After they have learned about the country they will receive a visa to put in their passport (these are only pretend). So make sure they are here every Friday so that they can collect all 30 visas by the end of the year. They will also have to write a report and give a presentation (usually to a lower grade) at the end of the year on the country they were assigned.
ABOUT MR. SAMUELS
I have been married for 12 years to my wife Nicole and have a 10 year old son named Bobby, who will be starting 5th grade this year. I also have a cat named Owl. In my free time I love to work in the yard, draw, watch movies and listen to music. I also love spending time "Up North" Traverse City area. (The ocean has nothing on Lake Michigan) As far as school goes, my favorite subject was always History, but I always struggled with speling, oops, I mean spelling. I can't wait to learn about you and share more about me this year, as we learn a whole bunch of new stuff!
SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS
The first book order of the year is always the most important to getting your child off to a good start with reading, while helping to build our classroom library. By allowing your child to choose a book or more that interests him/her, it will encourage them to want to read more. For every book purchased throughout the year our classroom receives points to redeem for books to put in our class library. For every dollar spent we earn 1 point (20 points = $1 to spend). However, the first book order offers bonus points up to 10,000 if we reach $300. I know that is a lofty goal, but we have hit it before. That would mean we would get 10,300 points or about $500 to spend to build our classroom library. We also receive 10 free recent release books and up to 6 small group sets of books. I am giving 2 weeks instead of the normal 1 to reach this goal. Therefore, take a look through this Scholastic Books order form with your child and see if their is one or maybe two books you could order to spark their interest in reading this school year as well as benefit our classroom library. This will be the only time I ask you to order from Scholastic since it is such a value to our classroom.
Orders are due by Friday, September 7, 2018.
