  2. Hi Mrs. Clarkson,
    I’m Jasmines dad, just wanted to check out the site. Jasmine’s is very interested in your site. Look forward to meeting with you soon.

  3. Mr. Valdez,

    Thank you for your comment! I think it’s great that you and Jasmine visited the site together. I will be adding more links and educational games that will relate to current units of study- so check back! Also, be sure to explore the “Parent Links” section. Looking forward to meeting you! Jasmine, see you tomorrow!

  4. Mrs. Clarken,
    Raymond and I were checking out the website too and we love it. Thanks for all the work.
    I have a question about the sample homework sheet you sent home yesterday, are we to practice the spelling words on the other side or was that a sample also?
    Again, thanks!

    • I am so happy that you two have been exploring the weblog!

      I know that we talked this morning about your above question, but I’ll respond here, too, in case others were wondering the same thing! Yes, it was a sample, in that the students weren’t responsible for any of the work on either side of the worksheet outside of the classroom. I gave this sample to the kids to use as a visual while we discussed what was expected of them as far as homework. We have been practicing each homework activity in class this week so that they will feel more prepared to do it at home independently next week. Hope that helps!

  5. Hello Mrs. Clarken,
    Sophia is so excited to be in your class and couldn’t wait to check out the website! Although you may not receive and respond to this by this evening, thought I’d try anyways. The only items highlighted on her assignment sheet are Reading and “Don’t Forget” section. Does that mean she hasn’t yet been assigned the Math and Spelling homework, probably because she was moved into your classroom just today? Will she be taking the spelling test on Friday? By the way, the website is super…lots of great learning links!!!!
    Thank you.

    • Mrs. Moreno,

      I’m was excited to have Sophia join our class today! I’m so happy to hear that she is enjoying it. Yes, Sophia’s homework tonight is reading. She has the choice to read independently for 20 minutes, or “Family Reading” where a parent or family member reads a higher level book to her for 20 minutes. Sophia is not required to do the Spelling Homework this week. I did not have time to introduce our four new students to the spelling system yet, so I did not want to assign homework to them that might confuse or overwhelm them. I will ask that she starts Spelling Homework next week. However, Sophia can take the spelling test this Friday as a practice test if she likes!

      Thank you so much for your email. Please email here any time and I’ll get back to you as soon as I am able. Also, check back for updates and new activities! I look forward to meeting you.

  6. miss clarken i forgot my homework folder in the class room with my homework in side of it dose that count as no recess tomrow to i`m sorry!!!!!!!!

  7. Mrs. Clarken, I need to know if your class is having a picnic tomorrow 10/16/09? Raymond wants me to bring 2 pizzas and a pumpkin pie? Could you please let me know if this something that was being planned or is set for tomorrow.
    Thanks!
    Anna Garcia

    • Hi Ana,

      Yes, our picnic is set for tomorrow at 1:45 ish. I am bringing popcorn, pretzles, and some snacks. Some students are bringing fruit, crackers, and other snacks- but it is optional. Raymond said he’d like to bring pizza and pumpkin pie (which both sound great, of course!) but do not feel obligated. Our plan is to have our snacks out on a blanket or two on the field and then play some soccer and football.

      See you tomorrow!
