Lexia

A few reminders about Lexia:


If going to the Lexia website, you will need to go to this link:

http://www.lexiacore5.com/?SiteID=2083-1292-0559-2135

(we have a special code to find our school)

You can either copy the link above, go to my webpage under the reading tab and choose Lexia, or go the Fancy Farm webpage and click lexia on the left side of the page.


When downloading the app you need the one titled Lexia Core 5.


I am proud of how hard the kids are working to level up.

Box tops will be collected until Wednesday.

I am sending home a note about our Valentine’s Day exchange.

Wordlist 13 will be coming home tonight. Please review these with students and on Friday, I will reassess anyone who did not get all 12 today. I am sending home all books tonight. Blue readers will return Wednesday and Red on Thursday. I am sure you are ready to hear something else.

The 100th day is Wednesday. Students need to have their 100th day project by then. Students can also dress up like they are 100 if they would like to. I always love to see what they come up with. If you volunteered to send a snack, please return those tomorrow.

NTI Days

I am so impressed with how well everything went for the first NTI days. Our first NTI day was for the eclipse so technically these two days were day 2 (1-18-18) and day 3 (1-19-18). I know that was mislabeled on your checklist and I apologize.

Mastery Connect users:

I am sending home a checklist for days 4, 5, 6, and 7. If we have another NTI day please begin with day 4. I have included the checklist for your convenience. 

Paper Packet users:
I am sending home the paper packet materials needed for days 4, 5, 6, and 7.  If we have another NTI day please begin with day 4. I have included the checklist for your convenience.
