Happy Friday! The students are working on appropriate behavior in and outside of our classroom. They have been earning "heart points." Once they reach 10 heart points we will have a small celebration. Today, we will celebrate our good behavior by having popcorn, some orange soda, and a sucker! Please talk to your child about appropriate behavior. Some students do a great job in our classroom, but when they go to art or music they seem to forget how they should be acting. Thank you!
Monday, September 18th Judge Nethercut will attend morning prayer and talk to the students about the importance of the Constitution.
Friday, September 22nd is a jean day. Please make sure you follow the dress code guidelines for jean days. Thank you.
Reading: Next week our basal selection is What does Pig Do? A pig moves through a busy week. Each new day brings a different activity until Sunday, when Pig decides to take a nap. Skills we will focus on include: the short "i" sound, days of the week, writing in complete sentences, using illustrations, context clues, and sequencing.
Phonics: The students will work on the initial and final consonant sounds h, m, k; they will also review the j, f, and g sounds.
Spelling: We will work with the spelling words during the week. The words are included in the reading selection for the week. If your child studies the spelling words they will be more successful reading the selection for the week as well as the leveled readers. The pretest will be given on Wednesdays and the final test will be given on Fridays.
Spelling list: dig, pig, pin, win, pick, kick, does, her, look, there
Handwriting: Next week we will practice writing numerals.
Math: Please purchase or make addition flash cards for numbers 0-9. Next week in math we will make 9, introduce addition and subtraction number sentences, and learn about adding in any order.
Science: We will learn about scientists. We will talk about how a scientist questions, observes, measures, and records.
Social Studies: We will work on calendar skills.
Religion: We will talk about how we gather at church. The students will discover how Jesus is with us when we gather at church.
