News from Room 105

#### FROM THE TEACHER: We have been very busy here in our classroom working to complete the required academics for this first nine weeks. We have 2 weeks after we come back until the end of this nine week period. Just a reminder that there will be no school next week as it is our Fall break.

FIELD TRIP: Just a reminder that the permission slip and money for our upcoming field trip to see Peter Rabbit is on Oct 24th is due after the break. Thank you to all of the families who have send in their forms.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

We have spent the week reviewing the letters “b” and “m”. We will be repeating the alphabet over the next few months out of alphabetical order. Next week we will practice the letters “r” & “s”.  Please continue to work with your child at home if they don’t know all of the letters or sounds yet.  Knowing the letters and sounds plays a very important role as we learn to read.

We are working to get all of our students on blue or above on our sight word rainbow.  As of today 7 students are on blue, 5 are on green and 1 is on yellow. Their goal is to move up the rainbow to the top and then reach for the stars by learning 75 sight words. Please keep practicing the sight words with your child.  We spell and say the words 5 times each here in class each day. The word list is on the back of your child’s folder.

MATH: We have been working on 3D shapes in our classroom this week. We sorted different 2D and 3D shaped snacks today to share for snack. When we return we will be reviewing our numbers to 10 until the end of this nine weeks. We will then start working on the numbers 11 – 20.  We are also counting from 1 – 50 in our class every day to help the students on reach their long term goal of counting to 100.

INTEGRATED STUDIES: We are working on properties of matter here in our classroom. The key to this unit is to teach the children how to use their five senses in discovery. We have talked about the attributes of different objects and sorted them using our five senses.  We will use our five senses to discover some of the changes in our outdoors (fall) when we return from the break.

Have a great break!
