Lots of wonderful things are happening in the next few weeks!  We have the Halloween with our party and parade and then we have parent teacher conferences coming up in November.  Before you know it, it will be the holidays!  Oh no!  

Yeah!  We have finished our iReady testing and other assessments. I am in the process of creating a report of information for you to have at home that tells the strengths and weakness so that you have more of an idea of things that your child can work on at home, since the only required homework is to read every night.  

If you plan to volunteer anytime this year, whether in the classroom, school, field trip, parties, etc you must fill out an iCHAT form.  They have the in the office, but I will get one and see if I can scan it to put it as a file on this web page.  

Reading: We continue to work hard at reading.  This is our focus!  We will talk about how we can read books a zillion times, just like we watch movies, making words we read match the words on the page, and looking at old favorite storybooks.  If anyone is interested in helping me wrap some books up for a lesson this week please let me know.

Writing:  We will start our writier's workshop by talking about how we write about the things WE KNOW!  As we progress through the week we will learn about that, "WHEN WE ARE DONE, WE HAVE JUST BEGUN,"

 

Math: This week we will be learning about pocket problems where they use a pocket along with counters to figure out how many there are.  We will also learn about circles, begin learning how to sort, and determine the number of objects in a set when one more is added.  Below are some items that we are in need of for math if you are able to help us out this week.  We would need them by Tuesday.

Science: We are finishing apples.

Social Studies: I will start introducing the kids to community workers and what they do.

Health:
