Weekly News: October 8-12


This week we will read and learn all about bats. We will explore non-fiction text and write facts that we are learning about bats. 

Our field trip to Greenspot is NEXT WEEK! Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to chaperone. Chaperones may either ride the bus with us or drive separate. Please remember to bring your $8 cash. We will be sending out digital permission slips for the field trip via ParentSquare this week, so keep an eye out for those digital permission slips and complete it as soon as you can! We are also asking for snack donations on the day of our field trip. There will be a ParentSquare post if you would like to donate. 



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. We will also work on sounding out CVC words. 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. We will continue to work on Ways to Make 5 and addition and subtraction problems within 5. We have been playing a fun card game in class to help with this - check out our video on our Classroom Instagram. Rosie and Evan will teach you how to play so that you can play at home!

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.
