Things you can work on at home
Writing Sentences: Dictate a simple sentence to your child and have them write it. Check to see if they used an uppercase letter and the correct punctuation mark, without you reminding them. If not, point it out. A sentence a day will get them in the habit. We do this in class each day as well but still many forget uppercase letters and punctuation.

Math facts: double digit addition without regrouping; subtraction facts will begin in 2 weeks

Virtus
Once parents go through the original Protection of the Children their is an ongoing monthly training called Virtus. It is an online monthly newsletter with interesting topics about how to keep our children safe. They are quick easy reads with one question to answer at the end. This comes out the first full week of each month. Each of you will need to read the article and answer the question. If you fall behind you will not be allowed to participate in school activities such as field trips, parties, coaching, and sports. The teachers do it as well. I have really enjoyed every article. It only takes a couple of minutes to read it and answer the question but they are very informative. If you have any questions about how to access it please let us know. The site is www.virtus.org. You should read the article the week it is received. Thanks so much!!
