RAZkids

Hopefully you have been able to go on a couple times for some vacation reading! My own TKer has been using her RAZkids to log in, listen, read and check comprehension during our break! This week Austin, Danielle, Dyllan, Emma, Hayden, were on RAZkids this past week and each listened to the books, read the books and took their quizzes! Great work and good reading practice! Make sure you are doing the quizzes as well… feel free to have your child peek back on the text as needed using the icons at the top of the page.

If your child hasn’t been going on, this next week is a great time to get started!

Here’s the link again to the Resource/Links page that gives the directions.

“We Have Heart” Update!

206 Rocks! I never dreamed we’d collect this many meals! This past week we packed up all the meals (thank you volunteers for helping the students to decorate and fill the bags! These will be delivered over the break and will feed many families! Thank you for your generosity and for your family’s help to share with those who go without!

In addition Megan McGarry read about a little girl named Sayfre who had lost her family in fire and was significantly burned herself. She told her aunt that this Christmas all she wanted was Christmas cards to fill up her card-holding tree. Our awesome 206 class each stepped up to the plate to contribute to give Safyre cards for Christmas this year!

Look out for our New Year Heart Activity!

  • Meals for Mexico (1 bag = 1 Meal for a family)
  • Rainbows for Rady’s (Differently decorated Rainbows for Cancer Patients)
  • Tributes to Troops (Cards to send out to deployed troops)
  • Smiles for Safyre (cards)
