Holiday Heart Program

Teasley Families,

Please consider providing a little Christmas Cheer to a few of our Teasley families by participating in our Holiday Hearts Program.  We are asking people to donate a gift card that will be shared with families who need a little extra support over the holidays.  Cards can be placed in a white envelope and dropped in the school safe by Friday, Dec. 14.  Thanks for any donation you can make!  Please contact the counselors with any questions.  770-437-5945.

Support Atlanta United

Dear Parents,

What a great time to be in Atlanta this weekend! Our very own professional soccer team, Atlanta United, has qualified for the Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup!  What is the MLS cup?  This is the equivalent of the Super Bowl for soccer, and the first time Atlanta United has qualified, which is impressive for a two year old team.

Friday (12/7) is our Atlanta United Spirit Day!   Please have your child wear their Atlanta United gear, red shirt, gold shirt, or black shirt. Students still need to wear their standard attire bottoms. We want to rep our hometown team!

United & Conquer!

Biblionasium is HERE!

Today Mrs. Crosby introduced the children to Biblionasium. Biblionasium is a fun way for the children to record what they are reading. The goal is to read 20 minutes a day. If they read a total of 600 minutes by the end of each month, they get a surprise from Mrs. Crosby.

Follow this link below to learn more:

Your child’s login for Biblionasium is their student identification number, which is located on the front of their Agenda and the password is read.

Username: Student ID      Password: read

Here are three books you can add to your child’s book shelf because I have read them in class:

A Porcupine Named Fluffy

The Honest to Goodness Truth

Unlovable

 

Learning for the Weeks of August 20-31, 2018

Math

Over the past two weeks we focused on Place Value and adding and subtracting within 20 using Base-Ten Blocks and a Number Line. This week our focus will shift to solving one-step word problems using the Base-Ten and/or Number Line Strategies.

Inquiry into English/Language Arts

Our focus has been on learning the spelling patterns ai and ay for the long a sound and the spelling patterns ee and ea for the long e sound. We have also been learning about Common Nouns and Proper Nouns. This week we are continuing the Spelling Patterns ee and ea. We are also learning about Collective Nouns this week.

Our focus in Reading is asking and answering questions before, during, and after reading to deepen our understanding of what we read. We are learning to retell a story by making sure we we include certain information in each part of our story: Beginning: characters and setting are introduced, and sometimes a challenge or problem, Middle: events take place where the main character is trying to solve a problem or meet a challenge, and the Ending: tells how the problems was solved or how the character has changed from the way they were or felt at the beginning of the story.

Narrative Writing continues to be our focus. We are working to make sure we include certain information in each part of our story that answers the questions: Who is the story about? When does the story take place? Where does the story take place? What is happening? Why did the story take place? How did the character feel?  We are also working on writing a strong beginning that grabs readers’ attention and makes them want to keep reading.

Inquiry into Science

Transdisciplinary Theme:  How the World Works- An inquiry into the natural world and its laws

Central Idea: Changing physical properties may affect classification.

We have been exploring the three states of matter and their properties. We have classified objects and substances contained inside objects as: solid, liquid, or gas. We have investigated how a substance can change states and possibly, classification when heat is applied or taken away. The children have really enjoyed the hands-on experiences they have had during this line of study.

Reminders

Please remember to send checks or money in a sealed envelope with this information written on the front: child’s full name, my name, grade level, amount of money enclosed, and the purpose of the money. I am not allowed to handle any money.

Please check your child’s Take Home Folder for information that might have been sent home and remove any papers from the back pocket. Check their Behavior Chart in their Agenda and initial that you have seen it and discussed their color with them.

Encourage your child to READ, READ, READ! Read to them, too, so they can hear what fluent reading sounds like and work to emulate it. Let them use Raz-Kids to strengthen their reading skills. The login information is on the front of their agendas.
