Treasure Box Items Needed  We need your help to add some excitement! To our treasure box. Please send pencils, pens, erasers, note pads, party favors (dinosaurs, rings, bracelets, yo-yos, cars, trucks, whistles), stickers, etc.  They love visiting the treasure box when they earn 5 sticks. Let’s continue to reward them for their amazing Tiger Pride Behavior! 

FIREFIGHTER VISIT: On Thursday, 9/14 we had a firefighter come to school to teach the students about fire safety.

 THE PARTY ANIMALS IN-HOUSE FIELD TRIP TODAY was amazing! The students got to touch (using 2 fingers) many different animals and only look at others; from a chinchilla to tarantula, an iguana, lizard, snake, turtles and others. It was a great addition to the animal unit we recently began in class. Thank you all for returning permission slips and money. You are amazing! 

SEPTEMBER HOMEWORK: Please return student homework journals after the break on Monday Oct 2. Any journals handed in Sept 22 will be returned that day as well.  PLEASE NOTESome assignments will not require writing or drawing. 

MEDIA CENTER: We try to visit the Media Center each week. Due to the media center schedule, we do not always get the same day each week. One suggestion I can offer to make sure your child has their book to exchange is to keep their book in their backpack after you read it each night. We try to put a note in the purple folder that “Library is tomorrow”, but occasionally we may forget. Thank you for your help!

TIGER READING CHALLENGE: The directions for Biblionasium (Tiger Reading Challenge) went home in the purple folders a few weeks ago. Visit Mrs. Crosby’s blog for more information. http://www.cobblearning.net/teasleylibrary/tiger-reading-challenge/ Happy Reading!  

PERFECT ATTENDANCE:  Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Coming to school every day on-time is a key ingredient to student success. The Teasley Attendance Team wants to reward those students who come to school ready to learn and on time every day. Any student who has perfect attendance through the end of the 1st 9 weeks, Friday, October 6th, will receive recognition for their attendance. These students will receive a free dress down day, a surprise treat, and their pictures will be featured on the WWTN news broadcast. Students who have perfect attendance for the entire school year will be invited to a special celebration during the last week of school to praise their commitment to their education. Thank you for your support in getting your student to school every day! (no tardies)

Our academic focus for last week(s):

Sight Words:

Focus:  at, see, he, do

Review:   the , I  , to  , a, is,  my,  go,  me, like, on, in, so, we, it, and, up

Please practice these words at home with your child. Use the “Say it!”, “Spell it!”, “Say it!” technique. It also helps to have your child practice using their sight words in a sentence.

Phonics:  

Focus: Ll, Mm, Nn -We will practice correct letter formation, identification, and beginning sounds. We are continuing to practice listening skills and rhyming daily.

Review:  Aa, Bb , Cc, Dd, Ee, Ff, Gg, Hh, Ii, Jj, Kk

*Please practice identifying upper and lower case letters and their sounds with your child at home. You may also want to have your child name a word that begins with each letter sound.

Reading:

During Reader’s workshop we are identifying main idea, supporting details, and asking questions to learn more about the books we are reading.

Writing: 

During Writer’s Workshop we are drawing detailed pictures, labeling our pictures to tell more about it; stretching out our sounds to spell words and adding sentences to tell more about experiences we have had.

Math:

Daily counting to 100 with Jack Hartman and “Number Talks” (representing numbers in a variety of ways) ten frames, five frames, dot cards. Our upcoming focus will be sorting and discussing how 2D and 3D shapes are the same or different.

Math standard: MGSEK.G.4 -Consistently and independently analyzes AND compares 2-D shapes in different sizes and orientations using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, and other attributes

*Practice counting to 100 by 1’s at home.  

When your child can successfully count to 100 without prompting offer them a challenge:

  • Have him/her start from a given number and count on. (say, “start at 4 and stop at 20” , “start at 12 and stop at 35”..etc.)
  • Have him/her count down(backwards) from 50 or 100 to 0.
  • Ask your child “What number comes after ___ ?” “What number comes before ___?

Science: 

Students will work on categorizing living and nonliving things. Students will sort these into groups by using observable physical attributes.

Science Standards for the Week: SKL1 Students will sort living organisms and non-living materials into groups by observable physical attributes. SKL1.a Recognize the difference between living organisms and nonliving materials.

 (9/25-9/29): FALL BREAK! -NO SCHOOL 

 Enjoy your week with your wonderful children!
