Weekly News: October 9-13



This week we will read and learn all about bats. We will explore non-fiction text and discuss the difference between fact and opinion. 

We had so much fun on our field trip to Los Rios. Thank you for all of your donations to Dollar a Day to make this possible for us and for all of out parent chaperones. Make sure you check out our pictures on the ParentSquare post.

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: WHEN, HAVE, BE, AM, WHAT.

Letter Team:  AW/AU (like in JAW/SAUCE). We will also review the letter team OO, remembering that it makes two sounds (like in LOOK and BOO!)

Word Family: -OT. Please help your child with word families of the week by asking them to create different words with the word family -OT (for example: COT, JOT, POT, SPOT). 

Reading: We will read many non-fiction books about bats. Students will continue to take home book bags for nightly reading practice. Since book bags are considered daily homework, it is crucial that they are brought back to school every day. 

Writing: This week, we will write non-fiction stories about what we are learning about bats. We will each work on our individual writing goals. 

Math: We will keep working hard on counting goals, number writing goals, number ID goals, and shapes. Our math focus this week is positional words. We will review our shapes and describe shapes using positional words. For example, "The cone is below the cube. The rectangle is beside the oval." We are sending home a cute scarecrow book this week to read with your child and help them use positional words. This is also my video focus this week - make sure to check out the video on ParentSquare for additional tips! 

Leadership: For the month of September, our whole school will be focusing on the O of ROAR: Own Your Actions. We will talk about what that means and how we can own our actions at school. Our goal is to have students take ownership of their own behavior as we all strive to be leaders in our classroom and school.
