What a week it has been! I would like to say a huge thank you to the parents who were able to attend Curriculum Night on Thursday. I love to communicate with everyone about what is going on in our classroom. It is so fun to share stories about your children and the awesome things they do each day! If you missed it, no worries! I sent the "Curriculum Packet" home in your child's red folder. If you have any questions about that information feel free to contact me.
This week was a little crazy. Rainy days, lots of energy, and watching our Principal get soaked in ice cold water. Yes, that really happened! I am sure you are all aware of the "Ice Bucket Challenge" people have been partaking in to raise awareness and money for ALS. Rover took on the challenge this week, and we had tons of fun watching some of our staff members get soaked for a great cause. Here is a picture of our class eagerly awaiting the challenge!
Reading: On Monday we are starting "Walk to Read!" Remember your child will now be with a different teacher for our reading block. Look for more information and a homework packet coming home from that teacher. As a grade level we will still be working on the same phonics sound, short vowel o. And the same focus skill, sequencing events.
Math: We will be working on different strategies to use when solving addition problems. The strategies include:
*Using a Number Line
*Making Doubles to Add
Writing: We will continue to work on Personal Narratives with a focus this week on word choice.
Science: We will finish our unit about the four seasons.
Grammar: Our focus this week is Action Verbs. We will be building sentences using mental and physical action verbs!
*Library is Monday, so make sure your child returns their book.
