What's New





Here are a few events and reminders happening this week:

  • ·         Our spelling and phonics focus are words that start with the /fr/ or /gr/ blends.
  • ·         During our Literacy time we are working on making mental pictures (visualizing) as we read to increase our comprehension of the text.
  • ·         Hopefully, everyone is working on their Halloween/autumn highrise shoe box. Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns with it. Since the writing project is an at home writing assignment, I would ask that you help your child to proofread and edit their writing as we are doing in the classroom.
  • ·         Speaking of writing, we are still working on Small Moment stories. So far we  have been able to link them in with our Making Meaning curriculum and an art lesson by writing about: Feeling left out, Having a horrible day, and What makes us scream. I am hoping by linking our writing lessons to our reading, art and everyday experiences that your student will have a more excited connection to writing Small Moments.
  • ·         Math time this week is a reminder of column addition, partial sums, and place value.
  • ·         Picture retakes are tomorrow (10-20-15). If you want retakes, please send in the original pictures. If you were absent during that time, please send in the picture envelope if you would like to purchase pictures.
  • ·         If you haven’t joined PTA please do so because that is a great way to great way to get a school directory. I will not be compiling a classroom directory due to privacy protocols.
