Weekly Announcements 10/20/17

Hello Parents!

We’ve had a great week back!  Everyone seems rested and refreshed!

Please practice the sound ring at home and watch the videos that are being sent to ensure that you are saying the sounds correctly with your child. You can also take the sound cards off the ring to create words to read, but make sure you put the cards back on the ring. Please make sure the ring is always in the proper place in their book bag so that we can add on sounds as we learn them. Thank you!  Here is the latest link for the new sounds.  Some sounds will be learned next week.

Here are some updates and important information:

-Field trip to the farm is October 30th. We will depart from school 8:15am, and return around 2pm.If you are not a driver, please make sure you send in your child’s car seat on that morning, otherwise, they will not be able to attend the field trip.

-If you haven’t already, please purchase your student’s tie dye shirt. Your student will need this to wear on field trip days!  You can contact the office to learn how to purchase one.  These shirts can also be worn on Spirit days with jeans.  Spirit days are usually the last Friday of the month.

-Our recess begins at 9:30, it is still very chilly even if the forecast calls for warmer weather later in the day. Please send your child with a labeled jacket every morning.

Here is an overview of what we will learn this upcoming week:

Math: We will review our unit on numbers 1-10. We will have an assessment on Wednesday. On Thursday, we will begin our unit on ordering numbers. We will count and recite numbers 1-10 and students will observe that the numbers increase by their magnitude.

Domain (Listening and Learning): We will begin our new domain: Plants.   We will learn plant parts and life cycles. We will read stories about plants called, “The Gigantic Turnip” and “Polly the Honey Bee”. We are going to also be doing plant experiments!

Skills: We will continue to learn the sounds of the alphabet. We will learn the new sounds, “v, z, p, e”. We will blend all these sounds to form words by using our pocket charts and playing games. Please do not refer to these sounds by their letter name.  Call them by their sound.  After winter break we will begin to learn letter names.

Have a wonderful weekend!
