This week we have been practicing all the reading skills we have already learned (being a book lover, reading with reader respect, and 3 ways to read a book). We have also added how to talk about book with our peanut butter/jelly partners. We are learning how to share:
*our favorite part (the part we love most)
*that’s cool (something interesting)
*I didn’t know that (something new we learned)
*That’s happened to me! (we call it a “connection”)
This week our focus has been on drawing a picture of us with all our parts…..meaning….head, neck, body (torso), legs, arms, hands, fingers, feet, face, hair, and adding more details that make us special like glasses, freckles, designs on clothes. We have also been practicing drawing us in different poses…standing, sitting, running. Please help your child practice these skills at home by drawing pictures for you of things they do at school or at home.
We took our first math test of the year! Our focus was on the numbers 1-5, identifying groups, drawing scenes, identifying shapes, drawing shapes, and writing 1-5 the “school way”. I can’t wait to share these tests with you at conferences.
Order has been placed….just waiting for it to arrive. When it does I will put any books that were ordered into your child’s backpack. If you didn’t order this time, that’s okay! We will be having a book fair the first week of November during parent teacher conferences. It is a Wild West theme and we will be having a coin war. So start checking those cushions and cars for loose change!
Here are pictures from our fashion show! I tried to get a picture of each child with their cape(so we are not wearing them correctly). We shared our letter and its sound with our friends. And then shared 2 things we put on our cape that started with that sound. We flew around the room like super heroes to show our capes off. It was a lot of fun!
Was a HUGE success! Thank you to all the families that collected donations. Thank you to AMAZING PTC parents who organized it. Thank you to all the parents who came to walk with your child. And thank you to Mrs. McClure and Mr. Matt for making walk-a-thon lots of fun!
is on MONDAYS! Please remember to return your child’s library book each week. They are really excited about getting new books!
Our party will be on Tuesday, October 31st. Our party will be from 2:30-3:30 PM. I have enough volunteers already! There will be a costume parade at 2:00 PM that you are welcome to come and watch.
Here is the attachment for the Halloween Costume note: Halloween Information-1iv7zie
Notes were sent home today, Friday, October 20 with your finalized conference time. Please return the bottom portion of the note so I know you received it. Please make sure to keep the top part of the note and save the date. I look forward to meeting with you!
We read this story today as we are reading lots of fall stories in our classroom. Homework was sent home with your child today. It is due Friday, November 3. I hope you enjoy thinking of ideas, helping your child plan, and making their turkey in disguise. It is a great way to spend some one on one time with your child and make him/her feel special.
