Weekly News: October 28-November 1



We have been having fun learning all about pumpkins and on Thursday, we will celebrate Halloween with some fun pumpkin centers, crafts, games, and investigations. Part of these centers will include investigating pumpkins by measuring, scooping, and counting seeds. This can get REALLY MESSY - we know Halloween is PAJAMA DAY, but it would also be a good idea to send an old button up shirt, a "daddy shirt", or an apron for your child to wear over their pajamas on this day! We are excited for this fun activity!  


There is no school on Monday, November 11th due to Veteran's Day and no school for students on Monday, November 18th due to parent conferences. If you have not signed up for a parent conference yet, please check the ParentSquare sign up post to choose a time that is best for you. I am looking forward to meeting with all of you to discuss your child's growth in the classroom. Because we only have so much time per conference, I'd like to politely ask that you arrive on time so we can make the most of our time together. If possible, please make other arrangements for your children, as parent conferences are for parents and teachers only. Thank you!



What Are We Learning This Week:

Sight Words: IN, ON, SO, GO, DO. 

Letter Team: This week we are learning about Mr. ER's two crazy cousins....UR and IR (like in FUR, CURL and STIR, GIRL).

Word Family:  This week we will be making words with the word families -EN (HEN, MEN, TEN).  Please help your child with word families of the week by asking them to create different words with the word families.

Reading: We will read many fun books about Halloween and continue to read non-fiction books as we learn about pumpkins. We will continue to read our paper books and books from our class library. Students will continue to work on flashcards, sounds, sight words, and books in their book bags - please remember to bring these every day! 

Writing: We have been learning how to write personal narrative stories - which is a story from our life. We are practicing using an uppercase at the beginning of a sentence, finger spaces after each word, and a period at the end.

Math: I will continue to assess each student on counting, numbers, and shapes. We will also play fun addition games. 

Leadership: For the month of October, 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.
