This is Lauryn reading in the morning. She was so patient while I tried to figure out breakfast in the classroom!
Typically, this is what your child's homework will look like. And it is also the first week of homework. We will be adding spelling later. Homework is always due on Fridays. Reading Logs are always due the following week. We will always try to keep the reading on a pink paper so it is easy to find. If you have any questions, please let me know!

I can't wait to meet all the new first graders!
It has been a very busy summer. I went to North Carolina to visit my best friend. My favorite part of the trip was canoeing. We didn't really know how to do it when we got in the canoe. But with a little effort and problem solving we went all over Salem Lake in Winston-Salem.
Here in Denver, I went to Comedy Works to see my favorite comedian, Bobby Lee. I was so thrilled to have my picture taken with him. He noticed the shirt I was wearing and said, "Namaste". Very funny guy. I hope I get to see him again.
My boyfriend, Eric, my dad and step mom all went to the July 4th Rockies game. Although the Rockies lost we still had fun munching away at peanuts, sunflower seeds and of course watching FIREWORKS!
Eric and I also took a trip to Florida (our first plane ride together), where I met his step-mom, dad, half brother and half sister. We watched their big fancy house while they went out of town. I spent most of the time in the pool, while Eric worked. I fell in love with their cat, Cesar and their dog Pepper.
I spent a lot of time creating art work and participating in Trading Cards. Jerry Simpson is "the man" of trading cards in Denver. I was able to submit artwork to the Denver County Fair and volunteer at his booth. I had a wonderful time! Can't wait to do it again next year!!
Currently, I am dog sitting for my parents. Hadley and Smokey keep me alert! They are very playful and love barking at motorcycles. I've been trying to teach Hadley how to "play dead". We are getting closer every time!
I've spent a few days at Dora Moore this week. I am "weeding" out all the things that I don't need. It is a long, hot, dusty process! I can't wait to see everyone for the Popsicle Social. Thursday, August 21st from 2:00 – 3:30pm Bring in your school supplies! If you have any questions about school supplies, please send me an email : firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to meet with me privately before school starts, please contact me. You can also reach me on my home phone at 303.362.1488.
Please help your child respond in the comments section (first names only). I would love to hear about what you did over the summer!
Students will be using this blog A LOT. Check back often!!
As long as you have access to the internet, you can track your child's progress. And if you do not have internet, I have the ability to make printouts of the reports so you can view them. I am can chat live with you via our smart phones. It is a wonderful tool. I hope you will join me in using this tool to help better your child's education.
More information will be given on the first day of school so that each family can sign up. (It is FREE!) You can also visit classdojo.com for more information.
