Don't oversleep and miss the bus-
because you will be late.
That's a habit teachers generally
Never tell your friends at school
that you just ate a fly.
They are sure to tease you,
and wonder when you'll die.
Never call your teacher a name
when she is not near you.
Teachers' ears are excellent,
and they can always hear you.
And if your report card turns out badly,
don't blame it on your buddy.
Kiss up to your both parents, quick,
before they make you study.

Ask your child to explain what and where a Table of Contents is and how to use one.
In school this week: (this is not your homework assignment; this is what we’re doing in school)
Reading: I can read for understanding. (RI3.1) I can distinguish between literal and figurative language. (L3.5) I can do research to gain knowledge (RI3.5) Writing: I can recognize and write text structures. Math: I can recognize geometric figures (G3.1)
A great big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Reader’s Recital last week. Each student read something which they had written this year, and it was a fantastic chance to hear great reading and writing. Many readers were very nervous, but everyone managed their emotions and read with great skill. Well done!!
THANK YOU, also, for the great amount of love you showed Mr. D and me on Valentine’s Day. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing your Valentine box creations, partying with you in the morning, and feeling so special because of the love you showed us.
Thank you for showing such love and kindness, too, by not sharing your germs with us when you are sick. We are always sad when someone is away from school but are so glad when you come back healthy and ready to learn!
