My name is Ms. Todd and I am so excited to spend the year with your child, helping them be successful, independent, and responsible young learners! I will update this blog weekly so check often for updates, upcoming events, and ways you can volunteer.

Hope you had a great....


I know that I did, and hoping the same for all of you! This time of the school year is hard. It is the last long stretch of the year and the temperatures make it hard for the kids to stay focused all day. We will always be going outside for recess to get rid of the wiggles, and occasionally go out for reading or writing. If you have any extra clipboards, we would love to use them! Send them on in :) ! As always, I am happy to help in any way with questions or concerns. Please email me at  and we can set up a conference.

Free books!

Cheerio’s Spoonful of Stories!
Cheerios®, through its Spoonfuls of Stories® program, has once again put six million free children’s books inside specially-marked cereal
boxes. To celebrate the program’s 10th anniversary and encourage parents to read with their children, Cheerios will hold special “Breakfast & A Book” reading events in select cities across the country, including Charlotte!
During the event, local TV meteorologist Larry Sprinkle will read a selection of books to a small group of children, all of whom will go home with a gift bag that comes with three new books.
Would you be interested in sharing information on this reading with your students’ parents? We would love if they are able to attend the reading at the Lowes Food located on 16045 Johnston Road in Charlotte on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at 1:45 p.m.

Last week in February!

Yay! We have just started clubs at Sterling. Our class has the pleasure of Mrs. Serkin coming in each friday to teach our club to our class. She is doing a "book and cook" club for our class. It is going to be awesome! A great way to extend a book and really dive into comprehension. She is aware of food allergies, so do not be alarmed.

Please bring in your box tops and any kind of plastic bags! We are working with Harris Teeter at a chance to win $1,000 for our school... just by bringing in a plastic bag! Lets work together and do this :)

Words this week: any, from, water, annoy, voice, because

Looking ahead:

DR. SEUSS WEEK! (please look for a red sheet about parent readers coming in to help read and celebrate Dr. Seuss!)
