Mara's Memos

We will be focusing on reading this month.  We will have a classroom reading competition.  For every new book read in class, the teachers will add a link to their paper caterpillar.  The two classrooms with the longest caterpillars by October 25th will win a prize for their classrooms.  Books that are already in their classroom can't be counted for this contest, so we are relying on you to bring books from home or the library to share each day. (Make sure you label the books with your child's name.)  Feel free to make arrangements with your teacher to sit in the classroom and read a story or two to the children.  Our students love it when parents, grandparents, or even older siblings come and help in the class for a short time.  To culminate this reading frenzy and to continue the fun, we will have Storybook Character Day on October 31st.  Your child may dress up as a character from their favorite children's book.  Make sure they bring the book that matches their costume on the 31st as we will spend the day reading everyone's favorite book and letting the children act them out.  Please do not dress your child in a scary costume: No witches, ghosts, vampires, zombies, monsters, etc.  This is not a Halloween celebration.  We will devote the day to reading, crafts, games, and activities that relate to the books we are reading.
