Weekly News: September 19-23


We had so much fun making apple pies! Thank you for all of your donations and a special thank you to all of our fabulous parent helpers
for ALL of your help baking our pies! It would not have happened without you!  This week we will finish our unit on apples by making applesauce together! YAY!

Thank you to the families that attended our Parent Workshop last week. I really appreciate you taking the time to join me in the classroom and I hope that it was informational and helpful. :) 

We are getting excited about our field trip on Tuesday, October 4th to Los Rios Ranch in Oak Glenn. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to chaperone - if you have volunteered or would still like to volunteer, we will need your $7 cash admission fee BY FRIDAY.  If you haven’t yet turned in your $7 to chaperone, please do so ASAP. We need to get our head count to Los Rios Ranch. The chaperone money is paid directly to your class teacher and NOT to dollar a day. You may pay me directly at dismissal, but the best way is to put your $7 into an envelope and send it to school in your child's folder. Thank you! We are so excited to have so many wonderful chaperones joining us. 


Also please do not forget to donate towards the field trip under Dollar A Day! Here is the link: Dollar A Day. For this field trip, we are asking for a $20 donation and unfortunately, we are unable to go without the proper funds. Thank you so much for your support! 

I am excited to announce our room mom for the year, Lacey Andrian! 


Lacey is Ethan's mommy and will be our room mom this year. She will be sending monthly ParentSquare updates, as well as helping in the classroom with Friday centers, and special events/parties we will have throughout the year. Her contact information is: 909-838-7645 and laceyandrian@gmail.com. I will also put her contact information in the "Room Parent" tab of our website for future reference. 


What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: COME, AT, SAID.

Letter Team: CE/CI (we are learning that the letter C can make a soft sound when it is followed by an E or I like in "cent" and "city").  

Word Family: -IN. Please help your child with word families of the week by asking them to create different words with the word family -in (bin, fin, tin, etc.) 

Reading: This week we will learn what "quotations" are. We will read a big book together every day about our silly monster friends and use "quotations" when they say something. We will continue to read books about apples and Johnny Appleseed and finish our author study on Mo Willems. Students will continue to read little books in class that include sight words and letter teams. Please keep practicing them at home! We all have "Reading Goals" that we are working on in class during our Read to Self and Word Work time. Many of our reading goals are to master our letters and sounds. Please keep working on this at home. Our classroom goal is 100% letters and sounds by November!

Writing: We have all made writing goals in our class. Some friends writing goals are to use proper punctuation and use finger spaces, while other friends are ready to write three sentences on one topic. We will continue to write in our journal every day, each striving to accomplish our writing goal.  

Math: We will continue working on 2D flat shapes and 3D solid shapes.  We will explore the number of faces and vertices each 3D shape. We will also continue to identify, order, write, and count numbers to 30, learn the days of the week, months of the year, how to read and extend patterns, and identify what number comes next. 

Leadership: We will continue to learn how to ROAR in the classroom. The acronym ROAR stands for Respect self, others, and property, Own your actions, Act safely, and Rise to servant leadership. This week, we will discuss the A: Act Safely. We will talk about ways that we can act safely in and out of the classroom.
