Keep On Learning With Reading & Mobymax
Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation. Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide. There are two ways to record your learning time:
Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.
- First Grade: 100 minutes
- Second Grade: 200 minutes
- Third Grade: 300 minutes
- Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
- Fifth Grade: 400 minutes
- First Grade: 100 pts
- Second Grade: 200 pts
- Third Grade: 300 pts
- Fourth Grade: 400 pts
- Fifth Grade: 500 pts
- Reading: Log into this form to record the number of minutes you read. You can record each day or enter the total for each week.
- Login will be firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan. email@example.com
Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!
I am looking forward to the morning bell wishing everyone back after a long winter break! Just a few reminders about this week! First of all we have PE in the morning. I know of a few students who brought their gym shoes home, so please check the backpack! Also, don’t forget a snack and water bottle.
This week we will begin our reading homework and students have free choice to read whatever they want. In the classroom we will be in book clubs and we will be reading Adventure/Survival stories. I will be modeling lessons while reading The Hatchet. The growth mindset theme for this month is “Feedback… it’s a gift”. We will be practicing peer evaluations throughout this month while in our book clubs.
I wish you a very Happy New 2019 and look forward to our continued work to get our children ready for 5th grade!
