Hello Families and Friends,
I’d like to start off by thanking ALL of you for coming to your child’s conference. It was great to sit down and discuss your children, and get to know all of you better. I appreciate you all taking the time to meet with me, and I look forward to meeting with you all again in February.
Our apple picking field trip last week was a success. We learned a lot about the apple trees, and honeybees that live at the apple orchard. The children did a great job listening and following directions, and picked some yummy apples!
This week we began Literacy centers. The children are broken into groups and work on different tasks that have to do with letters and sounds. As the year progresses these activities will be working with words, literacy skills such as rhyming and syllables and reading skills.
In math, we began unit 2 which focuses on Counting and Comparing. The focus of this unit is on counting and comparing quantities and beginning to explore measurement by directly comparing objects to see which is longer.
Our buckets are filling quickly and we’re working hard to follow our classroom rules that the students developed. These rules are: I can have a safe body. I can be respectful. I can take care of classroom materials. I can learn and have fun.
I’d also like to thank those of you who ordered books in our last book order! We were able to get 6 new books for our classroom from all the points! I will be sending home another book order in the upcoming weeks.
DATES TO REMEMBER:
Wednesday, October 29- Early Release Day
I hope you have a great weekend, and thank you again for all your cooperation! It’s greatly appreciated.
