Summer Learning Challenge…


Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 22, 2018


Check out this summer challenge from Mrs. Reagan:

Have you ever heard the phrase “summer slide?”  It refers to the loss of learning that can take place when skills are not practiced over the summer.    We want everyone to keep their learning brains turned on by spending a 10-50 minutes every day practicing math facts and reading.  To determine the appropriate minimum number of minutes/day for your child, multiple their grade level by 10.  For example, a first grader would spend a minimum of 10 minutes — 5 minutes on math and 5 minutes on reading.

Our school has a login for all students on MOBYMAX –  an excellent online tool for all content areas.  These passwords for Kindergarten will be available in July.  Thank you for your patience.

You can also check out the learning tabs on our classroom blog for ideas and games!

On Mobymax, I recommend the following:

  • Grade K:  Number Sense, Alphabet and Reading Trio
  • Grade 1:  Number Sense (review), Math Fact Fluency and Reading Trio
  • Grade 2-5:  Math Fact Fluency (keep those facts fresh) and any of the other applications on the site.

Also, if you would like to track reading minutes over the summer, this counts too.  Simply log into this form once a week to tell me how many minutes per week or per month you are reading.  Summer learning contest ends on August 20.

All students who participate in summer learning entered into a drawing 


Finally, Mrs. Vandenberg, our librarian, would love to have post photos of you reading over the summer.  If you have a photo of your reading during vacation, send her the photo at

I hope that you are enjoying your summer!  ~~~~Mrs. Reagan

Last Week of Kindergarten!!


Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 8, 2018

June 4 – 8

Wow!  Where did the year go?  I can’t thank you enough for sharing your Kindergartner with me this year.  It has been such a pleasure to be part of their journey!  Here is snap shot of our week:

Countdown Fun:  We had a lot of fun popping a balloon every day to see what fun was coming for the afternoon.  We loved doing fun science experiments, having an ice cream treat with all of our Kindergarten friends, popcorn and movie day, sit anywhere day, and bubble gum day.  

First Grade Classroom Visit:  We got to visit Mrs. Stadt’s first grade classroom.  The first graders told and showed us all around her classroom.  It was fun to hear all about first grade!  Thanks for letting us visit Mrs. Stadt!!

5th Grade Buddies:  We love our 5th grade buddies!!  They visited with us this week and celebrated our amazing sight word success.  They made a celebration tunnel for us to run through.  As we made our way to the end we collected a gold coin.  Then we got to have a yummy popsicle treat and play together on our playground.  Thank you to all of our 5th grade buddies for helping us all year through!!  Good luck in 6th grade!!

Mystery Reader:  

  • On Tuesday Olivia was so excited to see her Mom walk through the door as our Mystery Reader!  Mrs. Haase read us the book, First Grade, Here I Come!  by D.J. Steinberg.  We loved hearing this book!  It got us all excited for first grade!  Thank you for visiting with us Mrs. Haase!!

  • Thursday Danielle was so surprised to see her big sister, Audrey, a 4th grader at Georgetown, walk through our door as a Mystery Reader.  Audrey read us the book, Good Night, Good Knight by Shelley Moore Thomas.  We loved this tale of the Good Knight who tirelessly helped put 3 dragons to sleep over and over again!

I wish you all a FANTASTIC summer!! Please keep in touch!  Thanks again for sharing your child with me!!
