News for Week of January 29th

We completed our first 5 day week of January, way to go! I am so proud of the students because they jumped right in last week and worked very hard. I’ve seen a lot of growth in the days we have been at school, so thank you parents for working with them at home!

ASP Tax forms will be sent home this Monday, so be on the look out for those.

Our craft project for the month of February will also be coming home in folders. It will be a heart that you can help them decorate and return for display in the hallway.

The writing journals that came home last month can be used for homework the remainder of the year. There will be a lot more writing in this last half of the year, so the journal should make it more organized. Students can show me the homework journal at the end of the month.

Please note the following changes to the pick up and drop off procedures at Sedalia Park:

  • The front parking lot will no longer be used for student drop off or parent parking until 8:00 am.

  • Sedalia Park staff will no longer be at the corner of Utica and Old Sewell to escort students to the front door.

  • Parking on Old Sewell is prohibited. Students who walk to school must be escorted to the front door by a parent or guardian.

  • The car line is the only way to bring students to school or pick them up in your vehicle.

Thank you for understanding the importance of keeping our students safe and supporting this decision.

Here is what we are learning the week of January 29th (can you believe it is almost February?!)

Math: Decomposing Numbers (through 5)

Reading: Penguins, sequencing story events, compare and contrast books on the same topic

Writing: Opinions

Science: What is Matter?

Here’s to a great week!


Happy New Year

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

I can’t believe we’re already 4 days into 2018! I hope everyone enjoyed Winter break and that we’re rested and ready to tackle Quarter 3.

During the 3rd quarter, we’ll begin addition and subtraction in math, start to write our opinions in Writing, and cover interesting topics in Social Studies and Science. Since our week is short, we will review past concepts in all subjects, and discuss New Year’s Day and resolutions so that we can attempt to make our own.

Next week, we will learn about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our Letter of the Week is /Nn/, and begin addition to 5 in Math.

Also, be on the look out for flyers coming home about STEAM Night at Sedalia Park.  It will take place next Thursday, January 11 from 4:30-6:30pm. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this fun night of Science, Math and Technology.

Into December

We had a good first week following Thanksgiving Break.  I’m thankful for this group of students, and most importantly a great group of parents!  The students did a good job with their introduction to Measurement. They also wrote about their favorite things to do during the Day and at Night, and learned the Letter U.  We read stories about the Gingerbread man and retold it after we read. On Friday, they decorated their own gingerbread boy or girl, and most of them loved eating it afterwards!

Here is what we are learning the week of December 4th:

Math: Measurement-I can compare objects by length, height, weight, and capacity.

Writing: I can write sentences using capital letters, finger spacing, and punctuation.

Reading: I can tell the difference between fiction and nonfiction stories.

Phonics: Letter Rr

Social Studies: I can learn about Christmas and how other cultures celebrate.

Continue working with your child to memorize their sight words. Read with them each day and have them retell the story events to you.  Practice all the letters they have learned: go over the sounds and how to form and write them.

Have a great week!
