At Dove, we believe no girl should be held back from reaching her full potential. However, anxiety over appearance keeps girls from being their best selves, affecting their health, friendships, and even performance at school. For more than 10 years, Dove has been helping young-people with self-esteem education, reaching 17 million of them so far. Berkeley School has partnered with Dove for the 2017-2018 school year to offer students in grades 4-6 an empowering self-esteem program.

Perhaps it has found its way to the Lost and Found located on the ground floor!
Please stop by the Lost and Found periodically to see if your child's lost item is there.

Your child will be bringing home a collection of spelling words weekly that have been introduced in class. Each night of the week your child is expected to do a different activity to ensure that these words and the spelling principles they represent are mastered. These activities have been modeled and practiced in school, so your child can teach you how to do them.
Monday: Remind your child to sort the words into categories like the ones we did in school. Your child should read each word aloud during this activity. Ask your child to explain to you why the words are sorted in a particular way-what does the sort reveal about spelling in general? Ask your child to sort them a second time as fast as possible. You may want to time them.
Tuesday: Do a blind sort with your child. Lay down a word from each category as a header and then read the rest of the words aloud. Your child must indicate where the word goes without seeing it. Lay it down and let your child move it if he or she is wrong. Repeat if your child makes more than one error!
Wednesday: Assist your child in doing word hunt, looking in a book they have already read for words that have the same sound, pattern or both. Try to find two or three for each category.
Thursday: Do a writing sort to prepare for the test.
Thank you for your support! Together we can help your child make valuable progress!
