I would like to start off by saying “ThankYou” for coming to Meet the Teacher Night. What a wonderful turn out. Â Also, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to teach your wonderful children!!
We are off and running this week with our Reading Street Program. We will be working in whole group learning as well as small group learning. It is our first week of spelling words. The Spelling Menu will be going home with the weekly homework list. Normally we would complete these items in our “Green”notebooks, however, they have not been delivered yet. I will send home some paper for the assignments to be completed on. Fingers crossed the notebooks will be delivered this week. The homework list will have practice story written on Wednesday. There is no title as the students may have different titles to read. They are stories I will be sending home to the students to read and return.
This week in Math we will be concentrating on using number bonds to decompose numbers and find a variety of ways to make numbers between 5-10. We will be using colored disks and ten frames as ways to find different ways to make the numbers. The students will have homework on Tuesday and Thursday this week. As I told you Thursday night, the classwork will be attached to the homework for guidance if needed. I write the module and lesson on the homework list. If for any reason you child has forgotten or lost the homework you can use this a reference to go to the www.engageny.com site to download the missing assignment.
This Thursday is school pictures. The first-grade pictures are usually right away in the morning. If you are ordering pictures please make sure to send in the form in the morning.
We will be collecting for the hurricane victims until Wednesday. Just a reminder, any child that donates will be given a sunshine to color, add their name and hand around our classroom door.
