It was great seeing all of you at the Fall Festival Friday evening. Although it was terribly hot, it certainly didn’t stop all of the kiddos from having a great time. Ms. Kim, Ms. Marchelle and Mrs. Munroe got dunked a bunch of times! 🙂 From the amount of families I saw, the festival had a very nice turnout! Thank you for supporting our school!
On the Academic Agenda this Week:
Math: We will begin the week with review of Fact Families, and continue working on Addition & Subtraction within 10, as well as using a Ten Frame.
Reader’ Workshop: Our practice of looking for chunks in words with Chunky Monkey continues. I will begin DRA testing with individual students as I prepare for report cards and conferences in a few weeks.
Phonics: We will continue looking at ending blends in words
Grammar: Our mentor sentence this week will cover plural nouns.
Writer’s Workshop: Students shared their latest narrative writing pieces during Author’s Chair on Friday. I was very proud of the transition words they incorporated within them.
Social Studies: Our study of Landforms continues.
Fall Break is next week! Although everyone is looking forward to a nice, relaxing time off, please don’t forget to include daily reading into the routine. Congratulations to Audrey, Lukas and Logan for being our Top Home Readers this month. They were rewarded with a special pumpkin cookie from Panera Bread and a certificate for their hard work. 🙂 Who will be next?? Keep logging in those books!
