Mrs. Hadrava’s Title I Page

Happy October!  This year, we will be having our fall conferences a bit earlier than usual.  At that time, Mr. Schroeder and I will be available to answer any questions you might have about Title I.  I would also like to assist you with navigating on my Title I page, if you aren’t familiar with it. 

This year, I will once again be working in classrooms to assist students with math, as well as doing a pull out program to work with students on readings skills. 

With regards to Math, one of the biggest helps you can do for your child is to work on all of their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.  Readily knowing their math facts will make daily work in math much more enjoyable for them and much easier. 

In Reading, the most important intervention from parents is to set aside a daily reading time.  This should be a time when the television is turned off and students read on their own, or you could read aloud with them, or even together as a whole family.  I would love to hear that my Title students are spending time reading with to their brothers and sisters.  Please encourage them to read with expression.

Each month, I will try to expose students to a new genre’.  October’s genre’ is mysteries.  We are reading mysteries, searching for clues, suspects, and discovering alibis.  This month would be a great time to utilize our public library to get a library card, if you do not already have one.

Please note that there is additional information about Title I on our district’s website. 

Once again, I will provide a monthly list of websites for students to use for reading and math activities and games.  I look forward to working with your child this year.  Please, contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  My phone number is (218)652-3500, extension 219, or you can e-mail me at shadrava@nevis308.org
