of Charlotte's Web!
Please make sure we have your child's permission slip and $15 in as soon as possible so that reservations can be made. Click HERE, see our Downloads page, or the Troy Union website for the permission slip and other info.
To help us with Run-On sentences, Schoolhouse Rock teaches us about and, but, and or!
"Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him and to let him know that you trust him." Booker T. Washington
Imagine: you're 7 years old. You have 20 multi-colored Lifesavers wrapped around your wrist. What do you do next? Well, naturally, you lick 'em! I bet there wasn't a family that DIDN'T need to do laundry this weekend after the sticky sleeves I saw on Friday! Check out the photos from our party on our Facebook page!
We have a new student in Room 34! Her name is Einar! She's a little shy right now, but once we get a photo and a little more information we can add a photo to our website and share a little bit about her! WELCOME EINAR!
