NEWS FROM ROOM 105

FROM THE TEACHER:

  • Time is flying by this year and it is hard to believe that October is almost over. Thank you to all of the parents who dressed your children for red ribbon week. In Kindergarten we stress healthy living as a way to take care of ourselves.
  • We know that many of you will be celebrating Halloween next week. We ask that you not send any candy to school with your child for snack after Halloween.
  • Please let us know with a note or write on their calendar if your child will be leaving school early. It helps us make sure that your child is ready to go at the specified time.
  • We had a visit from illustrator Michael White this week. The children enjoyed watching him draw pictures of his various characters.

 FIELD TRIP: We will be going on our field trip to Petit Farms on Thursday next week. Please dress your child for the outdoors. Please have your child wear their red class shirt. We ask this for safety reasons. It is far easier to keep track of the children when they all have on the same shirt.

LANGUAGE ARTS: We continued to work on our phonics skills this week. We learned about the letter C & H. We practiced writing the letter and how it looks and sounds at the beginning of words. We also worked on sorting letters and pictures.  During readers workshop we have been learning about nonfiction or informational books.  We have been reading about fall this week and comparing books filled with information about bats.  Please continue to work on sight words at home. Students will need to know 25 sight words by the end of the second nine week period.

MATH: We have continued to work on our teen numbers this week. We will finish this unit next week and review to strengthen their knowledge of the numbers.

INTEGRATED STUDIES:  We have been working on a unit about night and day this week. As part of the unit we have learned about nocturnal animals and how they are different from us. We will be continue working on our unit about night and day next week.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Cassidy, Mrs. Perry and Mrs. Palmer
