• MyOn is starting up! Please be sure to read the note in your child’s red folder to have access to over 5, 000 books! You can even download 20 at a time if you aren’t going to be having web access on the lake this weekend!  Go to MyOn.com and click on Mathews Elementary!

    We also began a math website today (Front Row). This is a great site and kids are bringing home a paper today for you to be able to access this at home.  You will need to help type in their password the first time. 

    Reading Strategies this week!  As a group we are still focusing on looking at the picture to gain information and solve unknown words and think about the story to help us figure out what word might make sense.

  • Whew! Our first full week is complete! We had a great week learning how to SOAR in our classroom and in our building. Students showed great knowledge in how to be safe, outstanding, respectful, and responsible! I know they will have a great year and with these expectations in place be able to thrive in a safe and productive learning environment! Next week we will celebrate a few of the kids that have being SOARing for the month of August!

    As we begin to settle into our reading routines we will focus on 1-2 reading strategies each week. This week we will practice looking at the picture to gain information and solve unknown words. We will also think about the story to help us figure out what word might make sense.

    Please remember to sign your child’s learning log in the red folder each evening. This is a great way for you to quickly let me know of any transportation changes or concerns you have!
