I also wanted to encourage you to work hard at home on practicing oral and written phonograms. It really does help and shows in their grades each week. If you are already doing this, thank you!
We are continuing word entry into our Spalding notebooks and this will become part of each week’s work as well as daily reading of these words. All this practice and format is in preparation for spelling. Reading simple words should also become part of nightly homework.
In math, we will introduce the number family of 30’s, continue addition facts 0 – 6, and work with the value and identification of the penny, nickel, and dime. Our number recognition test will be on 18 - 29
Please keep practicing the December poem. We will begin graded recitations this week! Please make sure your child knows their poem.
In extended day, we will continue our unit on winter that will flow into a unit on some traditional crafts.
Parents, with the weather change, it is very important that you still send a labeled, pop-top water bottle and a LABELED jacket to school with your child EVERY day. There are some students who consistently lose their jackets due to no name written inside.
Please remember that students have early release on Thursday, December 20th, which is the same day as the winter party. Mrs. Davies and Mrs. Callahan have already sent home information regarding the party. Make sure to fill the party form out and return it ASAP! Let me know if you did not get the form. The party begins at 11:00 a.m. Parents/Grandparents are welcome to attend this fun time, but please remember thatsiblings are not allowed at the party, (I do make an exception for very young, nursing infants). If your child will not be attending the party, please let me know.
Have a great week!
