Weekly News: September 25-29


Happy Autumn! This week we will be reading and writing all about fall. 

We are so excited about our field trip next Tuesday! Thank you to the parents who volunteered to chaperone. We gave our final head count on Friday. Please send your child to school this day in a normal shirt (we will be throwing their brand new field trip t-shirt over their clothing) and without a snack (snack will be provided). Please keep an eye out for field trip permission slips being sent home soon and return them ASAP. Students will NOT BE ABLE TO GO ON THE FIELD TRIP WITHOUT A SIGNED PERMISSION SLIP :( Thank you! If you have not done so already, please do not forget to donate towards the field trip under Dollar A Day! Here is the link: Dollar A Day.  

Please remember to bring your book bags to school every day. The worksheets and books inside your book bag are to be worked on every night at home and we work on them every day at school. 


What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: TAKE, AN, BECAUSE, UP. 

Letter Team:  OW/OU (like in COW, FLOWER/OUCH, HOUSE) and the long OW sound (like in YELLOW SNOW).  

Word Family:  -AN. Please help your child with word families of the week by asking them to create different words with the word family -an (can, man, pan, etc.) 

Reading: This week, we will begin reading books about Autumn and leaves. We will also finish our author study on Mo Willems. This week, we will also learn about matter as we read a big book together about matter. We will learn that matter is anything that takes up space. In this book, we will learn that when we are reading or writing a word that begins with a vowel, we put "AN" in front of that word - for example, "an elephant" instead of "a elephant" - please reinforce this at home in writing and in speech. 

Writing: Students will each make their own individual writing goal this week and I will begin holding special writing "conferences" with students to work on their goals. 

Math: We will keep working hard on counting goals, number writing goals, number ID goals, and shapes. We will keep playing tens frame games and we will begin learning how to solve word problems. 

Leadership: For the month of September, our whole school will be focusing on the first R of ROAR: Respect. We will discuss ways that we can respect ourselves, others, and our school.
