Last week, we began practicing the skill of writing down a spoken phonogram without the visual card. This is called a written phonogram review. We will continue to do this kind of practice all week. Next week, our focus phonograms will be practiced in writing Monday through Wednesday, with a pretest on Thursday and a final test on Friday. The final grade will be entered into the grade book, and this will be a familiar weekly pattern for the rest of the year. I encourage you to add pencil and paper practice to your homework time along with the oral phonogram practice. Have your child practice printing the phonogram as you say it, and then show him/her the card. It is a wonderful feeling of success and confidence for a child to do this. It also helps a parent to isolate the phonograms that are not yet secured.
In math, we will be working on writing our numerals 8 and 9, continuing to create addition combinations, working on graphs, and continuing to review concepts previously taught.
MORNING STUDENTS PARENTS: You will have noticed that there is a new set of teachers doing pick-up at 11:00am. They do not know you and will definitely need you to have your placard visible so they can find your child and get them to your car. If someone else is picking up your child, make sure they have a placard. If you forgot your placard, wear your ID badge so that they can identify you. You may be sent to the office to identify yourself if you do not have these forms of identification to pick your child up!
Extended day will involve a spooky unit on Spiders. If you’re a squirmy parent, don’t plan on volunteering this weekJ.
Keep an eye out for Box Tops on any food that you have in your house. We are trying to earn money for the school with Box Tops points. There is a contest that will go on all year to see which classroom can bring in the most! So get friends and family involved in clipping those Box Tops and send them in!
IMPORTANT DATES: November 2nd – Spirit Day November 9th – Early Release @ 12:15 for Staff Development* *Morning students may stay until 12:15 if they come with a lunch November 12th – No School in honor of Veteran’s Day
Have a great week!
