August 17, 2015
We had a great full week of school last week. All of the students were in attendance every day and I want to take a moment to thank you for getting your child to school every day and they were all on time.
I would like to ask you once again to talk to your child about the importance of listening and paying attention during instructional time in the classroom. Please talk to your child about good behavior also. I will begin this week sending home a behavior chart every afternoon in their homework folder which will show their behavior for the day. Please sign and return this form each day to let me know that you are aware of your child’s behavior each day.
We will be taking pictures on August 24, 2015. A packet will be sent home soon which will list all packages offered and the price of the package.
If you have not already paid the Activity Fee ($12.00) and PTO Fee ($5.00) please do so as soon as possible. We would like to have 100% participation by October 31, 2015. Thank you to the ones who have already taken care of this.
What we will be learning this week:
- Letters and Sounds: Ff, Gg, Hh, Ii, Jj (review Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, Ee)
- High Frequency Words: I, am
MATH: Numbers 1-5, counting groups of objects, understanding 1 or more. (Please allow your child to sort objects by groups of 2s, 5s, and 10s: beans, buttons, Lego’s etc.)
LANGUAGE ARTS: Please read the story that will be in your child’s homework folder to them each night. Help them to read it back to you. Ask them questions about what they remember from the story (characters, setting, etc.) PLEASE INITIAL AND SEND THIS BACK EACH DAY.
