Fun in First Grade


Skill of the Month: Rhyming Words

Rhyming games and writing poetry can be fun for children of all ages. To help introduce rhyming, make up silly words that “sound the same.” You will have to practice most of the week until the light bulb moment. The words can be complete nonsense words or real words as long as they rhyme.  Examples: I can play with a pup, but not with a cup. I can wear a hat, but not a bat. Write the sentences and draw a picture. For an added bonus, put the sentences into a familiar song like “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” or “The Farmer in the Dale.”


Second Grade


In second grade, we begin the transition from learning to read, to reading to learn. Reading is so fun because it requires imagination and sparks creativity.  It also takes our mind to places we may never get to visit. We need your help in order to assure that every child reaches all goals! All second grade students need to read each day for 15-30 minutes and discuss what they have read. Make it fun by writing a book report, reenacting the story with costumes, or drawing it like a cartoon. Add more excitement by including other members of the family. Be sure to have the boys and girls share these experiences with their classmates and teachers. Start sharing reading time with your entire family today!


Reminders and Notices


* Don't forget to pay the $7.00 supply fee.


* Second grade conference time is from 8:35-9:05 a.m. Please call your child's teacher to schedule conferences as needed.


Third Grade


Dear Parents/Guardians,
We are so excited about this new school year. This year is our first year for the Common Core Curriculum, which will make it a little more intense academically. Our third grade students are now expected to perform on what use to be fourth grade level. We know this can be accomplished with your support and cooperation.


We would also like to welcome our two new third grade teachers Mrs. Adams and Ms. Martin. Feel free to volunteer your time in our classrooms. Thanks, and let’s have a great school year.

Fourth Grade


This year I am expecting for students to rise to their full potential. I think students will be in for a challenge and will be pushed to new heights because of the challenging Common Core expectations and the level that Compass is expecting teachers to be able to teach at. I think the Caddo Heights family will be wowed by the success that students will make this year.

This year, I look forward to making mathematicians and scientists out of your fourth grade boys! We will do experiments, work with technology like laptops and iPads, and find mathematics in the real world. I look forward to working with your children as well as your support in and out of the classroom.


            Ms. Stokes, 4th grade boys’ teacher of Math/Science/Health


As we start the 2013-2014 school year, I want to first say that I’m so excited to be teaching 4th grade! I can already tell we have 4th graders that are going to shine on the LEAP test this coming spring! I’m also very excited to be teaching with fantastic teachers like Ms. Bundrick, Ms. Stokes and Ms. Morris! I can’t wait to see what great things this year has in store for our outstanding students and teachers!


            Mrs. Thompson, 4th grade girls’ teacher of ELA/Reading/Social Studies


I’m so excited for this new academic year and my new group of girls! I look forward to seeing the growth in mathematics as I stretch my girls to reach the expectations of the new Common Core State Standards.  In regards to science, I want to make sure my ladies understand that science is more than some nerd in a lab coat, but it’s all about exploring the world around you.  As always, I hold each of my students to extremely high expectations behaviorally and academically so they can move beyond their potential.
