Week 3 and we are off to a terrific start!

This week we will continue to reinforce routines and procedures with daily practice. A few notes for the week:

  • Please remember to have your child wear gym shoes on Wednesdays and Fridays.
  • School begins promptly at 8:45 am and ends at 3:45 pm. If you anticipate being late, please call the school. Also, please note that I will begin escorting the children in at 8:40 am.
  • Please return all forms that have been sent home: emergency contact, student information and lunch form.
  • The volunteer schedule will be available by the end of this week on the classroom blog. If you are interested in volunteering on a regular basis, please contact me. Volunteers will begin the following Tuesday, 10/3.  Please also consider volunteering in the lunchroom and during lunch recess. If you intend on volunteering, you need to fill out a volunteer packet prior to volunteering.
  • Please send donations of healthy snacks for 25 students.
  • Children are permitted to have “pop top” water bottles in the classroom.
  • Please pay the $85 student fee

This week in reading we will read Enemy Pie and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. The students will review the sounds for short i, b and g. We will also review the sound of s at the end of words. We will continue to learn about the 5 literacy activities that are part of our “Daily 5”. So far we have explored Read to Self and Work on Writing. This week we will add on Read to Someone. The students will work on stretching words, drawing hard to make ideas and using both pictures and words in writing workshop. We will learn the poem Six Little Ducks. In math we will learn about thermometers, weather, number stories and use several math tools as part of an exploration day. In science we will look closely at the sun, the moon and Earth. In social studies we will discuss different types of families and the people who make them up.

I will begin to assess the students’ reading levels using leveled word lists and the citywide NWEA assessment.

Have a great week!
